ABOUT SERENITY HOUSE TREATMENT CENTER
Serenity House Treatment Center, in operation by Central Peninsula Hospital (CPH), sits on 40 acres in Soldotna, Alaska, about 150 miles south of Anchorage. Offering counseling, education, and participation in the 12 Steps, the facility runs both residential and outpatient programs for adults. Detox is not available.
TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT
The treatment process is heavily based on the 12-step program. The facility uses trauma-informed treatment practices to address trauma-related conditions.
The staff focuses on addressing clients’ traumas and relationships. Ultimately, Serenity House aims to help adults make the lifestyle changes necessary for a long-term recovery, and uses a bio-psych-social and spiritual approach to do so.
Programming is residential, and successful graduates may receive additional follow-up assistance through enrolling in either the facility’s intensive outpatient (IOP) program or outpatient groups. The center is one of 47 (52.8 percent) of Alaska treatment facilities to offer IOP. Depending on their needs, IOP clients may attend nine or more hours of therapeutic programming each week, with groups that cover mindfulness, interpersonal skills, relapse prevention, and more.
Special groups and programs are designed specifically to address co-occurring mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, and trauma. Only 47.2 percent of the facilities in the state support treatment for co-occurring disorders.
Across all programs, Serenity House encourages family involvement and aftercare. Aftercare services are generally managed through local Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) meetings and other community resources.
