Review by Contributors


Founded in 1994, the non-profit agency Serenity House, Inc., operates four men’s and two women’s transitional living facilities for individuals struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. The long-term, 12-Step-based programs serve northeast Indiana with locations in Auburn and Warsaw. Detox services are not available at Serenity Houses. Of Indiana’s 305 treatment facilities, 26 (8.5 percent) offer long-term residential care.


Clients begin the admissions process to a Serenity House in Northeast Indiana with a written application and interview, according to the facility’s website. Applicants must be substance-free for three days before admission. Based solely on 12-step principles, the program lasts a minimum of nine months, although a stay between 12 to 18 months are recommended.

Within 30 days of admission, each client is asked to begin working with an Alcoholics or Narcotics Anonymous sponsor and to obtain a job. While residing at the house, residents attend at least one AA/NA meeting per day and expected to continually and actively work the steps. Eight AA and two NA meetings are hosted weekly at Serenity House’s headquarters, and clients are also encouraged to attend outside meetings.


According to the facility’s website, house managers are the organization’s main staff. There is currently no information available regarding staff credentials, however the one individual polled by to date rated the staff's level of training and experience five out of five stars.


Serenity House facilities offer varying accommodations. The organization’s website indicates that all residents share dorm-style rooms and are assigned house chores. They also share some common meals at the main location’s dining hall.

At the opening of Serenity’s most recent house in October 2015, Kosciusko County digital newspaper InkFree News reported a total capacity of 82 beds.

Most homes are within walking distance of shops, parks, and other community amenities. One of the men’s Auburn houses has a gazebo, playground, volleyball courts, and horseshoe pits set on seven acres.

WHAT ALUMNI SAY has received feedback for Serenity House, Inc., from one former client. They awarded the facility four or five out of five stars for all but one of 15 survey metrics, including exercise and leisure activities, the amount of family participation, and the likelihood they'd recommend the facility. Alum S.F. described the facility as “loving” and “open,” and the program as life-saving.

Likewise, reviews for multiple Serenity House locations on Google and Facebook were universally positive. Nine total ratings for the Auburn and Clarksville locations were all four or five out of five stars on Google.[1] "The very best halfway house in the area, to get clean and sober!" Jimmy B. wrote concerning the Clarksville location. Three locations together garnered an average rating of 4.6 out of five stars from 11 alumni on Facebook.[2] [3] [4]


Upon admission, clients must pay two weeks' rent and the cost of a drug screen kit. Afterward, rent is collected weekly. At the time of this writing, the Serenity House, Inc., website offers no information regarding the cost of its program, but does indicate that support is accepted from donors.
