West without Borders Presents Caron Foundation with Donation

For the 2012 West without Borders campaign, the headquarters team selected to support Caron Treatment Centers, a nationally recognized non-profit provider of alcohol and drug addiction treatment. With experience in treating co-occurring disorders, Caron offers comprehensive treatment programs for adolescents, young adult, adults and their families.  Its mission is to provide an enlightened, caring treatment community in which all those affected by alcoholism or drug addiction may begin a new life. Caron is based in Wernersville, Pa.

On December 4, 2012, West presented the foundation with a $50,000 check.

Said Chairman and CEO Don Morel, “Caron has positively impacted many lives, and West is proud that its employees have provided such a generous donation to this incredible organization.”

West’s funds will support Caron’s programs for adolescents, including:

          – Additional staff
          – Scholarship funding
          – Recreational equipment for the Wernersville facility

 

Now in its sixth decade, Caron offers a full spectrum of treatment programs. Caron’s proven expertise includes:

          – Residential, relapse and extended care for adolescents and adults
          – Outpatient treatment for adolescents and adults
          – Medical evaluation and detoxification
          – Family counseling and codependency treatment
          – Continuing care

 

The 2012 West without Borders fundraising campaign raised nearly $250,000 for organizations dedicated to caring for children in the many communities where West employees live and work.  Since its inception in 2004, West without Borders has raised more than $1,000,000 to help those in need around the world.
