|History of Serenity Lane
Serenity Lane was established as a
private, not-for-profit treatment center for alcoholism and drug
abuse in 1973 by Dr. Thomas A. Kerns. Sam Graves of Heartview Foundation,
Mandan, North Dakota, was recruited to direct the Serenity Lane
program. Serenity Lane has been licensed as a specialty hospital
treating addiction since 1973 and all programs are accredited
by CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities). We are the only treatment center in Oregon
that is fully licensed as a specialty hospital to do medical withdrawal support. We have
a professional medical staff and 24-hour nursing care.
Serenity Lane has pioneered many new programs over the years,
including outpatient and residential step-down programs which combine
residential and outpatient services. Serenity Lane has outpatient
programs in many locations throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington. Serenity Lane's quality
treatment of patients and their families is legendary.
Serenity Lane has had the only Addiction Counselor
Training Program in the State of Oregon and we have graduates working
in many treatment programs throughout the United States. Many of
our counselors and physicians have been recognized for national
honors. Our rigid adherence to qualifications and the longevity
of our staff make Serenity Lane one of the premier treatment centers
for alcohol and other drug problems. These attributes, combined
with comparatively modest pricing, make Serenity Lane a desirable
program for many patients and their families.
