According to Caron Texas Advisory Board Chair Robin Bagwell,
“Caron Cares is the fourth annual educational health conference offered as a community service by Caron Texas for parents, professionals and the public. The Friday, October 3rd conference highlights how addiction and recovery impact every area of our lives.
“Our theme this year is ‘Making the Connection.’ One individual may make the connection that changing her behavior can empower her to achieve her goals. Another individual may learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of substance abuse in his child.
“Caron Treatment Centers recently expanded its renowned Young Adult Male Program to Caron Texas. Many speakers will focus on specific topics for the families and professional caregivers of young adults 18-25. Highlights will include sessions such as, ‘Holding On and Letting Go: Healthy Boundaries for Parents of Teens and Young Adults’ and ‘Mindfulness as a Way of Living.’
“Caron relies on partnerships to bring Caron Cares to the community. Individual ticket sales and partnership opportunities are listed on the Caron Texas website to help underwrite this very important educational event. Continuing education credits will be offered.
