Our program has been meticulously gone over time and time again. One thing that we’ve made a point of doing is that we didn’t just create our program, test it out, have it examined, and put it into use. We’ve been quite diligent in the addiction rehabilitation field of the nation. We’ve been aware of the fact that the addiction scene in the country had changed a lot. Drugs that were popular in the 1980s, 1990s, and even in the early 2000s are hardly in use today, and substances that didn’t even exist yet just a decade ago are now causing thousands upon thousands of death and hundreds of thousands of addictions all across the nation every single year.
Because of these observations, we’ve kept up with the times and modified our program regularly to be consistently using rehabilitation methods that work. Some of the old methods are highly outdated, and when rehabs do use them, it’s more out of convenience than it is out of concern for their clients. On the other hand, though, some of the new methods are highly ineffective too, and we avoid these. We only apply tested and proven addiction methods in our program as we recognize that the type of rehab model that is used on any given addict will make a big difference in his or her overall recovery experience.
Multiple Techniques in Use
The key to success at Serenity Rehabilitation is the use of various different techniques, tools, methodologies, and theories when it comes to rehabilitating our clients. We’ve endeavored to make this the backbone of our program, and we’ve taken the time to put together a comprehensive, open-ended, results-based rehab program that adjusts with the times as the old techniques become obsolete, and the new methods become workable. Some of our leading rehabilitation approaches are:
One of the biggest things that is totally lacking from the life of most drug and alcohol addicts when it comes to day to day living is necessary life skills. Because addiction robs people of so many different important and imperative abilities and responsibilities, many addicts cannot even begin to figure out life on their own even after their addiction is handled. One of the first programs we put our clients through after they complete detoxification is our Life Skills program. This program constitutes a few hours a day every single day, usually in the morning, in which our clients will take courses in how to be better parents, how to manage finances, how to keep and hold a job, how to be responsible, how to improve relationships with others, how to pick your friends, how to play a positive role in society, how to plan for the future, etc. All of these courses, (of which we have many), are all designed, constructed, tested, and found to be workable with the primary goal of taking a drug or alcohol addict and making him or her into a responsible, trained, and prepared adult who is ready to tackle life after rehab.
It would be safe to say that our counseling programs at Serenity Rehabilitation are the backbone of our program. Counseling is the key to beating addiction. Counseling and therapy both is going to be what gets down to the bottom of any individual’s addiction crisis and resolves it for them. With proper counseling, our clients can delve deep into their pasts and deep into their minds and find the underlying issues and root causes of their substance abuse habits. Then we can help them to examine those issues in plain sight, and get rid of them once and for all. At Serenity, we use:
- Motivational Enhancement Therapy, (MET)
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, (CBT)
- Motivational Interviewing
- Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, (REBT)
- SMART Recovery
We don’t just want to work on concrete manifestations of addiction and how one is going to live life after recovery. Building up life skills and eradicating key triggers and underlying issues is all fine and good and certainly does wonders for the creation of a sober lifestyle, but there is still another course of action that we feel needs to be taken. This is the path of spirituality. To actually become spiritually free and clean of drug and alcohol addiction once and for all, one has to get in touch with his or her spiritual side. It might sound strange at first, but a spiritual approach to treatment is the only rehabilitation technique that has been around for more than a century that is still in use today and is successful. When all of the cards are on the table, to achieve a lifetime of sobriety you have to be happy with you. We don’t pursue spiritually from a religious perspective, rather we coach and assist each one of our clients in actually finding themselves and orienting their lives to suit their own spiritual beliefs. This does wonders for them in recovery.
The Path Ahead
We know that achieving sobriety is no easy task. However, we’ve helped thousands of people who thought they would never see sobriety again achieve just that. Our goal and mission is to rehabilitate as many individuals as we can, and we reach that goal daily without highly specialized and well thought out program.
