Want to stop drinking. End addiction. Get sober. Tune Up - Get Sober

Tired of Alcoholism or other Addiction? Want to stop drinking Do you want to stop drinking? Are you tired of addiction? Does it drag you down, run you around, and ultimately leave you with nothing to show for? Are you sick &  tired of being sick & tired? Sound familiar for you or someone you love?

Maybe you even managed to stop drinking or using drugs for a while. But yet again addiction has won you over. And like many times before, it has…

Sobriety with Complete Life Transformation

Sobriety and Life Transformation Pretty much everyone knows what ‘alcohol treatment’ or ‘drug rehab’ addiction treatment means, and what the process is all about. Briefly: a person finally breaks through their denial, realizes that their life is out of control, seeks and accepts help, and goes through change in thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Addiction treatment is a life changing proposition. If the alcoholic or addict is prepared to go to any length to get and stay sober, the results are nothing less than miraculous. Not only freedom from the chains of addiction – BUT – a whole new life of infinite possibilities and an understanding of what peace of mind really means. The change is much deeper than just stopping drinking or using drugs. It’s truly about life transformation. Unlike traditional institutional rehabs, we work passionately and intensely with each individual…

Serenity Vista Success Rates From the Inbox: What is your drug rehab success rate for Serenity Vista…do you have any statistics? Dear Parent of an Addicted Adult Child, Thank you for contacting Serenity Vista to ask about our rehab success rates for opiate addiction.

What kind of objective scientific rigor was put into determining those numbers,…

Endless Sober Summer

Endless Sober Summer in tropical paradise at Serenity Vista Alcohol & Drug Rehab

Sobriety   Most people whether sober or not are familiar with the classic surf film The Endless Summer – or at least most have heard the phrase at one point in their lives or another. The phrase conjures up images of swaying palm trees, lazy Hawaiian slide guitars, and paper umbrella fanned out over sweet tropical cocktails. As if in a Beach Boys song, endless summer means long unending days on the beach followed by warm, tiki torch nights with friends. We’ve all dreamed of an “endless summer” before. And many people, at some point in their lives, have even had a taste of it. They can remember those feelings of light minds and carelessness that accompany summer. Paradise Lost But this idea of a heavenly dream world, rich with social life and pleasant outings, is one of the things…

Chart Your Course Toward Sobriety

Head Toward Sobriety   If you are a drug addict or alcoholic cruising through life one fix after another, it’s time to re-evaluate your current course and calibrate your compass toward sobriety before you run aground. Caught in a succession of storms and constantly making repairs, it has probably been a very long time since you looked out over the horizon and asked yourself “what direction am I heading?” Are you making way toward a specific destination with all your heart and mind focused on success? Do you hope to arrive at sobriety some day? Or, like most active addicts, are you lost and adrift like a ship without a rudder? Or worse, are you living life at full speed ahead but asleep at the helm? If so, it’s only a matter of time until you end up on the rocks. Stormy…

Help Alcoholic Loved Ones

Help alcoholic loved one in active addiction

Alcoholic Loved Ones   Do You Live within Active Addiction? If someone you love is addicted to alcohol, nicotine or other drugs, you understand all too well the daily struggles and endless torment that alcoholism and other forms of addiction brings. Many times, you’ve likely found yourself at the painful end of numerous irrational arguments or substance-fueled shouting matches. You’ve tried to help alcoholic loved ones, tried to talk to them, but it always ends in disappointment. It’s a endless cycle of failure and frustration. It is also a cycle of fear. Maybe your loved one will disappear for days or even weeks on end without you or anyone else knowing where they are. You may know the feeling of constantly worrying and hoping you won’t get that fated phone call in the middle of the night, telling you that something awful…

Successfully Overcoming Addiction: Why Self Help Doesn’t Help

not-self-help alone to successfully overcoming addiction at Serenity Vista drug rehab

WHY SELF HELP DOESN’T HELP   Successfully Overcoming Addiction During more than 40 years of helping addicts with successfully overcoming addiction, we’re often asked why treating addiction with self help alone isn’t effective. Whether drug or alcohol abuse, alcoholism, drug addiction, eating disorders, sex addiction, or codependency, most unguided and solo attempts at trying to quit come crashing down in an eventual relapse. Why, despite firm commitment and full faith, why can’t addicts just quit on their own? When successfully overcoming addiction is the goal for the person in active addiction, why aren’t will power and determination effective? You Can’t Do it Alone For one, addiction is a persistent and complex condition. And just like other debilitating ailments – whether broken bones, cancer, or deep psychological trauma – getting professional help is crucial for healing at all stages from evaluation to…

Overcome Addiction with the Power of Intention

Overcome Addiction with the Power of Intention at Serenity Vista Best Drug Rehab

Overcome Addiction with the Power of Intention If you’re an addict, do you ever occasionally ask yourself, “what are my intentions?” Although simple on the surface, this single question holds the power to keep you from that next fix, from relapsing. The power of intention as a spiritual practice can support you on a remarkable journey to overcome addiction to freedom. What are your intentions? Most addicts rarely think about their intentions. The problem with this is that we live in an increasingly misguided and unhealthy society. Left unchecked and unguided, an addict’s decisions are already made for him or her. The current world is full of distractions. Modern life promotes the need to achieve instant gratification and avoid pain or problems when they surface. The world today asks for everything pleasant right now and it wants it bigger, better, faster,…
