I believe Caron is a very good facility for some people. I do believe they are considered one of the best based on past experiences, ratings, reviews. I do not think that they are the best now ,by any means. My loved one arrived in a very vulnerable and scary place. The first issue that really threw him/us was that he was assigned a room, counselor, hall ,and my LO was becoming acclimated and then suddenly, they said they had put him in the wrong place and he was moved. Not a great start for an addict looking for some stability and a very significant sign of lack of communication and organization. The facility itself is very nice and set in a pretty area of PA, definitely conducive to peace and quiet. I liked the family seminar we went to on one of our Sunday visitations...very informative and helpful. The greatest downfall for all of us was that my LO had a very pleasant counselor certainly, but very new and that just doesn\'t cut it when you\'re paying almost $40,000 for a 28 day stay. No one at this facility should be a new counselor and if they\'re new to that facility, they need to shadow someone for at least a month in order to understands the workings of the place. This person was very, very \"green\" and it showed in everything he/she did.In fairness, I don\'t believe my loved one went there with a true burning desire to get well, which certainly affects the experience, however I do feel that with excellent counseling and personalized attention, he may have had a better chance at recovery. They recommend their extended stay program to everyone which is to the tune of $45,000 and at the time my LO was there, they took little to no insurance. I just felt that the price and the quality of the product were not commensurate at all.
