Extended Residential

Extended Stay Addiction Recovery Program
Home Treatment Programs Extended Residential (formerly ExSL)

Longterm Treatment for Relapse Prone Individuals

Serenity Lane offers a residential track featuring a longer length of stay for complex cases and patients who work in a safety occupation

Serenity Lane provides long-term residential programming for relapse prone individuals, health care professionals and employees in safety-sensitive occupations. Our long-term residential program has two tracks to better meet the needs of our patients.

Program Overview

  • Patients learn healthy communication, tackle deeper emotional and behavioral issues.
  • Strong focus on coping skills, spirituality and relapse prevention.
  • Patients are given specially-tailored assignments to delve into relapse-related issues.

Each person’s needs define their pathway to recovery with a focus on the elimination of self-defeating behaviors, promotion of social attitudes and values, and caring for others. “Love your neighbor…”

This program is specifically designed for relapse prone individuals. Some features include:

  • Greater emphasis on identifying and addressing core issues and unfinished business directly related to addiction and that can trigger relapse.
  • Examination of core psychological personality and abuse issues that may result in relapse.
  • Tactics and strategies for managing cravings.

Length of the program varies with individual needs.

The Last Treatment Program You’ll Need

A bold statement, but true for many of our patients!

The profile of an Extended Residential patient is one who has had one or more residential treatments of 21+ days and has been unable to find lasting recovery. These patients know how to “talk the talk,” but can’t (or won’t) “walk the walk” of treatment and recovery. Typically, they are the wisest of the “treatment wise.”

There are no lectures in ExSL, only hard-hitting, compassionate confrontation of the numerous cognitive and spiritual blocks that are keeping the patient from surrender and acceptance. Family sessions, in one-on-one settings and group sessions, are included in the program. These meetings are meant to shed light on the family dynamics that have been infected by the disease and to allow healing to begin.

How do we accomplish this mission where others have fallen short despite their best efforts?

Perhaps the most important ingredient is time. The belief systems are so entrenched and well guarded that only the keenest clinician can spot them, which requires extended time, observation, and a therapeutic alliance for trust to be established. Our typical patient has mastered the survival skill of deceit to such a level that they are no longer aware of the patterns they use to keep the disease active.

Behaviors, written and verbal statements, attitudes and beliefs are constantly being challenged and dissected. As a result, no stone is left unturned in ferreting out the core of the disease.

The core ingredient of our program is a requirement that the patient be honest, open, and willing to participate.

Program Results

Internal studies have been conducted that demonstrate a very high success rate of recovery for those patients who complete their prescribed course of treatment. 84% of patients report being sober a year after completing treatment.
