Highlights of the Opioid Treatment Program
Caron’s Opioid Treatment Program incorporates proven, medically driven methods for treating opioid addiction. Individual and group therapy allow you to address mental health and emotional issues that stand in the way of your long-term recovery. Through modalities like dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and cognitive processing therapy (CPT), you can build a foundation to sustain your recovery.
Caron’s Opioid Treatment Program includes:
- Comprehensive medical screenings and psychological assessments.
- Medical detoxification services in our state-of-the-art medical center.
- Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to provide relief from symptoms.
- Specialty groups that offer a space to work on mental health issues or co-occurring disorders, as well as life skills to form a solid foundation for recovery.
- Holistic therapies, ranging from mindfulness meditation and yoga to fitness activities and nutritional consultation.
- Spiritual support.
- The use of technology to assess, measure, monitor, and identify common physical and mental opioid relapse indicators so we can intervene immediately.
Located on our Pennsylvania campus, the Opioid Program incorporates overall mental behavioral health, including treatment of co-occurring disorders.
With more than 60 years of history treating substance use disorder and process addictions, Caron emphasizes Recovery for Life. Its cornerstones are clinical excellence and uncompromising patient-centered care. That's why we provide every patient with lifetime support. Substance use disorder is a chronic treatable brain disease that requires a long-term management plan.
At Caron, we believe it is critical for the family to be part of their loved one’s treatment process. Our multi-day family program is designed to provide family members with the information they need to better understand substance use disorder, mental health disorders, and how best to support their loved one in their recovery. The program enables the whole family to recover and move forward in ways that lead to optimal emotional health for everyone.

For those who would benefit from extended treatment of their opioid use disorder, including individuals who have participated in a primary treatment program outside of Caron, we have extended care options within the Opioid Treatment Program and the Caron continuum. Together with your treatment team, you will address underlying issues that could be a barrier to long-term recovery, learn life and coping skills, and develop a continuing care plan that can support you in getting past cravings or a desire to relapse.
