The Serenity Program for mothers seeking recovery in Georgia

Mothers who are struggling with mental health concerns and substance use disorders have a unique set of needs when it comes to getting treatment. At Lakeview Behavioral Health Hospital, we help mothers age 18 and older work toward recovery in a safe, welcoming environment. 

Flexible Outpatient Treatment

One of the biggest barriers to treatment for mothers and other caretakers is finding time to commit to receiving the help they need. As an outpatient service, the Serenity Program gives you the flexibility to receive structured care while still being there for your child. 

That’s why we offer both in-person and virtual treatment options. If you have the availability to come to Lakeview Behavioral Health Hospital for treatment, we encourage you to do so. If your schedule prohibits you from meeting in person, our virtual treatment features the same evidence-based interventions delivered by the same team of qualified professionals. 

How the Serenity Program Works

If you are a mother who is interested in the Serenity Program, reach out to our admissions department and we will set up an assessment that will allow us to determine your treatment needs.

Each patient follows a personalized treatment plan that may include basic medical care, medication management, and, for those who struggle with a substance use disorder, detoxification services.  

You will also participate in a variety of therapy sessions, including:

  • Weekly individual therapy
  • Family therapy on a case-by-case basis
  • Weekly art or music therapy 
  • Daily group therapy, with topics including codependency, family of origin, boundaries, relationships, communication, guilt, shame, and trauma
