At Life Healing Center, we recognize the strife that is caused by unaddressed trauma and are pleased to offer treatment for such distress via our Serenity Program. Experiencing, witnessing, or learning about a trauma or a series of traumatic events can have a profound effect on a person, and the results of traumatic experiences can be devastating. Individuals who lack coping skills often turn to drugs, alcohol, or self-destructive behaviors, and struggle with the ability to function on a day-to-day basis.
The Serenity Program is designed for men and women, ages 18 and older, who require resolution and care for trauma-related symptoms. This program can supply you with holistic treatment that attends to unresolved emotional pain and turmoil, as well as co-occurring mental health conditions and chemical dependency. Within this specialized program, you will embark on the road to serenity, and lay the foundation for true healing by transitioning from a victimized mindset that includes feelings of unrest and helplessness into a calm, peaceful, and forward-moving being that can live a life that is authentic and productive.
The Serenity Program takes place at our treatment center in Santa Fe, NM (near Albuquerque). This program includes several objectives that are meant to assist you in processing trauma and developing the skills needed to achieve and ultimately sustain healthy recovery. These objectives include:
