Hi, I need help with this. My son was at Caron Pa and did wonderful there for there 31 day program. In June he went down to Caron Renaissance in FL for their 84 day program and it has been one issue after another there. It was not a facility originally recommended for him and I was reluctant about it because of their philosophy but he is 19 and made the decision to go there. I do know have any phone contact with him and can only write letters. I get a report from two different counselors twice a week. I hear that one week my son is doing well and making his appointments and the next week he is doing poorly again. He does not open up much in groups(never did since he was young) and complains of a lot of anxiety. They are telling me that they question his anxiety because he is fine when he is in the residence with his peers, but he also isn't talking about personal issues then either. I questioned the counselors on whether this might be the wrong program for him and they tell me that their program is the best in the nation. I question this because most weeks hen we have a scheduled call the counselors call a half hour late/early or not at all and then don't seem to think its a huge deal that they didn't notify us but I think that's just courtesy since they are usually in the middle of the day and we have to change our work schedules to be able to take the calls that last a half hour each.
I guess my question is if anyone has an opinion or experience with Caron Renaissance? And also is it possible that a treatment facility is not the right fit for someone? Please help quickly because we have to go down for family week next week and they want to do an intervention where they basically throw him out for the weekend, keep in mind we live in PA and FL is not familiar to him.
