“Getting sober was one of the three pivotal events in my life, along with becoming an actor and having a child. Of the three, finding my sobriety was the hardest.” – Robert Downey Jr.
Addiction is one of the biggest threats to the prosperity of society. Addiction significantly affects both the substance users and others close to you. While men have historically been more prone to develop an addiction, women are also affected in large numbers. In recent years, the once significant disparity in overdose fatality rates between men and women has significantly narrowed. It has become even more alarming as overdose rates among women are projected to rise in the coming years. This calls for imminent actions and measures to help men and women.
Serenity Falls is making a difference in the community by teaching others about the benefits of living a sober life. A sober living facility for women of all ages, it is owned and administered by healthcare professionals with years of experience in recovery and addiction medicine. Serenity Falls’ team of professionals recognizes that loneliness and isolation are at the root of substance abuse and that the best cure is connection. Their main purpose is to establish a home-like environment where women can recover from various addictions.
The founders of Serenity Falls believe that anxiety, depression, loneliness, and isolation are universal feelings associated with substance abuse. Sober life, on the other hand, provides the opposite. Friendships that allow you to share your challenges and concerns can transform lives, and sober living attempts to provide that environment. Furthermore, scientific studies have repeatedly demonstrated that an organized living environment can improve healing rates. According to one study, structured sober living raised success rates by 600 percent compared to those not living in a sober living facility.
Fortunately, there are options for addicts who want to stay clean and stay in recovery. For those who want to live independently but in a structured and sober way, sober living homes are the ideal place. If a recovering addict is going to remain sober, they have to live in an environment free from the temptations of drugs and alcohol that also provides the coping skills learned during their treatment.
What inspires Serenity Falls is that every alcoholic or addict takes the first steps to get clean or sober. Most addicts dealing with substance abuse issues live every day with a giant hole in their chest. They are filled with so much self-doubt and anxiety that it is hard to get out of bed, let alone fix their lives. This is why the Serenity team has so much respect for anyone seeking help in such a situation. It is also a deep source of inspiration for them as they continue helping others make a difference in society.
Founded on the idea that building meaningful connections and providing empathic support is essential to recovery, Serenity Falls is on a mission to create networks and connect with other facilities to help more victims worldwide. The goal is to reach as many people as possible and help create a community of sober minds.
