  • Detoxification: Medical supervision and support during the withdrawal process.
  • Inpatient Treatment: Residential programs that provide intensive therapy and support in a structured environment.
  • Outpatient Treatment: Programs that allow individuals to live at home while attending therapy sessions.
  • Individual Therapy: One-on-one sessions with a licensed therapist.
  • Group Therapy: Therapy sessions conducted in a group setting, offering peer support.

What Types of Treatment Does Serenity Grove Offer?

At Serenity Grove, we offer a comprehensive range of treatment options to meet the diverse needs of our clients.

Detox Programs

Our detox programs are designed to offer safe and supportive medical detoxification to help individuals manage withdrawal symptoms effectively. We understand that detox is a critical first step in the recovery process. Our team of medical professionals provides round-the-clock supervision, ensuring that clients receive the care and support they need to safely navigate the detox phase. 

Our detox programs include:

  • Medical Monitoring: Continuous monitoring of vital signs and health status.
  • Medication Management: Use of medications to alleviate withdrawal symptoms and prevent complications.
  • Emotional Support: Counseling and support to help clients cope with the psychological aspects of withdrawal.

Inpatient Rehabilitation

Our inpatient rehabilitation program offers intensive residential treatment in a structured and supportive environment. Clients live on-site and receive 24/7 care, allowing them to focus entirely on their recovery. 

Key components of our inpatient rehab include:

  • Individualized Treatment Plans: Customized plans tailored to each client’s unique needs and circumstances.
  • Therapeutic Interventions: A variety of evidence-based therapies, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and more.
  • Peer Support: Group therapy sessions and community activities to build a supportive network of peers in recovery.
  • Aftercare Planning: Development of a comprehensive aftercare plan to ensure ongoing support and prevent relapse after discharge.

Outpatient Programs

Our outpatient programs offer flexible treatment options that allow clients to continue their daily responsibilities while receiving care. This is ideal for individuals who have completed inpatient treatment or for those whose addiction severity does not require residential care. 

Our outpatient services include:

  • Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP): A structured program providing intensive therapy and support while allowing clients to return home in the evenings.
  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): A less intensive option than PHP, offering several hours of therapy and support each week.
  • Standard Outpatient Program: Regular therapy sessions to maintain recovery progress and address ongoing issues.

Therapy Sessions

Therapy is a cornerstone of our treatment programs at Serenity Grove. We offer both individual and group therapy sessions to address the root causes of addiction and provide clients with the tools they need for lasting recovery.

  • Individual Therapy: One-on-one sessions with a licensed therapist to explore personal issues, develop coping strategies, and set recovery goals.
  • Group Therapy: Facilitated sessions where clients can share experiences, gain insights from others, and build a sense of community.
  • Family Therapy: Sessions involving family members to address dynamics that may contribute to addiction and to foster a supportive home environment.

Holistic Treatments

At Serenity Grove, we believe in treating the whole person, not just the addiction. Our holistic treatments are designed to support overall well-being and complement traditional therapies. 

These treatments include:

  • Yoga: Classes to promote physical health, reduce stress, and enhance mindfulness.
  • Meditation: Techniques to improve mental clarity, emotional balance, and relaxation.
  • Nutrition Counseling: Guidance on healthy eating habits to support physical recovery and overall health.
  • Art and Music Therapy: Creative outlets to express emotions, reduce stress, and foster self-discovery.
  • Exercise Programs: Physical activities to improve fitness, boost mood, and promote a healthy lifestyle.

  • Alcohol Addiction: Comprehensive treatment for alcohol dependence and abuse.
  • Opioid Addiction: Treatment for addiction to prescription painkillers, heroin, and other opioids.
