Here are some common questions that are asked. If you have any other questions please feel free to contact us.
Q1. What should I bring?
— Plan to bring items that you would bring if you were moving into a fully furnished house. Things like your phone/computer/tablet, clothing, personal care products, laundry detergent, razors, ext. should be brought. We provide pillows, towels, blankets, and bedding... however feel free to bring your own as well.
Q2. What is the price of your program?
— The price of our program is $500 bi-weekly or $1000 a month. There is also a $200 one-time intake fee.
Q3. Can my children live with me?
— Children are allowed to visit the house but may not spend the night outside of extraordinary situations.
Q4. How long can I stay at Serenity Falls, do you have to stay for a certain amount of time?
— You're welcome to stay at Serenity Falls for as long as you'd like. We've built a community that makes many women want to stay for the long haul, however, we understand that everyone's situation is different. There is no required sign-on period but we do ask for at least a 30-day commitment.
— Q5. What if I use... will I have to leave?
At Serenity Falls we have a no-tolerance policy for drug or alcohol use. Our entire culture is centered around providing a safe and sober place for women to live and grow. With that said, relapse is part of recovery. Our policy in a relapse situation is to have you leave the house until you have been fully detoxed. You may then re-enter the house depending on a vote by the rest of the house members.
Q6. What medications are allowed?
I'm a nurse with an extensive background in pharmacology and addiction medicine. Our policy is that if a medication is prescribed by a doctor who is aware of your addiction or alcoholism then it is approved. Any medication that is considered a controlled medication must be kept in a separate locked safe that is governed by the house manager. These medications will be given out in 7-day increments.
We are a Pro-Suboxone Facility.
Q7. Can I bring my vehicle?
— Of course! As long as you provide proof of insurance, license, and registration anyone may bring their vehicle. We have a 3-car garage that is given out based on house seniority.
Q8. Can I have people over at the house?
— Yes. You may bring guests over with the house manager's approval. However, no one will be able to stay overnight.
Q9. Can I leave the house to visit my children/family/friends/boyfriend overnight?
— Yes. However, during the first 30 days of our program, you will be in Phase 1 where there are no overnights allowed. Following this for months 2-4, you will be in Phase 2 where you may have 2 overnights a week. And after month 4 you may have multiple overnights a week.
