About Caron Bermuda

The impact of substance abuse remains one of the greatest challenges that Bermuda has ever faced. The effects of this problem on the health and safety of the community and the economy have been, and continue to be, of great concern to the people of Bermuda. Caron Bermuda is here to help. Without patient services, direct access to off-island quality residential treatment and on-island non-residential continuing care programs, Caron Bermuda is poised to help the people of Bermuda throughout the recovery process. We have expanded our clinical offerings with a focused approach on the treatment of our youth and their families in our earlier partnership with PRIDE in 2006 and our most recent relationship with Bermuda Youth Counseling Services (BYCS), with the development of an Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Programme (AIOP), established in 2011 . These relationships demonstrate our sincere commitment to public/private collaborations within our community, and the building of an enduring capacity into the future.
