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.


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. IOP involves four treatment sessions per week and typically lasts eight weeks. The center also offers a year of aftercare recovery coaching to alumni who graduate from residential treatment.

Serenity Light Recovery, ironically, in my case, has an iconic phase called the "Phoenix Phase". It is a symbol of life, death and rebirth. I came here broken and I burst into flames, yet from my ashes I arose and was reborn. I was given hope when all was lost. I was given opportunity when there was none. I was given life when there was only death. I saw a beacon of light in the darkness, and from that light I saw freedom. I regained my innocence and I embraced my newfound freedom. I have been gifted with rebirth, opportunity, freedom from my addiction and serenity. Thank you Serenity Light
