About Serenity House Treatment Center
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.
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.
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.
