Our Residential Treatment Centers in Houston

In 2017 alone, over 20 million Americans needed substance abuse treatment. Although Serenity Light Recovery is 12-step based, we understand one size doesn’t fit all. Because of that, we provide clients with options on their path to recovery. This supplemental education and support comes in the form of the 12 Steps but also Celebrate Recovery and SMART Recovery.

12 Step Program

Historically, the 12-step program is a tried and true program for recovery from addiction. Its guidelines help alcoholics and addicts overcome their addiction. Created by Alcoholics Anonymous, the 12-steps have been adopted as the foundation for other 12-step programs, such as NA (Narcotics Anonymous), CA (Cocaine Anonymous), CMA (Crystal Meth Anonymous), etc.

These steps involve an admission of powerlessness over addiction, recognition of a higher power as a source of strength, examination of past mistakes and making amends, learning to live by a new code of ethics, and helping others who suffer from this disease. These guidelines and the community built as individuals strive to live by them have proven successful. Individuals are better able to be held accountable and hold others accountable through the support systems they make through 12-step programs. Often, these programs provide the necessary resources an individual needs to not only recover but make sobriety a lasting condition.

If the 12-step program sounds like something that may work for you, learn more by visiting AA, the 12-step programs, Serenity Light Recovery offers can provide you, regardless of what substance abuse, with a proven path towards recovery. Now is the time to get started by contacting us today.

SMART Recovery

Another option we offer is SMART Recovery. This program utilizes a scientific approach, as opposed to the spiritual approach of the 12 steps and Celebrate Recovery. SMART Recovery’s 4-Point program teaches behavior modification by increasing self-reliance, rather than focusing on powerlessness. The 4-Points include building and maintaining motivation, coping with urges, managing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and living a balanced life.

Celebrate Recovery

Sometimes clients need more than a clinical, scientific approach. Also, they require a connection to their faith that’s more specific than what 12-Step programs can offer. If you are a Christian and are looking for a Christ-centered recovery program, Celebrate Recovery may be what you need. This program utilizes the teachings of Jesus and scripture rather than a psychological approach. 

Celebrate Recovery’s 8 Principles are similar to the 12 Steps but are solely based on Biblical teaching. This approach is designed to help one overcome the “hurts, habits, and hang-ups” of their past addiction and lead the individual to live a life of sobriety through the loving power of Jesus Christ.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

When someone is struggling with both variables of mental illness and addiction, it can be a challenge to identify what to treat first. Individuals who are dealing with mental health issues tend to self-medicate with drugs and alcohol to cope with the symptoms of anxiety, depression, or other diagnoses. It is important to identify any medications, if needed, and integrate approaches to identify symptom management. During treatment at Serenity Light Recovery, our professional staff will assist you in assessing and evaluating symptoms, and provide the client with appropriate interventions to focus on the goal of stabilization.

At Serenity Light Recovery, we understand the importance of addressing issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, eating disorders, and attention deficit issues. Our program incorporates coping skills and techniques to manage both substance use disorder, as well as mental illness.

For addicts and alcoholics, temptations to use are inevitable. Serenity Light Recovery’s SCARS Trigger Awareness Program is one-of-a-kind to help our clients develop appropriate reactions when faced with everyday triggers. Triggers are barriers to staying sober, as they tend to set off cravings. It is important that, as addicts and alcoholics, we recognize what our triggers are and how they affect us.

Triggers can be external stimuli such as:

  • A color
  • A pleasant or unpleasant smell
  • A certain object
  • Music

It can also be a feeling like:

  • Sadness
  • Anger
  • Stress
  • Anxiety

By building a strong awareness of one’s self and environment, our clients can address the impact that triggers have on their life and their sobriety, while processing through their feelings in a safe and clinically supervised environment. Through creative art expression, education, and group processing, our clients will take a look at various triggering obstacles, and discuss what they are feeling and why they see these objects, or feelings, as provoking. This provides a safe way to navigate past these emotions to gain awareness and self-control, by creating healthy coping skills for triggers.
