Florida Woman Finds Lasting Recovery at Serenity Oaks
Addiction recovery is a long process for many people. It’s common to have a few setbacks along the way. For someone struggling to overcome a substance use disorder, that may not be very comforting. But knowing that lasting recovery often doesn’t happen on the first try, can help prepare people for the reality of the process. For one woman, success came after 10 long years of trying to break the cycle of dependence.
Comprehensive Addiction Treatment in Fort Lauderdale
A recently patient named Amy found sobriety at Serenity Oaks and was moved to write a 5-star review on Google about her experience.
“I can’t say enough phenomenal things about this place,” Amy wrote. Going through their program gave me my life back. I had lived in a fog for over a decade and felt like I had no hope. From the time I walked through the door, I was treated with respect and compassion by every staff member.”
At Serenity Oaks, we treat many different addictions involving both drugs and alcohol. The goal is to help clients clarify the source of their addiction, look at the habits and influences that led to their using drugs or alcohol as coping mechanisms, and find new healthier patterns and coping skills.
Treatment is customized according to the nature of the misused substance, including heroin, cocaine, marijuana, crystal meth, and prescription painkillers. Therapy is also offered for dual diagnosis, in which substance abuse is accompanied by an underlying mental health disorder. Many clients also come to us for poly-drug use, combining multiple substances at once.
The program takes a comprehensive approach to addiction treatment. Like many others, it integrates medical and behavioral modalities but adds life skills and recreational therapy to cover all of the client’s needs: physical, mental, emotional, and social health. Our treatment specialists know that dependence affects all aspects of a person’s life and therefore treatment must take a holistic approach.
For Amy, the most valuable element of Serenity Oaks was the treatment team she worked with.
Compassionate Staff, Comfortable Surroundings
“It is truly a team effort there,” Amy wrote. “From the therapists to all the behavioral techs, nurses, and everyone I encountered there, they all contributed to my recovery. Bella was my assigned therapist, but I had many others that always had their door open for me. Bella was wonderful and will always have a special place in my heart. Honestly, there are so many staff members there that I will never forget.”
“Team” truly describes the philosophy at Serenity Oaks Wellness. Here, clients and staff work together as one community. We walk each client’s journey together helping them build a fulfilling life free of chemical or alcoholic stimulation. In this judgment-free zone, clients can focus on their recovery and know that they have partners who are there to help them succeed.
Serenity Oaks’ physical location is a crucial part of the recovery process. Our center is located on 7.5 acres of naturally landscaped grounds, which creates an atmosphere of tranquility essential to recovery. Deluxe accommodations with comfortable amenities are not just pampering luxuries; they help clients relax and begin to feel positive about themselves allowing them to focus on their recovery and see that a sober life can be a happy one.
Best Choice for Addiction Treatment
For Amy, everything about Serenity Oaks Wellness was a positive experience.
“Don’t waste time trying to beat addiction on your own,” she urged. “Take advantage of this place. Take it from someone who was terrified and didn’t want to admit that I needed help, and trust them. You won’t regret it!”For more information on drug or alcohol addiction treatment, including related emotional or psychological disorders, visit Serenity Oaks Wellness Center or call (833) 720-0708 anytime 24/7.
