Addiction Treatment Program in California

Having been in existence for more than a quarter of a century, Serenity Knolls is immensely proud to have earned a reputation for being one of the most highly respected 12-step social model residential treatment centers in California. Thousands of our alumni are currently living fulfilling and productive lives today, and they are our most compelling testimonials and our greatest source of pride. Changing lives is our passion, and we place that goal at the center of all that we do.

Why Serenity Knolls Is Successful

In order to provide each man and woman who comes to us with every chance to successfully achieve a changed, fulfilled, and recovered life, we ensure that all Serenity Knolls residents benefit from the following program features and characteristics:

Compassionate staff members – When residents pass through our doors, they will receive a friendly and caring welcome by supportive staff members who understand just how much courage it takes to enter a substance abuse program to deal with an addiction and face the problem head-on. Many of our staff members went to Serenity Knolls to recover and pass on the gift of sobriety.

Thorough assessments– All residents in our addiction program are provided with a skilled, multidisciplinary assessment of their individual needs so that all of their concerns can be appropriately addressed throughout their time in our program.

Personalized treatment plans– Each resident will receive a customized treatment plan that is designed to address the areas of his or her life that have been affected by addiction. This includes taking into account the physical, emotional, familial, and occupational aspects of the resident’s life that need healing.

Knowledgeable and experienced treatment teams– Residents are provided with the services of a highly skilled and caring staff of treatment professionals who go above and beyond daily to ensure that the treatment they deliver results in an exceptional and fully transformative experience.

Comprehensive family program– A thorough family program has been created in order to help the loved ones of our residents receive emotional support, while increasing their understanding of the disease of addiction and learning how they can best be of assistance during their loved one’s recovery journey in our addiction treatment program.

Continuing care services– Continuing support, renewal, and fellowship is offered to all alumni through an aftercare program that hosts weekly sessions in both Marin County and San Francisco, California.

All of these aspects are incorporated into every facet of care that we offer here at Serenity Knolls in our addiction treatment program. We believe that people deserve to become the individuals that they truly wish to be, and at Serenity Knolls, we strive to help them make that wish a reality.

In order for us to help residents attain sobriety and an overall healthy life style, we offer specialized treatment that pertains to addictions and related issues. We have created a loving and supportive residential community where change and recovery can flourish.

Programs Included In Your Treatment

The residential addiction treatment program at Serenity Knolls is available to men and women, ages 18 and older, who are suffering from substance abuse and chemical dependency, as well as certain co-occurring disorders. The following features are included within this comprehensive 12-step residential treatment program:

Individual therapy occurs once a week with a licensed psychologist or a marriage and family therapist.

Individual counseling occurs on a daily basis and allows residents to check in with an experienced alcohol and drug counselor.

Group therapy is offered several times a week, giving residents an opportunity to discuss shared experiences, learn from one another, and give and receive support to and from their peers during treatment in our addiction program.

Couples and family counseling offers residents the opportunity to come together with their loved ones in a therapeutic environment and engage in sessions that are led by psychologists and marriage and family therapists. These counseling sessions can be scheduled upon request depending on the resident’s specific needs, as well as on his or her family’s proximity to Serenity Knolls.

Additionally, all residents who engage in programming at Serenity Knolls, located in California, have the immense benefit of being able to partake in our Weekend Family Program. As part of this program, residents and their loved ones can participate in both educational and process groups. Additionally, the Weekend Family Program is offered not only to current Serenity Knolls residents, but also to alumni of our program and their loved ones.

Furthermore, knowing that recovery does not simply end with the completion of a residential treatment program, we value the importance of offering an aftercare program so that the successes achieved while in residential programming can continue as individuals reintegrate back into their daily lives. One of the unique facets of our aftercare program is that any resident who has completed at least 30 days of residential treatment at Serenity Knolls can participate in the program for the rest of his or her life at absolutely no cost.

At Serenity Knolls in California, we strive to meet residents where they are at in their recovery journeys so that, during their time with us, they can benefit from receiving the most comprehensive and most customized care available. If you or a loved one is suffering from an addiction to drugs or alcohol and could benefit from treatment in an addiction program, please reach out to the knowledgeable staff at Serenity Knolls today.

My mental health suffered from my addiction and it was too much for me to deal with. With the help of my family, they admitted me to Serenity Knolls for co-occurring disorders treatment. This facility helped me tremendously.
