Serenity Grove is what is colloquially known as a "rehab" facility for addiction to alcohol or other drugs of abuse.  Our team of physicians, nurses, therapists, counselors, and other clinicians provides medically managed withdrawal management, individual and group therapy, residential, and outpatient education and treatment programs for addictions and, when present, co-occuring mental health issues, often referred to as "dual-diagnosis treatment." We serve clients from Georgia and all over the southeast, the entire United States, Canada, and beyond.  Our attentive, experienced, and friendly staff is available to assist with all your travel arrangements. Our flagship facility is easily accessible from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Internation Airport.  For private plane arrivals, Serenity Grove is conveniently located only minutes from the well-appointed and historic Ben Epps Airport (KAHN).  Serenity Grove provides ground transportation from either airport by chauffeured private car.

Our primary residential rehab treatment facility is located in Athens, GA and is a discreet and private compound. We offer private single occupancy or semi-private double occupancy options, in addition to our standard accommodations, which are well appointed and comfortable for even the most discerning clients.


The mission of Serenity Grove is to provide the highest level of personalized care and treatment interventions to every client. While working with clients, the sincere concern, empathy, attentiveness and compassion of our dedicated team is self-evident. A high percentage of substance use disorders evolve or are exacerbated by self-medication or inadequately managed co-occurring diagnoses. Thorough comprehensive mental health screening, physical assessment, medication management, and consultation with our affiliated medical and psychotherapeutic specialists as indicated, ensure that any co-occurring medical or mental health diagnoses are managed in a timely and effective manner. Additionally, our team strives for every interaction with our clients, their families, and our peers to be conducted with respect and transparency. The environment at Serenity Grove is comfortable and discreet. The therapeutic community at Serenity Grove enjoys a welcoming, safe, and serene atmosphere that is conducive to change. A recovery journey that begins at Serenity Grove can be lasting and life changing for clients and their families.

The entire Serenity Grove team, from our medical, clinical and counseling professionals, to the attentive support staff, is unified in philosophy. Collectively, we believe that providing individualized treatment plans, evidence-based therapies, and unrivaled personal service are keys to commencement of our clients’ recovery journeys. Central to our process is utilization of the trans-theoretical model and comprehensive screening and assessment. We realize that one or more of three key indicators: desires, goals, and the clients’ stage of change can evolve frequently during the treatment process. Serenity Grove’s team of professionals optimizes our clients’ potential for success by adapting the individualized treatment regimen whenever indicated to address in a timely fashion clients’ present desires, goals, and stages of change.

The Goal 

The goal is to provide our clients with the therapies and tools to recover from the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of the ravages of addiction. We recognize that alcoholism and drug addiction is a progressive illness. Left untreated, the symptoms and consequences of substance use disorders, and co-occurring mental diagnoses most often only get worse.

Our serene and intimate residential and outpatient, dual-diagnosis programs, combined with our high staff-to-client ratio, enable us to provide personalized treatment programs that will most benefit our clients, based on their unique, individual needs. We are not a “one-size-fits-all” or “cookie-cutter” type of program. Our client-centric programs integrate social and experiential aspects of recovery by scheduling various activities that may include activities such as, nutritional counseling, yoga, tai chi, meditation, massage, recreational and exercise opportunities and other outdoor pursuits. When combined with the latest, most effective, evidence-based therapies and methods, these activities are structured in a way that contributes to each client’s goals, and learning how to live a full, rewarding life without alcohol or other drugs of abuse.
