In a recent conversation with Sherique Idri, a Clinical Director at Serenity Treatment Center of Louisiana, it became evident how our center’s approach to helping people in their recovery journey is truly exceptional. One of the key elements that set Serenity Treatment Center apart is the deep passion and dedication of the counselors. This passion extends beyond the treatment itself and encapsulates a comprehensive addiction support system for the clients.
” My name is Cherie Guidry. I am the Clinical Director at the Weymouth location. What is unique about our process is one, the passion. The counselors at Serenity Center go above and beyond. We have transportation available to where people have the availability to come to treatment. If they don’t have a driver’s license, or they need a reprint of it, we’ll bring them to go get that. We make sure that our clients get the help that they need.
We are a family, a real family. As a result of that, our clients get the best of that world because we all work together. We’re all passionate about this one thing, and that is to help. Our facility provides detox. It provides residential inpatient. It provides intensive outpatient.
The difference between just going into AA and treatment is that in treatment you get a break. You get a break from the world to clear your head, to really understand. Our facility, we have a sponsorship program where people from the AA community actually come in, do AA meetings. They come sponsor them so that way our clients have already worked steps and are ready for that next phase of their recovery, that transition into AA.
After residential, it prepares them for that next phase. We recommend a lot of sober living. We work with a lot of sober living in the community. A lot of our clients go from inpatient into sober living and then attend our three day a week IOP program where they have a counselor still to where they can transition back into the real-world learning how to use the tools that were taught inpatient.
We help. We don’t stop. I love that about this, seeing how on fire everybody is. It’s not just a hey, come in and get treatment. It’s a we really want to set you up for life, for success. “

The Difference Between AA and Addiction Treatment
There is a distinction between traditional Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings and treatment programs. While AA meetings are undoubtedly valuable, the structure of treatment programs provides a respite from the outside world, allowing individuals to fully focus on their recovery. Additionally, the sponsorship program at Serenity Treatment Center seamlessly integrates AA principles into the treatment. This proactive approach prepares clients for their transition into AA and equips them with the necessary tools for sustained recovery.

The recommendation of sober living arrangements and the facilitation of transitioning into the 3-day-a-week intensive outpatient program illustrates our commitment to long-term success.
