Serenity Oaks changed my life. I went in a terrified shell of a person. I left born again, a new man entirely. The team of therapist is amazing, they saved my life. Today I am clean and sober living a life beyond my wildest dreams. I owe the credit to the things I learned at Serenity Oaks. They give you all the tools you need to succeed in the real world.

The therapists here are top notch! The staff is excellent as well. The individual therapy sessions and the group sessions are equally valuable. If you’re open-minded and willing, this place can change your life! I cannot thank this place enough for giving me my life back. I was completely lost, empty, full of darkness and self-hatred. Today, I can say that I am the complete opposite of all of those things! I owe it all to Serenity Oaks Wellness Center and the hard work that I did there and the lessons and tools I learned and continue to practice in my daily life now.

At Serenity Oaks, our vision is to ADORN our patients to help facilitate personal growth and change towards a healthy balanced life in sobriety. Your addiction treatment program will incorporate clinical therapeutic support, medical supervision and care, and recreational or experiential therapy opportunities. 

In order to support our patients in ADORNing from their addiction, we believe that this is completed in 5 stages;

A- Accountability

During the initial stage of your addiction treatment program, patients will become accountable to their actions and consequences of addiction that has impacted their life or others around them .

D- Dreams, determination, disconnect, or direction

This second stage of addiction treatment is characterized by identifying the harmful habits that have been established during your addiction and beginning to identify how you would want to make changes for the future in sober living.

O- Opportunity

Patients are beginning to build and develop positive, healthy coping strategies while also receiving feedback from peers and staff about their recovery process to ensure that they are receiving optimal treatment progress. .

R- Relationships and Restoring

During this fourth phase of addiction treatment, patients will engage in family therapy sessions to help reconnect with their loved ones and rebuild trust within the relationship. Loved ones will develop skills for healthy communication, setting appropriate boundaries with one another, and holding each other accountable.

N- Navigate

This final phase of addiction treatment is characterized by supporting patients to navigate sober living options and the supports that will be needed as you transition into your home environment. Patients are paired with new clients to support as a mentor and support the new person in going through their treatment to help share their experience and knowledge of addiction recovery.

A Fresh Start


Serenity Oaks Wellness Center is an addiction treatment facility where your “drive to change” is met with our “passion to create an unparalleled experience in healing and strengthening the client’s core self”.

Drug Detox Programs in Clearwater 

Clearwater residents choose Serenity Oaks for their top choice in drug detox for the individualized care that is placed upon each patient that enters into our recovery center. We believe that each patient has their own unique story and circumstances that have led to your drug addiction and in order to heal from your root causes of addiction it requires a  personalized approach to addiction treatment that honors your experiences and emotions that are associated with your substance abuse. You are not seen as another number in our treatment center, you are treated with dignity and respect as you embark on the life changing journey of drug detox and addiction treatment.

What Is Detox Like?

The goal of a drug detox program is to support Clearwater residents in addressing the physical addiction to drugs by working to eliminate the harmful toxins and influences of drugs to help you gain a clear, stable mindset that will allow you the clarity to begin addressing the underlying causes of your drug addiction. As you move through your drug detox process, your body will be adjusting to functioning without the influences of drugs and alcohol. This often creates unpleasant or painful side effects known as drug withdrawal. Patients in our medical detox will have the ongoing supervision of our licensed nurses and physicians who specialize in supporting patients to have a safe, comfortable detox process that reduces the risk of any harmful side effects. As you begin to experience withdrawal symptoms, our medical team will provide you with the appropriate medical treatment and behavioral therapy that will help to maintain safety and stability within your physical and mental health.

What to Expect During Drug Detox?

Before beginning your drug detox program, you will first meet with one of our medical staff and addiction therapists who will get to know you and your history with substance abuse through initial assessments and intake questions that will provide our team with information about the length of time you have been engaging in substance abuse, the amount you use in one period of time, and how often you engage in drug abuse. This information, along with your history of mental health disorders and other pre-existing medical conditions, will best inform our team of the levels of care that you will require to safely and comfortably move through your drug detox program. Throughout your individualized detox programs, patients will have the ongoing support and medical supervision of our medical team who will provide medical treatments including medication assisted treatment, behavioral therapy, and holistic treatment that will assist in alleviating the severity of your withdrawal symptoms and help to further you in your journey through addiction recovery.
