Drugs & Alcohol Treatment
Caron Renaissance has been treating adult men and women addicted to drugs and/or alcohol for more than 23 years.
All of the drug and alcohol treatment programs at Caron Renaissance are staffed by clinical professionals dedicated to excellent, compassionate care. Each patient works with a treatment team including several disciplines:
- Social work
- Spiritual guidance
- Other specialties
The staff at Caron Renaissance also specializes in treating patients who experience co-occurring disorders or who have a history of failed recovery. The treatment team utilizes treatment methods that are highly effective in addressing and dealing with other disorders such as depression, anxiety disorders, narcissism, and borderline personality disorders, in addition to an individual’s drug and/or alcohol dependency.
Each patient is clinically assessed and then challenged to work outside their comfort zone, all within the safety net of Caron Renaissance’s clinical expertise and peer support. This works to create an environment that promotes maturity and success for patients.
A typical day of drug and alcohol treatment begins with morning exercise, clinical orientation groups or psycho-dynamic groups followed by individual sessions, self-inventory, or family work. Another vital aspect of treatment is peer therapy. Caron Renaissance is carefully structured to foster healthy peer interaction and, as needed, challenge addictive behavior and thinking. This non-enabling approach assumes that a healthy peer group will help a group member identify self-destructive behaviors in an atmosphere of support and caring. Patients meet regularly in community groups and also select their own leaders as part of a self-governing process.
The drug and alcohol treatment schedule at Caron Renaissance is comprehensive, intense, and well-coordinated. This structure leaves time for reflection, recreation, and personal growth. As patients progress in treatment, their schedules shift away from intensive treatment activities toward experiencing more real-life responsibilities in off-campus settings in surrounding communities. This transition while still a part of supervised treatment, is integral in preparing patients to return to society as productive contributors. Patient may:
