Residential Assessment Program
Caron Texas' Residential Assessment Program offers an excellent opportunity to evaluate participants for an addiction in its early stages. It also provides appropriate placement for more complicated individuals.
Chemical dependency is a chronic, progressive and treatable disease with signs, symptoms and complications that progress through early, middle and late stages. In its early stage, chemical dependency is frequently difficult to identify. Many families are unsure of their loved one's diagnosis and corresponding treatment needs; however, on the other hand, in the later stages of addiction it is often difficult to decide the right placement. Caron Texas can assist with both needs utilizing its Residential Assessment Program.
The Residential Assessment Program is typically 5 days in length. Co-occurring medical and/or psychological issues may require an increased length of stay. The program is designed to rule in or rule out a diagnosis of chemical dependency or establish the appropriate level of care required. Collateral information from family, the referral source, and medical and psychological providers is gathered to more fully inform the assessment team.
At the conclusion of the assessment, the Caron Texas assessment team will meet with the patient and their family member(s) and referring professionals to review the findings of the assessment and recommendations for next steps. Phone conferences are also available. The assessment team will also aid in the development of a customized treatment plan if a chemical dependency diagnosis is established. If a referral is needed based on the level of care recommendations, Caron Texas' professionals will assist with referrals.
In cases where an intervention is needed, Caron Texas recommends enlisting the help of a professional interventionist for substance abuse interventions. Our team will provide contact information for professional interventionists, and will help secure an admission date for the Residential Assessment Program. While interventions can be traumatic experiences for the substance abuser as well as family and friends, our admissions specialists serve as a resource for family members or loved ones who need to perform an intervention.
