Caron's Ultra High End Ocean Drive Wins Key Federal NIMBY Ruling | Print |  E-mail
Addiction Treatment Industry Newswire

05/10/2012 -ATIN- Ocean Drive, the ultra high end ocean side Florida addiction treatment, drug rehab and alcohol rehab venture started last year by venerable Caron of Pennsylvania, has won a major court victory that has cleared the way for clients to move into the two Delray Beach luxury homes purchased as the housing element of the Florida Model operation, according to Caron executive Andy Rothermel. Formerly Caron CFO, Rothermel has been sent to Florida by Caron CEO Doug Tieman to shepherd key Florida initiatives currently underway at the non-profit. In addition to Ocean Drive, a super high end $120K-for-60-days program with about 15 beds, Caron recently purchased Hanley Center in a deal where basically Caron paid nothing for Hanley, agreeing to pump resources and management know-how into the long time struggling Palm Beach center, which was never able to make a go of it after its 2004 divorce from Hazelden. Ironically, the opening of Hanley - in a 1980s deal between Jack Hanley, a former Monsanto CEO who is one of the nation's most prodigious addictions philanthropists, and Hazelden - was handled by Tieman in his first major accomplishment as a treatment executive. Now Teiman is once again overseeing Hanley, this time in a turnaround situation. With Ocean Drive, Caron has won preliminary injunctive relief from a federal judge, based mainly on the Federal Fair Housing Act, with the judge making it clear the court is likely to strike down a series of Delray Beach efforts to impede the opening of Ocean Drive. Rothermel says that Ocean Drive has Ocean Drive's Clinical Facility in Boca Ratonbeen functioning since late last year, with clients living at Caron's Renaissance treatment operation in Boca Raton and getting a price break on the $120K cost until they moved into the luxury housing. "Ocean Drive is a program for highly successful individuals, not really trust fund types or celebrities, "says Rothermel, adding that Ocean Drive seeks to bring this class of recovering addict together in an effort to meet the unique needs of that particular recovering demographic. Rothermel says a large building has been purchased directly adjacent existing clinical space that Caron purchased years ago in Boca Raton. In total, the clinical Caron now has well over 30,000 sf of clinical space for its various Florida Model operations.

SUICIDE AT CARON OCEAN DRIVE
written by John Walker, July 13, 2017
A Hollywood executive hung himself inside Caron Ocean Drive on Seaspray. If someone can commit suicide under sixty thousand dollar a month oversight, Caron Ocean Drive needs to be federally investigated. Don't believe, read the guy's tragic story --> http://thecoastalstar.com/prof...-and-death

Caron Renaissance is a horrible and abusive place and I hope everyone makes life more difficult for them.

Strange: Treatment didn't post my last comment. I thought you wanted to "start a debate".

Let me repeat what I wrote:

Since Caron posted security thugs outside it's Seaspray Avenue facility and hand-delivered threatening, pseudo-legal letters to residents who posted protest signs in their yards, opposition to Caron has become nearly unanimous in Delray. Delray residents now see Caron as a rogue non-profit business invading Delray's single-family neighborhoods for financial gain.

Judges will decree this and judges will decree that, but in the end this issue will be resolved in the political arena not in court.

Whatever the Federal Court may decree, popular opposition to Caron in Delray has only deepened. A week ago, Caron hand-delivered threatening letters to residents who showed protest signs and stationed security thugs at one of their facilities to terrorise them. Delray residents are outraged that their common sense opposition to seeing a big-footprint business invade a single-family residential neighborhood is being construed as bigotry and that Caron has stooped to such shameless tactics.
