Recovery from Alcoholism
Serenity Lane’s Treatment for Alcohol Use Disorder
A 2018 National Survey on Drug Use and Health found that 14.4 million adults had an alcohol use disorder. Of this group, 9.2 million were men and 5.3 million were women. Every year, alcohol-related causes will kill 88,000 people, making it the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States.
Serenity Lane has been treating alcohol use disorder since 1973. Our continuum of care services include detox services, residential, day treatment, intensive outpatient and DUII services. We also provide integrated mental health and family services throughout all levels of care. On average, our patient population is at least 50-60 percent patients who identify alcohol as their substance of choice. This patient mix provides a strong base of support and common experience for the alcohol use disorder patients that we treat.
Our treatment model is based on three primary goals: to treat the whole patient, provide a foundation for long-term recovery and keep patients engaged in programming for an extended period of time. Patient testimonials attest to the success of these approaches.
The Process of Receiving Alcohol Use Disorder Treatment at Serenity Lane
Making the Call: When you call Serenity Lane you’ll be connected with a member of our Admissions team. This person will collect information, verify benefits and can schedule an screening. Screenings may be performed in-person or over the phone.
Screening: Screenings are free and confidential and take approximately 35 minutes. At this time the admissions counselor will gather information, make treatment recommendations and answer questions.
Admission: Patients admitting to Serenity Lane go through a 90-minute admission process that includes more in-depth work with an admissions counselor, care planning, medical check-up and intake into the Serenity Lane hospital unit for observation and detoxification. Patients admitting with an alcohol use disorder will undergo medically monitored and assisted detox in our hospital unit in Coburg, Oregon.
Treatment: Patients with an alcohol use disorder will work with a multi-disciplinary team of medical, mental health and drug and alcohol experts. Patients will look at underlying issues around their alcohol use disorder, attend group programming, work one-on-one with a certified alcohol and drug counselor. Family members will also be invited to participate in family programming. Care planning varies and Serenity Lane provides residential, extended residential, Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient services.
Specialized Services: We also have specialty groups for health care professionals, first responders and safety-sensitive occupations. Our Employer Services and Health Care Professionals programs provide assistance if there is a licensing or legal issue related to your treatment.
