Serenity House has been designed to feel like a home, not cold and institutional. Serenity House offers a detox center and residential treatment center they also offers outpatient treatment and prevention services to children 5-17. Serenity House is located at Abilene, Texas.

Serenity House Focus:

Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.

Alcoholism

The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person’s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Rehab Services:

Opioid Dependence Treatment

Opioids are any drugs based on the chemical composition of opium. An opiate is a synthetic (man-made) version of an opioid, also known as a narcotic. Opiate pain medications include prescription painkillers, like Oxycodone, OxyContin, and Percocet. Other opioids include morphine, codeine, hydrocodone, buprenorphine, methadone, and heroin. Dependence or addiction to opioids is treated in a similar fashion to other drug and alcohol addictions, with an eye towards helping the body detox safely before other treatment commences.

Buprenorphine Detox and Treatment

For opiate detoxification, patients are given buprenorphine, a drug that substitutes for opoids and prevents withdrawal. The patient is then gradually weened off of buprenorphine. Burprenorphine is a partial agonist, meaning that it can interfere with withdrawal symptoms without producing the same side effects of the opiate it is replacing. The effects of the drug increase with the dosage, but only to a certain degree. Once this “ceiling” is reached, an increase in dosage does not increase the effects, which reduces the risk of abuse.

What does Serenity House offer?

Medically Assisted Detox

Drug and alcohol addiction often takes a heavy toll on one’s body. Over time, a physical dependence can develop, meaning the body physiologically needs the substance to function. Detox is the process of removing drugs and/or alcohol from the body, a process that can be lethal if mismanaged. Medical detox is done by licensed medical professionals who monitor vital signs and keep you safe, healthy, and as comfortable as possible as you go through detox and withdrawal.

24 Hour Clinical Care

At certain points in the recovery process, it’s important to have support available 24/7. 24-hour clinical care offers a safe environment in which to recover from drug or alcohol addiction in peace, knowing medical detox and other treatment will happen with professionals on hand.

Outpatient (OP)

​Outpatient treatment is a convenient, affordable treatment option that allows the patient to enjoy many of the resources offered in residential treatment without leaving their family, job, etc. Outpatient care includes individual and group counseling as well as lectures and group processing. The frequency of these sessions is reduced from the more intense residential treatment schedule.

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

Residential treatment programs are those that offer housing and meals in addition to substance abuse treatment. Rehab facilities that offer residential treatment allow patients to focus solely on recovery, in an environment totally separate from their lives. Some rehab centers specialize in short-term residential treatment (a few days to a week or two), while others solely provide treatment on a long-term basis (several weeks to months). Some offer both, and tailor treatment to the patient's individual requirements.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Certain drug and alcohol rehab centers have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person’s specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.

12-Step

12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Family Program

Since addiction does not just affect an individual, but the whole family, recovery education is also offered weekly for family members to learn about the disease of addiction and the essentials of true recovery. Families learn about the role that they can play in their loved one’s recovery and gain insights into what their loved one’s recovery journey looks like. Then, in family counseling, they have an opportunity to process these discoveries, along with their own personal feelings and experiences.

Aftercare Support

Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn’t spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. Their aftercare program gives the patient the ongoing recovery support the patient need to stay clean and sober for the long haul. These meetings go far beyond a regular twelve-step meeting. Their purpose is to continue to equip the patient, monitor his/her progress, and encourage her/him long-term success. Aftercare focuses on relapse prevention and life skills that help you practice effective self-care and navigate treacherous and tempting situations. There are weekly aftercare meetings held in several locations throughout Texas because they have clients from all over the state.

Therapies Offered:

Holistic Therapy

Rather than focusing solely on addiction, holistic therapy facilities treat patients in terms of their whole being. Holistic therapy is about more than just addiction and sobriety – it addresses the person’s life in its entirety, including career, physical, familial, and spiritual aspects.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a widely used therapeutic approach that focuses on practical results, achieved through cognitive restructuring and behavior modification. In large, nationwide studies, Cognitive behavioral therapy has been proven more effective for treating substance abuse disorders than the other leading therapies. Cognitive behavioral therapy has a two-fold focus on correcting flawed patterns of thinking that lead to undesirable behavior and in unlearning bad habits and behaviors and replacing them with healthier behavior. Patients and counselors share the load for treatment under this model, making the patient largely responsible for the success of his/her own treatment.

Individual Therapy

Recovery from drug and alcohol addiction is one of the greatest gifts a person can receive, but the road to that recovery can be a difficult, emotionally turbulent process as you confront the deepest roots of addiction. This is why every patient at Serenity House spends regular, one-on-one time with an experienced, licensed drug and alcohol counselor. Individual recovery counseling is one of the keys to successful recovery. It is where the rubber meets the road for a patient, and they receive the support and encouragement they need to take steps towards recovery.

Group Therapy

At Serenity House, they know that no one should walk the difficult road to recovery alone. For this reason, each patient participates in daily group addiction counseling sessions. Each patient is unique with unique challenges to recovery, but many of their patients are encouraged to discover that other people can relate to their challenges and have been or are in a similar place. Group counseling is an opportunity for patients to share their deepest struggles and challenges, confront blocks to recovery, personalize information they have received during daily lectures, and provide and receive support along with their fellow patients.

Experiential Therapy

Experiential therapy is a form of therapy in which clients are encouraged to surface and work through subconscious issues by engaging in real-time experiences. Experiential therapy departs from traditional “talk therapy” by involving the body, and having clients engage in activities, movements, and physical and emotional expression. This can involve role-play or using props (which can include other people). Experiential therapy can help people process trauma, memories, and emotion quickly, deeply, and in a lasting fashion, leading to substantial and impactful healing.

Nutrition Therapy

Nutrition therapy, aka medical nutrition therapy (MNT), is a way of treating physical, emotional, and medical conditions through diet. Specific dietary plans are designed by professional nutritionists or registered dietitians, and patients follow them in order to positively affect their physical and mental health.
