Serenity House Treatment Center Philosophy

Counseling, education and participation in 12-Step recovery programs are the cornerstones of treatment at Serenity House. The residential rehab takes a
bio-psych-social approach to recovery from drug and alcohol addiction, and focuses on teaching and supporting the lifestyle changes necessary to live a life free of substance abuse and chemical dependency. The facility is committed to helping its clients restructure and reclaim their lives, so they can give up their addictive behaviors and build a solid foundation for life-long recovery.

Areas of Specialization

  • Aftercare Support
    Addiction recovery does not end with discharge after completing a rehab program. Facilities that offer aftercare planning and/or support work with patients to ensure sustainable recovery by helping to plan and make arrangements for transitional or sober living, help with housing, vocational counseling, etc.

  • 12-Step
    The term “12 Step Program” describes a way to recover from addiction that is based on the model developed by Alcoholics Anonymous. Many drug and alcohol treatment centers base their treatment on 12 steps – the first three of which are situational, the next four addressing the practical issues created by the addiction, followed by two steps focused on making amends for hurting others. Steps 10 and 11 involve a deeper examination of the previous steps and the final step is focused on helping others avoid and recover from addiction.

Serenity House Treatment Center, in operation by Central Peninsula Hospital (CPH), sits on 40 acres in Soldotna, Alaska, about 150 miles south of Anchorage. Offering counseling, education, and participation in the 12-Steps, the facility runs both residential and outpatient programs for adults.


With programs rooted in the 12-Steps, staff focus on addressing clients’ traumas and relationships. Ultimately, Serenity House aims to help adults make the lifestyle changes necessary for a long-term recovery, and uses a bio-psych-social and spiritual approach to do so.

Programming is residential, and successful graduates may receive additional follow-up assistance through enrolling in either the facility’s intensive outpatient (IOP) program or outpatient groups. Depending on their needs, IOP clients may attend nine or more hours of therapeutic programming each week, with groups that cover mindfulness, interpersonal skills, relapse prevention, and more. Special groups and programs are designed specifically to address co-occurring mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and trauma.

Across all programs, Serenity House encourages family involvement and aftercare, which is coordinated through local A.A. and N.A. meetings and other community resources.


Per the facility’s webpage, “certified mental health and/or chemical dependency counselors” provide individual and family counseling sessions weekly. A reviewer, in addition, referred to the counselors as “superb” and gave the highest possible rating for staff support.


Serenity House Treatment Center has 12 beds available and is co-ed. Although there are no private rooms, there’s a gym on-site.


Alumni reviews for Serenity House Treatment Center to date are limited, though positive. Alum Sean, for instance, described the facility as a “well rounded, 12-step based, program” that provided “excellent cohesion and transition to out-patient care.” In his survey, Sean indicated that he chose Serenity House for its solid reputation and found treatment to be well worth the cost. Reporting five stars for the treatment effectiveness, another program alum named Melanie shared her success story. “This place and these people gave me my life back and I am eternally grateful for them.”

Feedback is similarly positive on Facebook, where Serenity House only received five-star reviews from each of its 33 reviewers, indicating that the page may be maintained by the facility. Nevertheless, Facebook reviewers consistently reported life-changing experiences and an “amazing” staff. “This is one of the most life altering wonderful places I have ever been. If I didn't have to leave when I did, I would still live there to this day. I would recommend it to anybody suffering from active addiction of any sort,” alum Nichole wrote.


Serenity House Treatment Center accepts private insurance and Medicaid. For those in need, financial assistance may also be available.
