About Serenity House Treatment Center

Philisophy

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.

Specialization

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.

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.

ABOUT SERENITY HOUSE TREATMENT CENTER

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. Detox is not available.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

The treatment process is heavily based on the 12-step program. The facility uses trauma-informed treatment practices to address trauma-related conditions.

The staff focuses 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. The center is one of 47 (52.8 percent) of Alaska treatment facilities to offer IOP. 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 disorders such as depression, anxiety, and trauma. Only 47.2 percent of the facilities in the state support treatment for co-occurring disorders.

Across all programs, Serenity House encourages family involvement and aftercare. Aftercare services are generally managed through local Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings and other community resources.

    Didn't even want to leave after a couple of months of being there. The community is so close together in fighting addiction and the 12 step meetings make you feel at home. Wish I would've stayed the whole recommended duration. The staff is amazing as well, if you have any problems they have no problem doing whatever it takes to help you to give you the best chance you can get
