Serenity Homes Guiding Principles

Serenity Homes promotes safety, security, serenity and sobriety for each of our residents.  Our program provides our residents adequate structure and accountability with enough freedom to live their own lives.  The majority of our residents work full-time jobs while meeting the expectations of the Serenity Homes program. These principles are in place to ensure that our residents have more than enough support to flourish in their recovery. Our residents are required to comply with the following rules and expectations:
  • Total abstinence from alcohol, drugs, narcotic medications, mood altering substances is mandatory.
  • Attendance is required each week at our Serenity Tuesday and Wednesday night recovery meetings. Both meetings begin at 6:30 pm. Also, attendance is required at our Sunday night Serenity Village Community Church service, which starts at 6:00 pm. Immediately following the Sunday night church service, a weekly required house meeting is held back at your home.
  • Responsible to pay a program fee in the amount of $600/month and a one-time placement fee of $200. (TOTAL DUE AT MOVE IN IS $800). If attending the NuWay outpatient program, the placement fee will still be due at the time of move-in.
  • Volunteering to help at the church is highly encouraged.
  • You will be responsible for purchasing your own food and cooking your own meals.
  • Comply with curfews (11:00 pm Sunday-Thursday and 12:00 midnight on Friday and Saturdays)
  • Weekend passes are allowed with approval after the first two weekends of residency. Passes require 24 hour advance approval and are only allowed on Friday and Saturday nights.
  • Overnight guests are not allowed at the house at any time. Immediate family may visit the house but must remain in the common areas and be off the premises by 9:00 pm.
  • Random alcohol and drug testing will be performed as necessary.
  • Pornography and any form of gambling is prohibited.
  • Keeping your room clean and completing an assigned house chore is mandatory.
  • If not attending NuWay outpatient, proven employment search is mandatory within 30 days of occupancy.
  • Have a Sponsor with whom regular meetings are held.
