Approved by The Joint Commission Since 1976.
This voluntary accreditation by the Joint Commission is the primary accreditation of most
of the quality healthcare facilities in America. It assures there is a quality
assurance program, medical professional staffing, and adheres to
the highest quality of care standards. A Joint Commission approved facility is more
likely to pass provider requirements as demanded by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).

Fully Licensed Specialty Hospital.
Serenity Lane's hospital program is a fully licensed specialty hospital
that provides full medical management complete with twenty-four
hour nursing care and two full time physicians.
American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) Screening Criteria
Serenity Lane utilizes ASAM placement and continuing stay criteria
as part of its ongoing evaluation and assessment process. This includes
a thorough emphasis on screening for severe psychological or psychiatric
problems, which may prevent patients from benefiting from our services.
In these cases, referrals are made to a more appropriate resource.
Serenity Lane Provides Step Down Services.
Serenity Lane has responded to Managed Care by being the first program
in Oregon to provide a spectrum of step down services for patients.
Patients, who are determined by assessment to need hospital services
followed by residential and outpatient, can now do so within one
system. Serenity Lane has two residential
program options followed by outpatient
services which patients can use in their own community.
Quality Long Term Treatment
Serenity Lane's long term treatment program - called ExSL
- was designed for those who may benefit from an extended treatment
environment. The program's focus is on a therapeutic
community for the healing and support of recovering alcoholics/addicts
who are relapse prone. The length of the program varies with individual
needs but is a minimum of two months. ExSL is available to those
who have completed primary treatment at Serenity Lane or elsewhere.
Serenity Lane has pioneered family participation in addiction treatment.
Every program from Residential to Outpatient has intensive family
participation at no extra cost. We do it because research shows
that it contributes to better success rates. Learn
more about the Family Program.
Quality Children's Program
Serenity Lane offers a program which provides education and support
for children of recovering parents. The program provides a safe
environment where children can express their feelings, and discuss
addiction and family dynamics with their peers. Art therapy is also
used to maximize opportunities for understanding and self expression.

Extended Recovery Support

outcomes. Research has shown that sobriety rates double with patient
participation in Recovery Support. At Serenity Lane, the last 44
weeks of Recovery Support are available
for those who complete their treatment plan.
The first program in the state to start intensive outpatient
Serenity Lane's intensive Outpatient Program

Complete Patient Monitoring System at No Additional Cost.
Serenity Lane is first in providing an optional, complete Patient
Monitoring System at no additional cost. Employers, courts,
professional boards, and others are notified immediately if a patient
misses scheduled sessions so that action can be taken if necessary.
Of course, this is done with the properly signed releases in place.
This system along with monitored urine screenings provides one more
thread of support to patients who are struggling to break the cycle
Program monitoring for Continuous Quality Improvement.

across the nation.
