At the Serenity Centre, we are dedicated to helping individuals by addressing their addictions in a supportive environment and equipping them with the necessary tools to manage their recovery.
Our inpatient ward provides a safe environment where individuals can heal, supported by professionals and recovering peers who understand the challenges of addiction. Our inpatient programme consists of two phases: Detoxification and Rehabilitation. These phases are specifically designed to address the needs of individuals seeking recovery, including those with cormorbid mental health conditions.
To recover from substance addiction, a formal detox period is the first stage of recovery. It prepares you physically and mentally before engaging in the rest of the rehabilitation process.
Generally, if you are substance dependent, you will experience very uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms when you discontinue your drug use. Our detoxification programme offers up to 7 days of support to help you relieve acute physical and emotional distress. Our clinicians will closely monitor withdrawal symptoms and offer care to ensure a safe detoxification process.
