Caron has worked in recent years to develop a formal training program for spiritual care professionals in the addiction field. Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE), the recognized standard for chaplain training in hospital and end-of-life care, has been adapted at Caron to fit the setting of secular, residential substance use and behavioral health care.

All of Caron’s spiritual counselors at the Pennsylvania campus have completed at least one unit of CPE, a substantial commitment that includes documented personal, individual, and group work. The CPE participant at Caron becomes conversant in clinical models of addiction care and how the discipline of spiritual care contributes to patient assessment and supports ongoing recovery. Treatment is enhanced with commitment to action steps that integrate with team, patient, and family objectives.

Caron’s CPE program, accredited through the Center for Spiritual Care and Pastoral Formation, offers selected opportunities for seminarians, local clergy, and appropriately prepared lay persons to be trained at Caron’s Pennsylvania campus in providing the very best in professional spiritual care as recovery begins.
