Admission to Serenity House

The Mission of Serenity House is to provide the best and most accessible residential treatment in the state of Maine for men with chemical addiction.

The admission process consists of the following:

It all begins with you!  Come right in and we will meet with you to do an assessment on the spot-or you can set a time with a call to our Admissions Staff at (207) 774-2722, ext. 13.

Meet the Resident Criteria Profile which will be determined during an assessment meeting with one of our clinical staff.  We will then set an Admission Date & Time.

Note: We strive to get you in the door RIGHT AWAY!  We recognize how important treatment is to you and how big of a step this is.  If we have a bed open when you come in, we WILL offer it to you that same day.  When you get here we will work with you to make you feel right at home.  You will be assigned a counselor, meet other residents and develop a treatment plan.  We will also go over a few other items such as: 

•Intake Property Inventory

•Reviewed Resident Code of Conduct

•Reviewed Financial Responsibility Disclosure

•Complete Financial Arrangements

Please note that the admissions staff will assist you and or your family in arranging the time for admission. Our preference is Monday through Friday betwen 9AM-2PM but other options will be considered based on the your needs.
