Medical Services

Our physicians bring years of dedicated experience to treating addiction and mental health. Integrating the best and most effective medical treatments and approaches enables us to create treatment plans offering healing for body, mind, and spirit.

Medication-assisted treatment

Our therapeutic goal at Caron Treatment Centers is long-term sobriety. To achieve that goal, we use a multidisciplinary approach to address the co-occurring disorders often found with substance use. When appropriate, MAT is used as part of a comprehensive treatment and recovery plan.

Of the available FDA-approved MAT strategies, Caron utilizes naltrexone extended release (XR) or buprenorphine maintenance. Through a diligent and thoughtful process, Caron’s medical and clinical professionals chose naltrexone XR as a primary choice because it is a non-mood altering opioid receptor antagonist with no euphoric effect, no withdrawal syndrome, and no abuse or overdose potential.

Additionally, patients who relapse while taking Naltrexone XR would not be in imminent danger of respiratory arrest. To increase compliance, we administer it as a monthly injection. Learn more.

Neurofeedback Therapy

As part of an integrated treatment plan, neurofeedback therapy is used at Caron to reinforce healthy brain function in patients who struggle with addiction and co-occurring disorders including anxiety, depression, and attention disorders such as ADHD. The therapy, also called EEG biofeedback, aims to bring overactive or underactive brain activity into healthy ranges.

Neurofeedback begins with a non-invasive electroencephalography (EEG) brain-mapping session to provide a baseline assessment of brain function. At Caron, we use an advanced method involving sophisticated statistical analyses, known as quantitative EEG (QEEG), to determine whether a patient's brainwave patterns reflect healthy or abnormal function. The data is then used to identify brain dysfunction relevant to the patient’s condition. That data allows us to develop a personalized neurofeedback training plan, typically consisting of 10 to 20 or more one-hour sessions, depending on the patient's length of stay.

Pharmacogenomics

Many of our clients come to us using medications for depression, anxiety, and similar diagnoses that do not work for them. To ensure that they receive medication that will be effective and cause the fewest side effects, we use pharmacogenomics testing. This genetic testing technique requires only a saliva swab, which is sent to a laboratory for testing.
