Facility Highlights

  • Small Groups
  • Multiple individual sessions per week
  • Addiction and Mental Health counselor assignments


  • Creative Arts Therapy

    Writing, making art or engaging in theater can be deeply therapeutic for people working to recover from addiction. Many facilities offer one or several forms of creative arts therapy as a way to help patients learn to express their feelings in productive ways.
  • Family Program

    Research shows that the odds of successful, sustained recovery from addiction are far higher when family members and loved ones are involved in treatment. Drug and alcohol addiction often have genetic roots, whether related to substance abuse, mental illness or both. Family dynamics also play a role and, often, family members are the first to realize a loved one has developed an addiction. Also, it’s important for family members to understand and embrace the lifestyle changes that are required to sustain recovery.

Demoralizing. I witnessed people going into DTs and no one caring. Waking up after having been there for a few weeks with your belongings gone through. Homosexual relationships happening within your room while trying to sleep.
    This place is all about money and how much they can get. Buyer beware

    Didn’t work. My spouse drank again less than 24 hours after leaving this place. I’m devastated.
      Wow. Not what we expected at all. So disapointed . Most counselors have a limited background not doctors that's for sure.

      Serenity Acres gave me my life back. I couldn't have asked for a better place to help me in my struggle over addiction. The accomadations were a home like setting surrounded by a beautifully maintained natural environment. The staff were very professional and supportive. There were medical staff always present in case I had a medical issue. Group sessions were informative. Therapeutic sessions and private counseling were very beneficial. The meals provided each day were wholesome and tasty. The opportunity for supervised outings provided enjoyment and social interaction. This program gave me everything I expected and more to once again enjoy my life far better than before.
