Formerly the Renaissance Institute of Palm Beach, Caron Renaissance was acquired by Caron in 2003. Many clients who complete primary care at Caron’s flagship facility in Pennsylvania are urged to head south to its Boca Raton, Florida location for extended care.
Renaissance pioneered the “Florida model” of treatment in which residents live in separate buildings from the clinical facility. While this sober living is ideal for extended care, Caron Renaissance also accepts clients seeking primary care. The supervised living community is designed to help clients learn to manage relationships, hold each other accountable and gain independence.
Residents live apartment-style in buildings with a swimming pool. Caron owns a multi-building apartment complex where only Caron Renaissance staff and clients are on the property. This allows for a variety of apartment style living arrangements allowing Caron Renaissance to help prepare residents for what their individual living arrangements may look like following treatment.
There are multiple programs at Caron Renaissance and for many, the minimum length of stay is 84 days. However, treatment and length of stay is individualized. Some residents may be required (or encouraged) to stay longer, depending on staff evaluations.
Treatment and Staff
Caron Renaissance is a co-ed facility with gender separate living environments, and some gender separate clinical programming. Renaissance does believe in and incorporates 12-step principles, but does not consider itself to be a 12-step based facility. Eating disorders, gambling, sex and trauma can be addressed concurrently with substance abuse here. Caron Renaissance also accepts clients with no concurrent substance use disorder diagnosis. Clients can have process addiction issues, or be in treatment for family of origin or trauma issues, with or without a substance use diagnosis.
Addiction medicine experts, nurse practitioners and psychiatrists are available 24/7. Renaissance also offers neurofeedback, which can be incorporated into clients’ treatment plans. A key modality at Caron Renaissance is family intensive treatment.
All outside communication is clinically determined. Family members may have a weekly phone call if the family requests it (beginning the first week of treatment), and it’s clinically appropriate. Families are strongly encouraged to participate through phone calls and a variety of on-site participation. Some clients are urged to do the Family Restructuring Program (FRP), which can be one week or longer. It facilitates psychodynamic theory, attachment disorder therapy, DBT, CBT, family systems treatment and experiential therapy.
For those who respond well to structure and no-nonsense discipline, Renaissance’s approach to recovery may succeed where gentler approaches have failed.
Renaissance does its best to set clients up for success, offering educational and vocational services to help them get back into school or the work force while in treatment.
Spirituality is a focus and steps are taken to encourage spiritual development. Patients can participate in services in the community as well.
Caron Renaissance offers treatment with spiritual and educational guidance in a supportive environment. Anyone looking for long-term extended care with solid family integration would do well to seek help through this network.
