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. I recommend this place to anyone who is suffering from the cunning, baffling, powerful disease called addiction.

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

Our knowledgeable and compassionate team will treat each client individually based on cross-disciplinary and evidence-based treatment for each individual’s unique treatment goals.

What is Alcohol Detox Like?

Substance abuse detox at the Serenity Oaks Florida treatment center takes place in a comfortable room, where you will have:

  • 24-hour oversight by registered nurses and doctors
  • A private bathroom
  • Your own TV with movie access
  • Healthy nutritious food
  • Holistic treatments for alcohol abuse like yoga or acupuncture
  • Therapy and counseling with dual diagnosis treatment if needed

Medications are also provided as needed to help keep you safe and comfortable and avoid serious alcohol withdrawal, with the option for a longer-term medication-assisted treatment plan for people who need to taper slowly off their drinking and/or other drugs to avoid serious medical issues like delirium tremens, cravings, and to prevent relapse.

What To Expect During Detox?

When you first come to Serenity Oaks for alcohol treatment, you will meet with experts who will assess your level of addiction and your overall mental and physical health. This will give our team the information we need to help choose appropriate substance abuse treatment that will keep you safe and healthy. We will recommend a treatment plan that suits your needs, and once you agree, you will move directly into inpatient treatment in our Florida detox center to begin the detox process. You may experience mild withdrawal symptoms but in our alcohol rehab in Margate, you will be provided with treatments and medications to help you avoid more serious symptoms like seizures or delirium tremens. Once detox is over, you will move into your next phase of rehabilitation.

How Long is Detox?

Every person’s withdrawal timeline is unique, with the length of detox depending on:

  • How long you have been drinking
  • How much you were drinking at each sitting
  • Your mental health and wellness
  • Your physical health at the time of entering your treatment plan

When you come to the Serenity Oaks alcohol and drug rehab center, expert addiction specialists and medical doctors will be able to tell you more about what to expect for your individual detox program after a medical and psychological screening. Most people will stay with their detox treatment provider for five to fourteen days for alcohol detox.

Symptoms of Alcohol Detox

Common symptoms of alcohol withdrawal include shakiness, nausea, vomiting, sweating, agitation, anxiety, and mood swings, along with strong cravings for alcohol. Even when mild, these symptoms can feel so distressing that you may find it impossible to resist relapsing if trying to detox on your own, so even if you have only been drinking a short while or believe you have a mild addiction, a stay in inpatient detox is recommended.

Alcohol withdrawal symptoms can also escalate to severe and life-threatening levels unpredictably, especially for those who have relapsed before, those with a severe addiction, those using multiple drugs and alcohol together, and those who have been drinking for a long time. Without treatment, you may experience seizures, and delirium tremens, with disordered brain activity, serious hallucinations, confusion, high fever, and even death. A medical detox in a Margate Florida facility with 24-hour monitoring will ensure you stay safe and healthy, getting through this necessary process as comfortably as possible.

Acute Detox

Acute detox for drugs and alcohol is an intensive medical detox plan that incorporates medical care, dual diagnosis treatments, emotional and behavioral health, and full-time 24-hour supervision to ensure you are safe as your body adjusts to the lack of drugs or alcohol in your system. This type of detox program is put into place to ensure no life-threatening or critical conditions occur (like delirium tremens), keeping you safe as you stay in our detox center.

Sub Acute Detox

Although some patients have severe addictions that require full-time, intensive addiction treatment in Margate, others may benefit more from detox programs that are lower intensity, or that are provided on an outpatient basis. Each substance use disorder’s treatment should suit the patients unique needs. At the Serenity Oaks recovery center, we customize each substance abuse program so that you do not receive more medication and treatment than you need. The goal is to help you stay comfortable and safe as your body detoxifies itself, and we will ensure you spend the time you need inside our treatment center’s care without overdoing it.

We offer nutrition classes, and through both group and individual therapy you will gain insight into yourself and your life, moving past addiction and into recovery.

Besides alcohol detox, we provide drug detox treatment plans that include:
