Serenity by the Sea is a residential program for men designed to restore their dignity, self-respect, and facilitate healthy reunification of families. Our mission is to provide a safe, structured living environment for men to heal and recover from alcoholism and addiction. We are dedicated to Affirmation, Encouragement, and Optimism in its approach to residents and their families.

Due to the increased number of opiate dependent men, we have elected to accept Suboxone Clients. Should one be in need of Suboxone Induction go to for more information. we have a medical doctor whom we refer to and will work with locally. Our long-term goal is abstinence!

Individual needs are addressed in a program requiring responsible life choices, personal growth and determining the self-defeating behaviors that have prevented a man from realizing his full potential.

In keeping with our desire to empower men in recovery, Serenity by the Sea limits its capacity to 6 to 8 Men who are willing to go to Any Length for their sobriety! Recovery MUST BE PRIORITY or else they will utterly fail...

To facilitate the recovery of men with various needs and issues, we may schedule additional counseling and help using a Network of Certified Professionals. Our Outside Resources Include:

  • Employment
  • Psychiatric
  • Dental
  • Educational
  • Health

Living Arrangements

Group living requires a commitment by the residents; demonstrated by their willingness to involve themselves in the community here at the home and in the community. In order for this to occur, guidelines and rules have been implemented that work for the whole.

Individual and Financial Commitment

  • An interview/assessment by clinical director is required for admission
  • An Entry Fee and program cost is required at the time of admission-Then the client be eventually be required to seek gainful employment and begin paying his own way through this process which promotes self-worth and accountability.
  • Fees include room, board and in-house recovery/addiction services, workshops and classes.

Men will eventually be required to work full time, in approved occupations, as the primary focus is on inner work, group, and attendance at area wide Recovery Supportive meetings, such as AA, NA, CA, and Celebrate Recovery.

With the help of peer resources, outside sponsors, accountability partners, and the recovering community, the men at Serenity by the Sea develop self-discipline and life skills that reinforce and strengthen their foundation in recovery.

The Process of events with the addicted offender......

Review inmates immediate needs to see if they meet protocol for our services • Submit a pre-screening application for services to the jail • Upon receipt we schedule a phone screen to ensure the inmate is willing to change, ( not just because they are locked up. • Once we feel certain the inmate is a good fit we then contact the family . • We contact the defense attorneys office to request a motion for expedited bond modification. • We attempt to communicate with the D.A/Solicitors office to see if they are on the same page or in opposition with our clinical recommendation for the inmate needing pre-trial release for the sole purpose of getting well so this doesn’t continue and become a way of life for the inmate. ( some people become institutionalized and are not even aware. • Once we have this in place we are at the mercy of the DA’s office and the Court system to get us before a General Sessions/Superior Court Judge to request a PR bond/Bond Reduction for the purpose of going into a program of recovery which most likely caused the inmate to commit the alleged crime. • Once we have a date on the docket we travel and present all the findings on a clinical basis and mitigating factors as to why the inmate should be allowed to be released for said reasons. • Once permitted the Judge will sign off on this and our staff will schedule a pick up time with the jail sgt, to get the inmate and transport them to the location of treatment. • We are very involved from this point forward however we do not try and step on the toes of those whom run the facility. We are basically on-call as a case manager. Keeping ongoing lines of communication open between us and the newly established client in the “ free world”. • At the time the courts make a decision a new court date will be assigned, we communicate with the defense team and DA office as well as the treatment provider to ensure the client is actively pursuing recovery and more than likely cases can be pushed out up to 1 yr after pre-trial release. The longer the better, this gives some high profile drug cases in small towns time for the “ dust to settle” if you will and also gives the offender time to rehabilitate themselves so when the day does come for the client to be in court, we will have multiple mitigating factors as to why these charges should be lessened/dropped and a lesser sentence imposed. • After the final court date we begin to slowly remove ourselves from the clients daily affairs, for by this time they should be well established in their recovery and on the road to a happy, sober, productive way of life, as well as a asset to society rather than a burden or criminal. • In most felony cases some probation is imposed at sentencing, this should not be any big deal if the client remains clean, sober and compliant with the rules laid out by the Department of Probation, Parole and Pardons. Basically be where you are supposed to be, doing what you are supposed to be doing, and with whom you should be doing it with. Its that simple. Yet the addicted mind tends to complicate, over analyse the terms and gets engulfed in fear, fails to utilize the tools given and ends up resorting back to the old way of coping and ends up high again....and we all know from this point the places the client will end up. Jails, institutions , detox facilities and so on . RECOVERY MUST BE THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN THEIR DAILY LIVES. FOR WITHOUT RECOVERY THERE IS NO FAMILY, FRIENDS, JOB, OR FREEDOM. RECOVERY IS A LIFE LONG PROCESS. YOU ARE NOT CURED ONCE YOU GRADUATE FROM A REHAB PROGRAM. ITS A DISEASE, READY TO FLARE UP JUST WHEN THE ENVIRONMENT IS CONDUCIVE . • Alas. You and the family should continue doing all you've been taught over the last 6 months-up to 1 year and all should go well.Should the client have any unexpected related issues pertaining to the case of which we were actively involved with by all means feel free to contact us with any concerns, or questions and we will do our best to help. Call us today for more information. 866.981.2622


We are here to assist the public defenders and paid attorneys get you or your loved one the proper sentence by way of mitigation and postponement of said court dates until he or she has successfully completed a residential treatment program. There are ways to get things expedited within the court system that the person not in this field would not otherwise be aware of......We are aggressive and WE CARE HERE AT COASTAL We utilize every avenue available within the law to help ensure our clients’ goal of obtaining

detox and treatment for their loved one. We recognize you are seeking our services for primarily

two reasons: obtaining detox and treatment for your loved one and knowing, for yourself, that

you have tried every possible avenue to help them.

From the beginning of the process we will educate your loved one that their failure to comply

with recommended court ordered detox and treatment will have serious consequences. We will

utilize the court’s civil contempt powers and the threat of incarceration to enforce compliance.

Your loved one will know from the beginning should incarceration be ordered, upon release,

they must still complete all recommended treatment. It is our goal to ensure the potential consequence is available until such time that your loved one obtains the necessary objectivity to recognize their need for continued treatment.
