Serenity Acres Philosophy
At Serenity Acres, treatment for drug and alcohol addiction involves balancing the mind, body and spirit. The residential rehab understands that every client is unique and strives to give its residents a personalized recovery experience at a reasonable price. Treatment plans are designed by the facility’s team of medical and addiction specialists, offering a broad range of effective therapeutic modalities, including gender-specific campuses, dual diagnosis care and holistic therapies. A non-institutional, family-style setting encourages clients to open up, explore their core issues and create a solid plan for life-long recovery.
Areas of Specialization
Creative Arts Therapy
Writing, making art or engaging in theater can be deeply therapeutic for people working to recover from addiction. Many facilities offer one or several forms of creative arts therapy as a way to help patients learn to express their feelings in productive ways.
Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.
Eating Disorder Treatment
Many mental health professionals view eating disorders (including anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder, along with other dysfunctional eating patterns) as a food addiction – in that food is used in ways other than as fuel or a source of pleasure. Some, but not all, addiction treatment programs include eating disorder treatment as part of the service menu. Also, an eating disorder may be a dual-diagnosis or a co-occurring disorder with drug or alcohol addiction.
Trauma & Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT)
Associative Awareness Therapy (AAT) uses the brain’s innate ability to adapt to change in a healing way, essentially “retraining” the brain to respond differently to familiar memories of trauma or pain.

I have genuinely been invested in a wholesome recovery and taking constructive action to bring about change. I’m also able and willing to feel and manage my thoughts and emotions. I have an overwhelming sense of hope and fulfillment.- Anonymous
The change in me is like night and day--physically, mentally, and spiritually. I am able to remember who I truly am and that I’m not the bad person I was before I got here. Serenity Acres helped me to strengthen my relationship with God and now I am in the best shape of my life. I’m confident and happy, which is something I haven’t been in years!- Alex D.
Serenity Acres has a very comprehensive approach. The dual diagnosis helped focus on emotional/cognitive development as well as addiction. It’s great that we get to do fun things that help us see that you can have fun being sober. I loved the holistic, spiritually based therapies. Also, the staff and environment are amazing. Who I Truly Am The change in me is like night and day--physically, mentally, and spiritually. I am able to remember who I truly am and that I’m not the bad person I was before I got here. Serenity Acres helped me to strengthen my relationship with God and now I am in the best shape of my life. I’m confident and happy, which is something I haven’t been in years! Best Chance at Recovery I went to a program that was primarily for wards of the state. That place pales in comparison. Serenity Acres was a better facility with more professional staff. There was also much easier access to counselors. I felt like I was treated as a client instead of a number.This place was much more suited for creating an environment that is going to give the best chance of recovery. Genuinely Happy This program was excellent! The staff seem genuinely happy, motivated, and excited to be here and to be able to steer the clients toward a better life. The yoga, acupuncture, and massage is such a great break in routine and I found that I really like the eastern medicine approach.- John B.
