The WestCare Nevada Serenity Program is a therapeutic community designed to meet the specific needs of women 18 years and older in a residential setting.
The Serenity Program is designed to meet the specific needs of women 18 years and older in a residential setting. This program gives the women the opportunity to accept responsibility, problem solve, build self-esteem and respect themselves and others. Treatment is based on a gender-responsive modified therapeutic community model. This model embraces the concept that behavioral change can occur though positive peer support and peer pressure. In conjunction with individual and group counseling, seminars, lectures, education and self-help support groups, a client learns that destructive behavior is self-defeating and works on issues that will diminish this behavior as well as reinforce positive lifestyle choices. This model represents a highly structured environment with well-defined attitudinal and behavioral boundaries. The model employs community responsibility, as well as earned progressive advancement of status and privileges, as part of the recovery and growth process.
At WestCare Nevada our team of assessment and intake staff works together with each individual person to help determine the most appropriate course of treatment and available resources. The assessment is the initial step in the treatment placement process.

WestCare makes referrals to veteran-specific resources, such as the Veterans' Administration and U.S. Vets to ensure that every veteran we serve has a plan of care specific to his or her needs.
