One of the few treatment centers that are willing to focus on parents of addicts. Excellent job addressing enabling and codependency. Their family weekends were very powerful

Very intensive behavior based treatment. Not for everyone, but it's unique and effective. The transition out could have been a lot smoother. Putting people in a position to effectively address all the...

Family therapists were good. Primary therapists were bad. They need to incorporate compassion in their treatment philosophy. If a client breaks a rule or doesn't follow program directions, they are p...

This is a center basically designed for young spoiled brats who have gotten into some trouble and their parents are sick of them. But if they don\'t clean their rooms or have jobs, you can sure count ...

I was a guest at Ocean Drive for 56 days. The staff is amazing, if you are willing, they will help you achieve success.

Two of our children were treated at Caron Renaissance. Although it was difficult, at times, for them both, they continue to maintain their sobriety and to give back to the community from which they re...

If you want an ACCURATE conceptualization of what Caron Renaissance is and WHY they do what they do please take a minute to read my personal testimony. I am a recovered alcoholic, a graduate student, ...

This place is designed for young men ages 18-25 though there are female patients (less than 25%) and some people over 25 (about 15%). This is a break you down and build you back up treatment model. ...

I spent 9 months at Caron Renaissance. It was an absolutely terrifying experience. Let me say: the reps here will say practically anything to get you in the door and under their thumb and will keep...

My expectations were not met. Unprofessional treatment of broken relationships and judgmental behavior is not acceptable. Also very expensive. I would not recommend.

Don\'t make the same mistake I made! DON\'T GET CLOSE TO THAT PLACE!!!

Way too expensive. The staff was exceptionally professional, highly educated, intelligent and compassionate. The facility was clean, bussiness like.

A-typical treatment style. Believes in preparing the patient for the real world and being able to handle emotional hardship and strew without seeking external solutions. Grueling and difficult, but de...

The discharge procedures are dangerous and life-threatening. When a patient violates the rules, the patient can be thrown out immediately without sufficient precautions.

Don't even consider Caron as an option! Confrontational therapy is proven not to work! ... If I could I would buy it and shut it down. Again, DON'T EVEN CONSIDER IT. There are tons of great treatment ...

I greatly enjoyed most the aspects about the facility. however, they could have used more holistic offerings and exercise opportunities.

LSK

Consistency was a great attribute of the program. However, I did not enjoy the weekend programs.

Heywood

Make sure you have enough money to allow your loved one to finish the program. As soon as the money stops coming in they will put them out on the streets. I do not recommend this facility.

Areas of Focus
Drugs & Alcohol Treatment

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.

Gambling

Caron Renaissance recognizes that other addictions, such as gambling, may coexist with a chemical dependency and, if left undiagnosed and untreated, leaves an individual at high risk for chronic relapse. These coexisting addictions interact, reinforce and fuse; this process is referred to as Addiction Interaction Disorder (AID). The best treatment approach for individuals suffering from AID is to focus on the combination of addictions.
