PROGRAMS

At Serenity Light Recovery, we are 12-step based, but understand that not one size fits all. Because of that, we allow our clients the option to choose their own path to recovery by offering supplemental education and support in the form of 12 Steps, Celebrate Recovery, and SMART Recovery.

12 Step Program

The 12-step program is a tried and true system, developed as guidelines, to help alcoholics and addicts overcome their addiction. The 12-steps were originally created by Alcoholics Anonymous, but have been adopted as the foundation for other 12-step programs, such as NA, CA, CMA, etc. These steps involve the admission that we are powerless over our addiction, recognition of a higher power as a source of strength, examination of our past mistakes and making amends for them, learning to live by a new code of ethics, and helping others who suffer from this disease.

Celebrate Recovery

A Christ centered recovery program that utilizes the actual words of Jesus and scripture rather than the psychological approach. Celebrate Recovery’s 8 Principles are similar to the 12 Steps but are solely based on Biblical teaching. This approach is designed to help one overcome the “hurts, habits and hang-ups” of their past addiction and lead the individual to live a life of sobriety through the loving power of Jesus Christ.

SMART Recovery

This program utilizes a scientific approach, as opposed to the spiritual approach of the 12 steps and Celebrate Recovery. SMART Recovery’s 4-Point program teaches behavior modification by increasing self-reliance, rather than focusing on powerlessness. The 4-Points include building and maintaining motivation, coping with urges, managing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and living a balanced life.

DUAL DIAGNOSIS

What is Dual Diagnosis?

Dual diagnosis (also known as Co-occurring disorders) indicates the presence of both a mental illness, in addition to a substance use disorder. Treating co-occurring disorders involves addressing both disorders at the same time. While many facilities specialize in treating either mental illness or substance use, it is now known that an integrated approach is crucial. Mental illness can be a contributing factor in relapse and therefore must be addressed, in order to achieve long term recovery. When individuals are not balanced, the risk of relapse increases greatly.

When individuals are not balanced, the risk of relapse increases greatly.
When someone is struggling with both variables of mental illness and addiction, it can be a challenge to identify what to treat first. Individuals who are dealing with mental health issues tend to self-medicate with drugs and alcohol, in order to cope with the symptoms of anxiety, depression, or other diagnoses. It is important to identify any medications, if needed, and integrate approaches to identify symptom management. During treatment at Serenity Light Recovery, our professional staff will assist you in assessing and evaluating symptoms, and provide the client with appropriate interventions to focus on the goal of stabilization.

There is often the misperception that once someone comes into treatment, they will be “cured.” However, the process of managing and maintaining stability is the overall goal.

Here at Serenity Light Recovery, we understand the importance of addressing issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and attention deficit issues. When treated at the same time as the addiction, risk factors for relapse are significantly reduced. Our program incorporates coping skills and techniques to manage both substance use disorder, as well as mental illness

Trigger Awareness™ Program

For addicts and alcoholics, temptations to use are inevitable. Serenity Light Recovery’s Trigger Awareness™ Program is one-of-a-kind and uniquely tailored to help our clients develop appropriate reactions when faced with everyday triggers. Triggers are barriers to staying sober, as they tend to set off cravings. It is important that, as addicts and alcoholics, we recognize what our triggers are, and how they affect us. Triggers can be caused by external stimuli, such as a color, smell, object, etc., as well as internal feelings, such as sadness, anger, and stress.

By building a strong awareness of one’s self and environment, our clients can address the impact that triggers have on their life and their sobriety, while processing through their feelings in a safe and clinically supervised environment. Through creative art expression, education, and group processing, our clients will take a look at various triggering obstacles, and discuss what they are feeling and why they see these objects, or feelings, as provoking. This provides a safe way to navigate past these emotions to gain awareness and self-control, by creating healthy coping skills for triggers.

This program is designed to be a healing and strengthening process, allowing each individual a safe and creative environment to work through and overcome the paralyzing mental and physical actions that come from substance abuse disorders.
