Health and Wellness at Caron Pennsylvania

Caron Pennsylvania features a state-of-the-art fitness center, which includes a full-sized gymnasium for organized recreation like volleyball and basketball and an indoor challenge course for adventure-based counseling. It also has a weight training and exercise studio that’s staffed by experienced instructors. Patients exercise at the fitness center almost daily.

Fitness and exercise opportunities at Caron Pennsylvania also include off-site trips, where patients bond as a community and get a taste of life in recovery. Excursions vary by program and season, but may include:

  • White water rafting
  • Hiking
  • Bicycle rides
  • Camping trips and retreats
  • Indoor rock climbing

Afterwards, certified recreational staff members lead group discussions on insecurity, anxiety and triggers that patients may have experienced while off campus.

Yoga and Addiction Recovery

We offer yoga at both Caron Pennsylvania and Caron Renaissance. Skills taught in yoga—such as breathing exercises, self-affirmation mantras and mindfulness meditation—facilitate addiction recovery. In fact, yoga has been shown to help patients in addiction rehab control impulses and master techniques to overcome cravings and compulsions. We also offer trauma sensitive yoga groups.

*All Caron yoga instructors are certified and registered. Some are also certified as Integrative Yoga Therapists and Certified Yoga of Recovery Teachers.
