Serenity Light Recovery Philosophy
Serenity Light Recovery is a place to come to get renewed and refreshed to begin a journey in recovery. We provide excellent care in a loving, peaceful, and supportive environment without the institutional or hospital feel. We go above and beyond to make sure our clients’ stay with us is as comfortable as possible. They will be assigned to specific rooms and groups based on their needs and have the option to sign up for additional services for their wants and desires. We offer true individualized care to accommodate each client to the best of our ability.
Here at Serenity Light Recovery, we meet the clients where they are at in their addiction and guide them to the path of recovery. We help them see the light through the darkness, overcome their struggles, and achieve true freedom. Our ultimate goal is to improve their quality of life and empower them to make positive choices.
Areas of Specialization
Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment
These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
Animal therapy (also called animal-assisted therapy and pet therapy) supports recovery and emotional wellbeing by helping people develop relationships with animals. Animal therapy can be a one-time or ongoing experience.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
The focus of cognitive behavioral therapy (also called CBT) is helping people to understand the thoughts and emotions that underlie their addiction with the goal of learning new, healthier and more productive ways to understand and express themselves.
Drugs and alcohol have widespread effects throughout your body, including but not limited to the addiction and/or physical/psychological dependence that develops with substance abuse over time. Many organ systems are affected by addiction and will react to withdrawal. The term “medical detoxification” means that there is a trained and licensed medical professional onsite to monitor your vital signs and protect your physical and emotional health as your body goes through withdrawal.

ABOUT SERENITY LIGHT RECOVERY
Located in the community of Angleton, Teaxs, 40 miles south of Houston, Serenity Light Recovery offers a full continuum of treatment programs for adults struggling with chemical dependency and co-occurring mental health disorders. The facility offers residential treatment, an intensive outpatient program (IOP), and medical detoxification. The facility also provides specialized program tracks for military veterans, as well as Christian-based track.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
Before enrolling into a treatment program, clients undergo an initial assessment to determine an appropriate level of care and help clinicians develop an individualized plan of care. If detoxification is necessary, Serenity Light Recovery combines medications, such as Suboxone, Librium, and Lorazepam, with biofeedback sessions, and massage therapy to ease the discomfort of withdrawal. The detoxification program also includes educational classes and process groups. Once an individual completes detoxification, clinicians may encourage the client to transition into the facility’s residential program.
Residential treatment typically lasts between 30 to 35 days. To treat residents, Serenity Light Recovery blends 12-step facilitation, evidence-based treatments, and holistic approaches. During residential treatment, clients participate in individual, group, and family therapy. The facility also offers a three-day family program for loved ones. In addition, clients are introduced to the principles and practices of 12-Step. The facility also offers introduces residents to alternative self-help program, such as SMART Recovery and Celebrate Recovery.
Along with counseling and 12-step facilitation, Serenity Light Recovery integrates psychoeducational workshops, brain mapping and biofeedback sessions, and a Trigger Awareness Program to help prevent relapse. In addition, the facility offers a faith-based track, which incorporates Christian-based principles into 12-Step, as well as Bible study sessions into overall programming, while the specialized veterans program addresses issues of common among veterans, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
To treat co-occurring mental health disorders, the facility provides a range of treatments, such as pharmacological intervention, medication management, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) sessions for trauma. Along with traditional treatment methods, Serenity Light Recovery incorporates a range of holistic treatments, including yoga (in group or individual settings), mindful meditation, therapeutic massages, and personal training sessions.
Once a client completes residential care, the facility may encourage residents to transition into the facility’s intensive outpatient program.
