Through child’s eyes

Being on holiday dinner as a child is something very different from being there as an adult, something you easily forget when to enjoy themselves and have a good time on vacation.

To know what Lukas (6) noticed while on holiday dinner with his parents, move around (left and right) on this Youtube video.

Portrait of an Addict

“This is a spiritual (not religious) program. SerenityStar grew from the need for sustainable recovery. Many of us in this program have spent a lifetime getting clean and losing it. We began to look at what did not work for us and then filled the holes in our program giving birth to SerenityStar Recovery. We are not a treatment center. We are a group of recovering addicts and alcoholics who are working a 12 Step program and have been called into purpose. The purpose of offering our experience, strength and hope to the next addict who wants recovery.

SerenityStar is a 6-month to 1 year program – That means you can stay as long as you need to in order to get recovery and keep it. We are different because we put your recovery back into your hands. We are not responsible for your growth or healing – you are – but we will show you what has worked for us and give suggestions on how to live differently.”
