Serenity Place is a residential treatment center for pregnant women, young mothers, and their preschool-age children. At Serenity Place, space is available for 16 women with up to 2 children each. Admittance priority is given to pregnant, intravenous drug users. Residential treatment is intensive, for a minimum of 50 hours per week, and daily life is structured with a focus on parenting and positive family and independent living skills. The average length of stay could be as much as 6 months, depending on the severity factors.  

The program at Serenity Place is focused and intense. The clinical staff works towards three objectives:

  1. Heal the mother's addiction
  2. Accelerate the child's development
  3. Build long-term skills for family strength and self-sufficiency

Because addiction has damaged most aspects of these families' lives, all aspects must be rebuilt. Serenity Place provides the holistic approach and highly structured environment needed for long-term recovery, a healthy lifestyle, and positive parenting.
