Continuing Care Planning for the Patient
Throughout inpatient treatment at Caron, we’re constantly planning and strategizing to help you or your loved one continue in recovery after treatment. A patient's multi-disciplinary treatment team collaborates frequently throughout the treatment process to develop and refine one's continuing care plan prior to discharge. The plan, based on each individual's needs and experience in treatment, will include tools and recommendations to sustain one's recovery.
Components of one's plan may include:
- finding a sponsor
- individual and family counseling
- referral information
- nutrition and/or fitness plans
- resources and tools to stay connected to Caron via alumni support groups and networks, fellowship groups, and/or alumni activities
Some circumstances call for additional treatment, or for a gradual return to the outside world. In these cases, we might recommend:
- Structured Sober Living, an opportunity to live in a drug-free, healthy environment with staff, in-house recovery meetings, and an outpatient counselor. Residents can work or go to school, and may stay for three to six months.
- Extended Care Program, similar to Structured Sober Living, with with ongoing treatment and additional structure.
One's treatment team makes sure each person who leaves Caron has a support system in place, an accountability plan established, and the necessary tools needed for maintaining sobriety. Family members also receive a continuing care plan. Caron is committed to supporting patients and their families through the critical first days, weeks and month of the recovery process.
