A Multifaceted Approach to Residential Addiction Treatment for Men

To improve your chance of recovery, our men’s rehab program focuses on three major factors of treatment: your mind, body, and spirit. As one or more of these areas become unbalanced, they can directly contribute directly to your substance use disorder.

All of our providers are experts in their field and utilize specialized treatment programs for each individual. By developing an individualized approach for each of our guests, we can successfully break old habits and work to promote new and healthy ones.


Substance use disorder starts in the mind. Daily services are provided to guests in the men’s rehab program to help restore proper cognitive thinking and processing. Healing is fostered by experienced clinicians through group therapy and individual therapy sessions using the latest advances in research in the mental health field.

The professionals at Serenity Springs realize that drinking and illicit drug use is only a symptom of mental health disorders and not the root cause. The goal is to have guests leave the program with an understanding of their disease and mental clarity that they could have never imagined before beginning substance abuse treatment.


Drug and alcohol abuse destroys the body. Serenity Springs’ treatment options help heal the body through proper nutrition, exercise, and supplementation. Those who enter the men’s rehab program begin healing on day one of treatment.

Delicious meals are designed by a nutritionist and prepared by a professional chef. Additionally, guests at our Florida rehab center will have access to healthy snacks 24 hours a day. guests leave Serenity Springs with their bodies feeling completely rejuvenated.


Our treatment program focuses on healing broken spirits and is one of the best male rehabilitation centers in Florida. Beginning with daily meditation, guests work every day, both individually and in support groups on reducing selfishness, gaining discipline, and changing their perspective on life.

Guests work through the 12-steps with experienced staff members who have recovered from addiction themselves by going through the same process. By being given the framework to produce a vital spiritual experience, guests leave our substance abuse treatment program with newfound freedom and happiness they never thought possible.

Why Choose Residential Substance Abuse Treatment?

Serenity Springs Recovery Center’s residential substance abuse treatment program is an ideal option for those who need to heal outside of their existing environment. Men who are trying to beat drug addiction may find it challenging to do so in the same physical space as many of the triggers that supported their addiction before.

Dealing with all the things that may have promoted substance abuse in the past is hard enough. It can be exponentially hard for men who try to do so around the same people and places that perpetuated drug and alcohol abuse in the past.

Men who are looking for a new life and a new path forward will find it in residential addiction treatment at Serenity Springs. Because of the extent to which our program promotes inner peace, our guests feel stronger in mind and body when it’s time to transition after their stay.

What To Expect from Residential Treatment Services

Each treatment center program is individualized to the person in recovery. We use a multidisciplinary immersion program that caters to mind, body and spirit during addiction treatment. It’s important to address all three during recovery to assure success at the end of the program. Some of the resources provided to men during residential addiction treatment include:

  • Psychiatric care
  • Full-service medical staff
  • EMDR therapy
  • Family services
  • One-on-one therapy
  • Professional chef
  • Weekly outing
  • Team sports and athletics
  • Aftercare planning

By creating individualized treatment plans for each of the men who engage in recovery at our treatment center, we can work through some of the habits that may be holding them back from healing and create new healthy coping mechanisms.

Intensive Outpatient Treatment Programs at Serenity Springs

For some men, residential treatment programs simply are not an option. This doesn’t mean, however, that drug abuse wins. We offer an intensive outpatient program (IOP) that combines clinical techniques with an immersion program specifically geared towards helping those dealing with alcohol abuse. We have a team of clinicians and staff, all of whom have personal experience with addiction and a professional resume of success in helping guests overcome harmful patterns of addiction.

One of the reasons we take an intensive and immersive approach is the apprehension some guests feel about not immediately changing their physical environment or engaging in alcohol addiction rehab in a residential setting. While our Edgewater recovery center is structured to promote healing in a residential environment, the truth is that this isn’t always possible for all our guests. Because we’re invested in recovery from alcohol addiction for those who want it, our intensive outpatient programs are structured to be just as immersive and intensive as many of our residential programs. This is our way of ensuring everyone who desires treatment receives it, whether residential or outpatient.

Why Choose Intensive Outpatient Treatment?

Far too many men struggling with alcohol addiction mistakenly believe that if they can’t receive inpatient services, healing isn’t possible. This couldn’t be further from the truth. When it comes to substance abuse, doing something is always better than doing nothing at all. In fact, we designed our intensive outpatient treatment program to be as rigorous in many ways as our residential approach. Making the decision to center drug and alcohol rehab in any setting is a major feat. Therefore, as one of the best treatment centers, we want to ensure we have the programs in place to meet each of you right where you are. For some, this means an outpatient program that allows you to couple drug and alcohol rehab with remaining engaged in your daily life.

As such, our intensive program allows men to get the help they need to overcome alcohol addiction at Serenity Springs Recovery Center. Choosing intensive outpatient treatment for alcohol addiction is an investment in yourself and your future. While you may be apprehensive about receiving treatment while still continuing to be present in your life as it is, our program is structured to provide as much support and help as possible to help you navigate healing right where you are.

