Caron Foundation values and nurtures the family’s healing in the process recovery just as much as the patient’s. They believe that the family is the patient and the patient is the family and conduct parent support groups at Kolbe Academy so that they understand the nature and consequences of addiction; develop new, healthy ways to manage anxiety; learn how to grow together in unity; and pursue personal healing and recovery.
Our treatment philosophy is grounded in the belief that addiction is a three-fold illness that affects individuals physically, mentally, and spiritually. Most, if not all, of our patients, have been affected in these ways, and we have, therefore, developed programming that addresses each of these important aspects of life. Additionally, and because each patient’s needs can differ, we formulate individualized treatment plans for all patients so that they are able to receive the specific interventions they need to reach their treatment goals.
These plans, which are devised by our staff in collaboration with each patient, detail the specific self-exploration activities, exercises, relaxation techniques, and other methods of care that will help the men and women of Huntington Creek Recovery Center acquire the skills and confidence needed to abstain from the abuse of substances once and for all.
If you or someone you care about could benefit from the type of transformative care that only Huntington Creek Recovery Center can offer, feel free to contact our center today. Our staff is happy to discuss our admissions process, detox services, and residential treatment right over the phone. We can also tell you how we can help you or an important person in your life overcome an addiction to substances via our exemplary programming.
In choosing Huntington Creek Recovery Center as the place to begin life anew, you or your loved one will realize that a brighter, sober life is possible.

After the tragic death by fentanyl poisoning in August 2016 of their 23-year-old son and brother, Ben, the Miller family of Bethlehem has sought to speak up and raise awareness to the dangers of opioid use, to destigmatize substance use disorder, and remove the barriers so that sufferers and their families receive help and support. The inability to speak up for himself resulted in Ben succumbing to peer pressure, leading to recreational drug use. After being prescribed a generous opioid prescription for oral surgery, Ben became addicted. Ben battled substance use disorder more than eight arduous years, and attempted to overcome it through nine inpatient rehab treatments and a spiritual awakening through Alcoholics Anonymous. While Ben’s life was cut short, his legacy will live on by providing hope and resources to many in need. Speak Up for Ben works to bring this mission alive. SPEAK Up for Ben has begun a scholarship at Kolbe Academy in Ben’s memory.
