Detox Services:

Psychotropic Medication:

Psychotropic medications (aka psychodynamic medication) are any medicines used specifically to affect and/or alter a patient's mind, emotions, and behaviors. Such psychiatric medicines are often used to change chemical levels in the brain that impact a person's mood and behavior. These medications include mood stabilizers, antidepressants, anti-ADHD drugs, and anti-anxiety medications.

Level of Care:

Holistic Treatment:

Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic treatment facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic treatment is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.

Intensive Outpatient:

Many people who struggle with addiction require and benefit from structured support as they pursue recovery. Intensive Outpatient Treatment may be right for individuals who neither lead stable lifestyles nor feel highly motivated to stop abusing substances. While participating in Intensive Outpatient Treatment, individuals can continue to maintain other commitments, such as work, education, and caring for family. This flexible model affords clients the autonomy they need to seek focused treatment without severely interrupting their lives. Intensive Outpatient Treatment is more aggressive than Primary Outpatient Treatment. This rehab program requires clients to spend 9.75 hours per week at CCS in Pennsylvania for eight weeks.


They recognize that not every client needs a life-overhaul in order to recover from addiction. Caron Counseling Service’s Primary Outpatient Treatment may be sufficient to help high-functioning individuals get back on track and lead addiction-free lives. Clients who are well suited for this level of care typically hold steady jobs, have supportive families and live in healthy home environments.

Individualized Treatment:

They believe that the most effective addiction treatment is customized and comprehensive. That’s why every client begins their recovery with a thorough evaluation process. Their addiction counselors learn as much as they can about the client’s health, psychosocial history, and addictive behaviors, as well as any co-occurring disorders they may have. Then, they provide a written, individualized treatment plan that addresses the client’s specific clinical needs. No two plans are the same.


12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Aftercare Support:

Because addiction is a chronic disease, relapse can happen. Though it may be frustrating and disappointing, addicts can regain long-term sobriety with professional help. They provide advanced relapse services to clients who have received treatment multiple times, maintained sobriety for a significant length of time, and are highly motivated to recover. Clients attend the program two hours a week for about eight weeks. Sessions take place in the evening so that clients can participate in treatment while maintaining other commitments. Support groups are integral to sober living. Caron Counseling Services urges alumni and families to join support groups after treatment so that they benefit from all the encouragement, accountability, and hope that these powerful networks have to offer.

Treatment Focus:

Substance Abuse:

Substance rehabs focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Opioid Addiction:

Opioid rehabs specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.


The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Dual Diagnosis:

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person's mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Therapy Programs:

Family Therapy:

They begin family counseling after clients have received their evaluations and treatment plans. Counseling sessions examine the addict’s clinical issues and problem areas in the family system, particularly sensitive issues that have never been addressed. This helps families move toward recovery. Family Counseling, facilitated by a licensed counselor, encourages the client’s family to identify, discuss and address issues related to the client’s addiction. Multi-family Counseling group counseling is a forum for multiple families to come together to share experiences and support each other. Multi-family group counseling not only encourages families, it helps them understand the nature and consequences of addiction.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy:

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy modality that focuses on the relationship between one's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. It is used to establish and allow for healthy responses to thoughts and feelings (instead of unhealthy responses, like using drugs or alcohol). CBT has been proven effective for recovering addicts of all kinds, and is used to strengthen a patient's own self-awareness and ability to self-regulate. CBT allows individuals to monitor their own emotional state, become more adept at communicating with others, and manage stress without needing to engage in substance abuse.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy:

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a modified form of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a treatment designed to help people understand and ultimately affect the relationship between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. DBT is often used for individuals who struggle with self-harm behaviors, such as self-mutilation (cutting) and suicidal thoughts, urges, or attempts. It has been proven clinically effective for those who struggle with out-of-control emotions and mental health illnesses like Borderline Personality Disorder.

Individual Therapy:

CCS clients who require individual counseling services are connected to dedicated addiction counselors. During one-on-one sessions, addiction counselors use the client’s evaluation and rehab plan to guide him or her through the process of exploring, verbalizing and working through addiction-related issues. The undivided attention that clients experience during individual counseling sessions equip them to achieve lasting sobriety and healing.

Trauma Therapy:

Trauma therapy addresses traumatic incidents from a client's past that are likely affecting their present-day experience. Trauma is often one of the primary triggers and potential causes of addiction, and can stem from child sexual abuse, domestic violence, having a parent with a mental illness, losing one or both parents at a young age, teenage or adult sexual assault, or any number of other factors. The purpose of trauma therapy is to allow a patient to process trauma and move through and past it, with the help of trained and compassionate mental health professionals.

Group Therapy:

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). Clients participate in 2-hour, weekly group therapy sessions for six weeks. These sessions help clients address the clinical problems outlined in their treatment plans in a safe, therapeutic environment where they can explore their own problems and encourage others to do the same. Through the program, CCS staff teach clients how to overcome self-defeating attitudes with new problem-solving and emotional skills.

Eating Disorder Treatment:

Eating disorders include anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, and dysfunctional eating patterns. Many psychologists and other mental health professionals consider eating disorders to be food addictions, meaning food is being used in an addictive way (similar to drug or alcohol addiction). Certain substance abuse treatment programs will have treatment for eating disorders as one of the services offered. An eating disorder may also present as a co-occuring disorder or dual diagnosis alongside drug and alcohol addiction.

Motivational Interviewing:

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a clinical approach to helping people with substance abuse issues and other conditions shift behavior in positive ways. It is more goal-oriented than traditional psychotherapy, as MI counselors directly attempt to get clients to consider making behavioral change (rather than wait for them to come to conclusions themselves). Its primary purpose is to resolve ambivalence and help clients become able to make healthy choices freely.

Life Skills:

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.