What To Expect From Intensive Outpatient Treatment Services

As with residential treatment, our intensive outpatient program is heavily skewed towards each individual guest. But there are components of this program that are shared experiences. For instance, we engage in small group therapy so the men participating in this program can share their experiences and lean on one another for support during group sessions. In these groups, we maintain a two-to-one staff ratio at all times so each member of the group feels they’re getting the support they need to help them on the path to recovery.

We also have an immersion therapy program that implements daily steps for each guest that will help keep them focused both while they’re at our treatment center and while walking through life outside of it. We offer therapeutic services for individuals, couples and families impacted by alcohol addiction. While some treatment centers focus solely on the individual struggling with substance abuse, Serenity Springs Recovery Center takes a different approach. We believe one of the best ways to truly heal is by ensuring the connections most important to our guests remain intact. This may mean couples or family counseling is needed to address some of the wounds caused by alcohol addiction.

Individualized Treatment Plans for Aftercare

When our guests have done the necessary work to recover, they may be nervous about what the next steps might be after leaving a treatment facility. After all, doing the work is hard enough, but it can feel overwhelming to consider implementing all you learned during this program in your daily life. Many of our guests express this apprehension before they even complete treatment, which can cause further stress during an already tenuous healing process. At Serenity Springs Recovery Center, we know recovery continues even after you complete one of our programs. In fact, this may be the most important aspect of treatment, as this is the point at which you take all you’ve learned about your alcohol addiction and recovery and apply it to your daily life.

For many men completing treatment, recovery is a scary time because of the sheer number of unknown factors and the extent to which their healing may be compromised. For some, it means a return to an environment that may be full of triggers for drug and alcohol use. For others, the uncertainty can feel overwhelming.

What To Expect From Substance Abuse Treatment Aftercare

At Serenity Springs Recovery Center, we take as hands-on an approach to aftercare, as we do to the therapeutic components of rehab. We’ll give you the tools necessary to be successful upon leaving one of our treatment centers so the chances of remaining sober are high.

We’ll create and help you sustain a strong support system and help you find the right sober living environment that ensures you can continue the healthy habits you developed while in treatment. Areas of focus during aftercare include:

  • Finding a sober living environment
  • Ongoing outpatient therapy
  • Access to medical providers and alcohol addiction specialists
  • Individual counseling

We make sure our guests know the support and care they receive from our staff while navigating our treatment programs don’t end when they leave. We’re always here to help during aftercare and beyond to ensure each of our guests successfully overcomes alcohol addiction and can reclaim the life they deserve.

What You Need To Know About Alcohol Abuse

People abuse alcohol for many reasons. Some engage in drug and alcohol use to reduce anxiety or dispel depression. Others do so to heighten a good mood; it’s all dependent on the individual and their current circumstance. Simply stated, people who abuse alcohol become addicted to the way the substance makes them feel.

The main problem, however, is in the way the alcoholic feels when they don’t have alcohol in their system. The emotions and thought processes that take place in the alcoholic’s mind when they’re sober are the major driving force that brings people back to drinking. Drug addiction works in similar ways.

Why do people continue to abuse alcohol despite experiencing negative consequences?

The heavy drinker continues to abuse alcohol after experiencing negative consequences for many reasons. Simply stated, the individual hasn’t found a sufficient solution to the way they experience life without having alcohol change the way they feel. The main problem for the alcoholic is the way they feel when not drinking.

At Serenity Springs Recovery Center, we realize that the negative consequences of alcoholism are rooted in more than just physical dependence. This is one of the reasons our program takes a mind, body and spirit approach to addiction recovery.

What are some warning signs of alcohol abuse and alcoholism?

Some common warning signs that someone is abusing alcohol are:

  • Drinking alone/in secret
  • Making excuses for drinking
  • Blacking out
  • Choosing to drink over other obligations
  • Lack of interest in positive things
  • A negative mood when not drinking
  • General lack of interest in things they used to enjoy
  • An inability to control intake once starting

What are the short-term effects of alcohol abuse and alcoholism?

Some of the short-term consequences of abusing alcohol and alcoholism are impaired judgment, blackouts, vomiting, nausea, insomnia, lack of appetite, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, headaches, coma and death.

What are the long-term effects of alcohol abuse and alcoholism?

Alcohol abuse and alcoholism can produce numerous long-term negative physical, mental and emotional consequences. The physical consequences of long-term alcohol abuse and alcoholism can include but are not limited to internal organ damage (liver and kidneys), brain damage (Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome, aka “wet brain”), damage to the central nervous system, cancer, ulcers, high blood pressure and stroke.

