Residential for Women Phase I
Serenity Hills Life Center offers a well-rounded residential treatment program for women in our Orchard House, designed to meet their unique needs, from early recovery, to aftercare planning. Using comprehensive treatment through the integration of clinical, medical, psychological and holistic practices. Each phase of the continuum of care teaches women to reflect on their decisions, change destructive patterns, learn new skills, find serenity, become loving & responsible parents, begin to love themselves again, and learn to live & enjoy life sober.
Residential for Women Phase II
Some individuals need extended residential treatment. Because Serenity Hills Life Center is person-centered, individuals who need longer care can receive it through our next level of care, also provided at the Orchard House. The individuals involved in our extended residential program learn how to take personal responsibility for their actions, and to identify relapse before it occurs.
Serenity Hills Life Center’s Outpatient service is available to individuals who are stable, living in a supportive environment, and are at low risk to relapse. Our outpatient program offers group & individual counseling. We address the same issues as in residential treatment, to empower the individual with skills to stay in recovery.
Family & Support
At Serenity Hills Life Center, the family when possible, is a part of treatment. We nurture and value the family and their healing process as much as the client. We involve families throughout the treatment process. As a part of this program, we will focus on the perspectives of everyone involved because the client often is not the only one that needs healing. Our family programs help loved ones cope with the collateral effects of addiction, as well as understand the disease and the healing process. Helping families grow in unity, and pursue personal healing & recovery, is our goal.
Serenity Hills Life Center’s Mothers Program was developed from the gap of services needed for pregnant women, postpartum depression, and mothers of minor children. The addiction crisis has devastated families across West Virginia and beyond. Some of the most affected & vulnerable are the children & babies born to mothers suffering from substance use issues.
Sober Living House
The Apple Blossom Cottage is our premiere Sober Living House that serves up to 12 residents. This house is only 12 years old. It is a beautiful brick home with a gazebo and a large deck on over twenty acres of land that overlooks the Ohio River. The cottage boasts of upstairs & downstairs kitchens, fireplaces, and laundry rooms, along with three full baths.
Peer Support Workers are individuals who have been successful in the recovery process for more than two years. Clients who receive peer support, report an overall increase in their quality of life. Peer support has been proven to be an evidence-based practice. Serenity Hills Life Center utilizes Certified Peer Specialists who have lived & experienced substance use and are now trained to help others in need. Some of the tasks performed by the Peer Specialist may include assisting others in articulating their goals for recovery, learning & practicing new skills, helping to monitor their progress, supporting clients in their treatment, modeling effective coping techniques, and teaching self-help strategies. Each client is assigned a Peer Specialist that will continue with them through their treatment and aftercare. They stay engaged until the client meets their goals, or until their support is no longer required.
