ABOUT CARON COUNSELING SERVICES

Caron Counseling Services (CCS), located in Wyomissing, Penn., is one of multiple Caron treatment centers located throughout the country. CCS treats teens, young adults, and adults who are struggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders. The center’s services include standard outpatient care (OP), intensive outpatient treatment (IOP), aftercare programming, and a variety of specialized counseling groups, including programs for individuals struggling with gambling and sex addictions.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

All clients begin their treatment with a comprehensive evaluation that assesses their physical, psychiatric, and psychosocial health. To be eligible for admission, clients must be medically and psychologically stable. (CCS staff can help with arrangements for detox or treatment for acute medical disorders.) Counselors use their assessments to recommend the most appropriate level of care and create an individualized treatment plan. Before beginning treatment, adult clients are required to attend a program orientation, which is conducted over the course of four one-hour therapy sessions.

Caron Counseling Services’ IOP program offers the most aggressive level of care, requiring that clients attend 9.75 hours of treatment each week over the course of eight weeks. Programming is based on the 12-Steps and typically consists of group counseling, family counseling, multi-family counseling, and, in some cases, individual counseling. Standard outpatient care lasts six weeks and consists of a two-hour group therapy session each week. All individuals who complete IOP or OP treatment are eligible for the center’s aftercare program, which runs support groups for former clients and their families.

In addition to treating substance abuse, CCS offers specialized counseling for clients struggling with codependency, sex addiction, problem gambling, and relapse.

It was overall a positive, effective experience (I remained sober for 2.5 years after I left), but they failed to properly allow for my primary diagnosis (bipolar disorder). Food and nutrition. Not integrating care for those with MH diagnoses. Very few extracurricular activities offered.
