Experience the benefits of group therapy.
At Serene Behavioral Health, our services include both day and evening psychoeducational groups. These groups will focus on self-help skills, behavioral adjustment, interpersonal relationships, prevocational preparation, alternative placement planning, and social skills. We have geared all our programming toward transitioning clients out of treatment and into “real-world” independent living.
Groups occur Monday through Sunday, averaging four hours per day. All staff and services at Serene Behavioral Health are supervised by licensed practitioners, as well as our general manager, program director, and clinical operations manager.
Optional services Serene Behavioral Health can provide through community interdisciplinary resources include psychological testing, smoking cessation treatment, TMS, acupuncture, and IV infusion treatment.
We are devoted to help structure treatment to meet your individual needs
Serene offers a variety of modalities and a diverse team to meet individual client needs.
- Cognitive behavioral therapy: Cognitive behavioral therapy helps people discover a more positive attitude toward life by encouraging them to think through their actions.
- Dialectical behavioral therapy: This mode of therapy provides clients with greater emotional stability and the skills to form healthy relationships.
- Motivational therapy: Also known as motivational interviewing, motivational therapy provides a foundation for the drive to change their behaviors for the better.
Clients who require medication to treat their physical, mental, and emotional issues will be assessed by a private physician or by Serene’s prescribing medical staff before admission. Our trained staff will pick up prescriptions at the client’s expense and keep them in a locked cabinet. Clients will self-administer their necessary prescriptions under the direct supervision of a staff member. Any prescriptions brought from home will require inspection and approval from the medical director. Our staff will destroy any non-approved medications.
Serene Behavioral Health staff are experienced and fully trained to handle any medical or psychiatric emergency. When clients report their inability to remain safe, our staff will notify the appropriate senior management and clinicians, perform necessary assessments of the concerning behavior, and if necessary, transfer the client to an emergency department or psychiatric hospital and provide or arrange for follow-up for continuity of care.
Serene staff members have received training in the process of safety assessment and monitoring for medical and psychiatric emergencies. Serene Behavioral Health engages in pre-crisis planning and has assigned staff members clear roles in case of an emergency.
Serene Behavioral Health will provide all necessary transportation to medical and non-medical appointments, as well as all necessary clinical appointments. We will also provide transportation for necessary daily living and to community events, outings, and activities. Lastly, we will provide transportation every evening to allow our clients to attend self-help meetings, and on the weekends, will drive clients to their preferred places of worship as necessary.
Serene Behavioral Health will not violate the rights of any client or resident during their stay. We admit clients without regard to race, color, religion, disability, gender, sexual orientation, age, or national origin. We provide treatment and services in a drug- and alcohol-free environment.
