Serenity Rehab Philosophy
Serenity Rehab provides a variety of treatment options such as SMART recovery, which takes a scientific and secular approach to treatment and incorporates behavioral techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Enhancement Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. Serenity also offers counseling in communication, taking responsibility, overcoming “crooked” thinking, and life skills training.
Areas of Specialization
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.
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.
Though not all rehab facilities offer “medical detoxification,” all people with an addiction to drugs or alcohol will experience intense physical and emotional changes and discomfort as their bodies react to withdrawal of the addictive substance. Many people use the term “detox” to refer to the period of time (ranging from a few days to a week) when the body is reacting to an addict’s decision to stop using.
Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
I came into this program expecting to just go through it without a problem and a core. But when I started this program I started to realize that this program will change me if I put the steps into action. So I admitted the problems I had and decided it was time for me to change my future because if history repeats itself my future was not going to be okay. The life I have been living is not positive and it will not get me anywhere. These steps helped me learn to grow up because I’m done with this addictive behavior. Through the help of God I am willing to stop using and start being the man that I was put on this Earth to be. Through God I will be able to overcome the struggles. By keeping a clean house I will be able to stay sober, by helping out the community I will be able to keep my mind off of the things that would make me relapse and to keep myself busy so that I don’t go down that wrong path I’ve been choosing. I feel like my mind has changed and I am finally ready live in real sober happiness in which the drugs and alcohol had given me. These steps have changed me for the best and I feel if you try your hardest to follow these steps your life and sobriety can be changed and achieved. Just like what I have accomplished from this program changed my life, why don’t you let it change yours also.- Noah M.
When I came to Serenity Point Recovery I was a broken man. Failed several times at recovery. After 23 years of trying 12 Step programs and many rehabs. I still could not understand why I kept using. I decided when I came here to try something outside of my comfort zone. This program has changed my life. It has helped me become comfortable with myself for the first time in a long time. Going through ethics has really helped me understand my wrongs and how they hurt myself and other people. It has allowed me to finally let go of things I have done in my life that have affected all my life. This course also gave me a better understanding of the 12 Steps. With both I feel that I have a good chance to stay clean and sober today. Out of the several rehab programs I have been to this is the best I have learned more about myself and recovery here than I have anywhere else. I would suggest to anyone here give yourself a break and the time for the fog to clear and let this work.- Michael P.
After treatment through Serenity I feel like I am more in control of my life. From the things I’ve learned I realize that fate or luck have very little to do with my destiny. Even though some people are fortunate to have blessing to help get them farther in life faster, if I continue to always do the next right thing there isn’t anything out of reach. I am capable to pursue anything in life I desire. People are naturally good but chose to make poor decisions that affect all areas in their life. this in mind, I can now move forward and remember that I am small compared to the universe but every action I make a difference. I want to live and work for the greater good in my legacy and my past will remind me, not define me.- Jacqueline W.
Before I took the Communication Course at Serenity Rehab I always believed I had to use some sort of substance to have fun in life. I’ve always had a problem with doing nothing. Now, once I’ve completed this portion of the program I feel more relaxed, I’m more outgoing, I’m happy and I’m content with just hanging out or doing nothing.- Jacob F.
Through treatment at Serenity Rehab, I learned a lot about myself and my beliefs during this Red Road to wellbriety study. It really messed with my core beliefs and values. I do believe in a higher power and that the higher power wants a personal relationship with everyone. I believe that many world religions teach the ideals of the positive warrior and love based thought system. The idea that living this way brings harmony to our personal and family lives, our community and nation. I believe in the idea that all things grow and come full circle. I have seen many of the teaching come true in my past due to my actions, both positive and negative. I look forward to returning home and implementing these principles in my daily life.- Chris H.