The mental consequences of long-term drug and alcohol abuse can be severe. Substance abuse can significantly alter a person’s brain chemistry. One primary consequence of chronic alcohol abuse is depression and anxiety. Ironically, a person who uses alcohol to treat anxiety and depression will likely find these symptoms increase when there’s no alcohol in their system. Many abusers develop a mental dependence on alcohol. When they aren’t drinking, all the person can seem to think about is alcohol. In addition, long-term alcohol abusers can have difficulty with both their short-term and long-term memory. In extreme cases, a user can develop “wet brain,” in which a person essentially develops alcohol-related dementia, an irreversible form of brain damage.

Some of the most severe consequences of abusing alcohol are emotional. Emotional issues are usually a major driving force behind an individual continuing to use despite negative consequences. After time, someone who becomes dependent on alcohol will be unable to control either good or bad emotions. Alcohol is a depressant; therefore, it’s not surprising for a person abusing alcohol to become depressed over time. Getting to and fixing the root emotional issues is a key factor in ensuring an individual’s long-term sobriety.

What are some signs and symptoms of alcohol withdrawal?

Some physical symptoms of alcohol withdrawal are shakiness, sweating, chills and nausea. An individual experiencing the symptoms may feel like they’re getting the flu. Alcohol withdrawal can also affect a person’s mood and behavior, creating a feeling of restless nervousness coupled with anxiety. In more severe cases of alcohol withdrawal, a person may actually experience hallucinations and, in the most acute cases, can suffer from life-threatening delirium tremens, which can bring on seizures and even death.

How long does alcohol withdrawal last?

Alcohol withdrawal can last weeks and may have potentially deadly consequences. Withdrawal from alcohol should never be done alone. The potential danger associated with alcohol withdrawal should never be overlooked, and the highest precautions should always be used. Seeking an alcohol treatment center that medically assists the alcoholic through the detox process is always the recommendation and priority of addiction professionals.

Three Stages of Alcohol Withdrawal

  • The first stage usually commences at approximately 8 hours from the last drink. In this stage, the person withdrawing usually reports high levels of anxiety, restlessness, insomnia, agitation, nausea, shaky hands and sweating.
  • The second stage of alcohol withdrawal occurs between 24 and 72 hours of the user’s last drink. During this stage, they may experience heart palpitations and high blood pressure, along with many of the symptoms from stage 1 being exacerbated. Alcohol withdrawal peaks at approximately 72 hours after the last drink.
  • This begins the third stage, the most severe of the three stages of alcohol withdrawal. During this time, people have been reported to experience hallucinations, high fever, seizures, and even death.

Frequently Asked Questions

Going to rehab can seem daunting for many people, especially when the realization of your addiction unveils itself. Although this can seem like a complicated process, we’ve put together a few common questions and answers to help ease your mind and prepare you for the road ahead.

Rehabilitation is not just a place where you fight your addiction. At Serenity Springs Recovery Center, our men’s rehab center is designed to help you fight your addiction once and for all while healing your body, mind, and spirit.

Fighting your addiction alone can be isolating and more challenging. However, along the journey, we help provide you with services that will help you rebuild your body, mind, and spirit for ultimate success. When you have a strong support system such as the one that we offer in our men’s residential facility, you are better able to lead a sober lifestyle.

Many people often ask, “how can I prepare for rehabilitation?” Knowing what to expect when you enter into our programs can better help you begin your journey to recovery on the right foot. Although it can be overwhelming to enter a new chapter in your life, ultimately, it is for the best, and we are here to support you through it.

Before entering into our treatment programs, our admission coordinators will give you an over-the-phone evaluation. During this call, you’ll be able to get answers to any questions or concerns that you may have. You will also be given a detailed outline of your individualized treatment plan, which is created based on your evaluation. This process helps to make you aware of what will be taking place throughout the program. It’s also a great time to ask any unanswered questions regarding our policies and overall recovery process.

The main concern for many people when entering into our men’s rehab center is how long the program is. It can create more anxiety when you are faced with the reality that you will be away from family, friends, work, and other responsibilities for an extended period. Our residential gender-specific men’s in-patient program is designed to help you fully immerse yourself in the recovery journey. This program can last anywhere from 30-90 days.

While the average alcohol rehab program can take anywhere from a month to a year – or even longer in some cases – it’s crucial to know what factors determine the length of your stay. A phone evaluation will help our staff members gain more information about the severity of your addiction. This will help us create an individualized treatment plan and course of action that will best suit your needs throughout the program.

Fighting your addiction involves more than a therapy session and discussing past trauma. At Serenity Springs Recovery Center, we believe in treating our guests as a whole to help heal the mind, body, and spirit for optimal recovery.

There are a plethora of rehabilitation centers across the United States. Each one offers a variety of programs for different needs.

At Serenity Springs Recovery Center, our approach to treating your addiction involves healing all aspects of your mind, body, and spirit. We offer industry-leading addiction and clinical interventions, including psychiatric care, health and wellness services, and many more tailored options to your recovery process.

We pride ourselves on being able to create individualized treatment plans specific to your needs and goals. Our high staff-to-client ratio allows us to provide an individualized, compassionate focus to ensure that all our guests are getting what they need at all times.
