Serene Center

Serene Center facilities are warm, inviting and secure. The 24 hour staff is trained and respectful, and is accustomed to the special needs of early recovery alcoholics and early recovery addicts. The Members are a fellowship welcoming all newcomers with open arms. The unique design of Serene Center creates tremendous opportunity for the recovering alcoholic and addict who is committed to a healthy sober lifestyle.


The struggle with substance abuse, depression, anxiety, relationships, anger and guilt are difficult. Assistance is available through guided therapeutic approaches and cognitive behavioral therapy performed at a certified Serene Center counseling office.

The goal of therapy is to translate the patient's challenges into a comprehensible and workable whole. The patient and therapist are able to work together to build clarity, guidance and problem solving skills in order to permanently change behaviors and thinking processes.

Counseling benefits the alcoholic and addict as well as the family of the alcholoic and addict. The family is a critical part of the recovery process. Often family members also benefit from counseling to deal with their own depression, anxiety and guilt.

Counseling is conducted as a private session, or as a family conjoin session. Sessions are always confidential.

Serene Center counseling services are pending certification by the California Alcohol & Drug Programs and are staffed by certified Alcohol and Drug Counselors.
