"Working together with the collegiate recovery services we were able to establish a therapeutic alliance with the clinical team at Caron and support my student’s transition to treatment and then eventually his return to campus."

"I feel these types of programs are lacking out there as I have not heard of anything like this before. Programs like these help students to transition back to college smoothly and successfully when they are ready. Students entering back into college without programs like this to assist and prepare them may find it more difficult to enter back and ultimately succeed."

Former Assistant Director of Admissions
"Working collaboratively with Caron's Collegiate Recovery Services has given many of our clients the opportunity to obtain an additional layer of support in accomplishing their academic and recovery goals. Specifically, Caron's comprehensive collegiate services help students to come into our program with an effective academic plan and clinically driven action steps to accomplish their goals."
Serenity Lodge, Recovery House for Men
"Caron's collegiate recovery team kept me on track with starting an online course over the summer before the fall semester and helping me stay on top of my assignments. With my weekly counseling sessions and the amazing community we have within the sober dorm, I have been able to enjoy my college experience and surpassed my expectations on how my first semester would go."
"The collegiate recovery services turned my ill-defined ambitions and shadowy ideas into specific goals, and then into tangible assignments, and then into a physical reality – to a place, to one college, where I believe I will be able to flourish. I know I could not have made this journey alone."
Sally – 1st
collegiate services participant
"It has helped me to maintain my recovery in college, and to flourish here- in grades, athletics, extra-curricular research, employment, romantic relationships, and all of the other things I felt my life before recovery so desperately lacked- happiness and purpose, most of all."
Michael – collegiate services participant
"Working with the team and having the support of the Caron staff, allows us to create an environment where typical challenges of being on a college campus while recovery are minimized and opportunities for success are maximized."
