The decision to enter treatment for drug or alcohol addiction can be a difficult one; for many people, it’s a scary one. You don’t know what to expect, and you’re not sure you’re ready. Maybe you even tell yourself you don’t need the help. It’s hard to give up something that’s been such a big part of your life, even if it has done significant damage.
Anthony N. was scared when he entered Serenity Oaks Wellness Center, but it turned out to be one of his best decisions. The staff and even the other clients had such a powerful effect on him that he left a passionate 5-star review on Google.
“I feel as though this amazing group of people has saved my LIFE!!!!!” he wrote.
An “Amazing” Experience at Serenity Oaks
Anthony gave praise to our Fort Lauderdale drug rehab center.
“WOW!!! My experience at Serenity Oaks Wellness Center could not have been any more amazing,” he raved. “From the staff to the facility, everything was much more than I could have ever imagined.”
It was definitely not what he expected.
From Worry to Wellness
“I came in skeptical and worried,” he wrote. “Now I can honestly say when I was walking out the door, I didn’t want to leave!”
“They were warm and welcoming throughout this tough journey,” he recalled about the staff. “The clinical team was so understanding and helpful while guiding me towards my sobriety.”
“Team” is an important word at Serenity Oaks Wellness Center. The staff operates as a team, working together with clients as one community. They walk each client’s journey together, creating a peaceful, 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.
Graduates of the Serenity Oaks program often praise and thank the staff. Anthony went a little farther and offered enthusiastic words to the other clients in treatment with him.
Support from Others at Serenity Oaks
“The other clients in the facility were amazing!” he enthused. “I made friends that I now consider will always be family. It is a tight-knit group since they do not over-book the facility, leaving much more one-on-one time with staff and nursing as needed.”
Support from fellow clients can contribute significantly to success in treatment. It’s vital to be with others who understand what you are going through on a deep, personal level – as an addict and as someone in recovery. No one else can know exactly how you feel on your journey, but a fellow addict can come close. They’ve probably had many of the physical withdrawal effects you will experience, and they will understand how it feels to suddenly cope with life without the substances you thought were so necessary.
Anthony also benefited from Serenity Oaks’ physical environment, which is crucial in the recovery process. The facility 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 enable clients to focus on their recovery and see that the sober life can be a happy one.
Still, it was the people of Serenity Oaks Wellness Center that made the difference for Anthony.
“Going through the detox process was tough for me. But they stayed with me, made sure I felt safe, and never took their attention off my needs. THANK YOU ALL so much,” he concluded.
