Family Support and Treatment

Caron Florida recognizes the impact of addiction on both the individual and the family. At Caron, the family is wholly integrated into treatment, so that both the patient and family members can move forward into a healthy recovery. While family programming looks different for everyone, all plans include the following core elements:

  • The Residential Family Program is designed to reset relationships and in turn strengthen family bonds. A family member lives with you so that you can work together to improve your relationship. The program provides the clinical team the opportunity to better understand the relationship, highlight concerns in real time, and address the issues fueling challenges in the relationship.
  • Family therapy supported by a dedicated family therapist with extensive experience in family systems treatment recalibrates the family system so that it is healthy and functions well for everyone.
  • Family Workshop is a three-day program that includes individual, family, and group family therapy with highly trained individual and family therapists.
  • Clinical impact visits, set up as clinically appropriate, allow visits from family members, professional colleagues, and friends so that they can participate in groups and/or family sessions with you.
