Just detox, treatment or primary care alone are not enough for long term recovery success.  The Hansen Foundation Residences, Serenity Estates and Serenity Houses, provide affordable, long-term, home-like atmosphere and necessary recovery support.

When Residents enter our doors, they typically have overwhelming life issues to overcome.  Whether it be facing legal issues, regaining a driver’s license, getting custody of their children back or simply learning how to do laundry, food shop, cook and clean….. WE HELP!  Our recovery residences have had overwhelming success in providing recovering men and women with the tools necessary to gain back their lives.

The longer an individual can stay in recovery housing and be engaged in a recovery community, the better their chances are for successful sustained recovery.  Recovery housing is a BIG part of this.  We recommend our residents stay in our recovery housing from 6-18 months following treatment.  Our Recovery Support Staff meets people where they are on their recovery path and help them identify and achieve their life goals.

True friends are made in our recovery homes.   Residents become families and this means everything when starting your recovery journey.

According to the 2017 study by the Walter Rand Institute for Public Affairs (WRI), Rutgers University–Camden, over 70% of the people who come through the Hansen Foundation’s Serenity House are and remain clean after one year.
