Knowing what you can expect when you arrive at a Serenity at Summit facility can be a big factor in making the decision to seek treatment with us. We want the admissions process to be transparent and simple so that you are fully informed of our admissions process before arriving at one of our centers. This way, you don’t have to worry about anything but your personal recovery journey.

The first thing that will happen when you walk into a Serenity facility is you will be greeted by one of our addiction specialists, who will assess your case and work with you to develop a treatment plan.
