In the fast-paced and often stressful world we live in, the need for substance abuse support has become crucial. Serenity House Counseling Services emerges as a beacon of hope, providing compassionate and professional services to people pursuing guidance and support on their journey to wellness. How does Serenity aim to break silence and stigmas while empowering generations?
Serenity House Counseling Services started as a humble endeavor, operating out of an abandoned farm and staffed by over 600 volunteers who openly express vulnerability. Such passion and commitment continue to be the foundation for the organization today. Serenity offers residential care and recovery home programs for adult men and women. Unlike traditional recovery programs that typically last 45 to 90 days, Serenity works with its clients for up to two years. Facility head Mark Buschbacher explains that longer recovery periods increase the chances of lifelong sobriety. While in residential care, Serenity staff helps clients find employment and provides transportation to and from work. After completing their stay in residential care, clients are released to a halfway house, which helps them take the next steps to reintegrate into society as healthy, happy, and responsible individuals.
