Over the years, we have heard countless times from our guests that anyone could benefit from and enjoy our programs. If you want what we offer, you are welcome.
Serenity Vista is not a mental health institution that provides medical care or conducts psycho social rehabilitation or psychotherapy. As a part of your retreat experience, we offer counselling that supports you achieve your goals in your life. Your dynamic full-life program will include individual and small group sharing sessions, life coaching, spiritual exploration, music, artistic expression, yoga, meditation, and horseback riding and various outdoor eco-friendly activities.
Addiction affects all aspects of a person's life and family, and it is you and your life that we help on an individualized basis. It is irrelevant whether you consider yourself as having an addiction. We are not concerned about 'labels' or 'problems'. Many who come to Serenity Vista are looking for help with codependency or addiction. But the condition or addiction itself is not the problem. We don't 'treat' diseases such as addiction. Serenity Vista is not a typical drug rehab or treatment center for alcohol addiction or alcoholism treatment. We do not "treat" addiction. We help people find serenity. Regardless of whether you may be struggling with addiction, co-dependency, or some other form of unhappiness or discontentment, you will benefit from your stay at Serenity Vista.
Regardless of your background or demographic, Serenity Vista is here for you. Discontentment, unhappiness, codependency, drug & alcohol or other addiction affect people without regard for financial, social, or legal status, skin colour, sexual orientation, religion, education or employment. Our philosophy is that ALL deserve the best that life has to offer, and the chance to grow and change their lives in magnificent ways.
We believe that all that struggle with life or continued abstinence deserve the opportunity for help and have the inherent capacity to change. It is our philosophy that all have an equal chance of an enriching life and full recovery!
Your stay at Serenity Vista will stimulate your thoughts, deepen your understanding, and help you develop a healthy expression of feelings and a balanced life-style.
Recognizing that may people simply feel 'stuck' and or like a prisoner to other people, places or things. It is our commitment to help you experience release, relief, empowerment, and excitement with the choices you come to see as yours to realize. We believe that all deserve autonomous freedom.
Foundational to the entire Serenity Vista program is the philosophy of the Twelve Step movement as characterized by Alcoholics Anonymous and Alanon The spiritual principles of openness, honesty, willingness, courage, belief, responsibility, forgiveness, respect and service are embedded throughout the program. Guests are invited to attend twelve step meetings each week. Twelve Step programs have helped millions of people worldwide live a life of recovery following, or as part of their ongoing drug rehab or addiction treatment or therapy. If you wish, we will help you establish your own twelve step fellowship of ongoing support in your home town before leaving Serenity Vista.
It is important to note that, while spirituality is explored, Serenity Vista is a retreat, NOT a religious institution, facility or program. Regardless of your religion, faith, or lack thereof, you are welcome. Spirituality is a personal exploration of how one relates with self, others, nature, and their own, private concept of a Higher Power. No one is told or otherwise directed to believe any particular concept or belief; this is about personal exploration and discovery. Your retreat offers you the chance for reflection, looking at life in new ways, and to experience how to 'live life on life's terms'.
