Our agency facilitates programs and camps for young people to help foster healthy coping skills and resilience. We also host workshops for adults who are in recovery, seeking to support someone in recovery, or in need of support for themselves to cope with a loved ones addiction. Our approach is family-centred. We offer services to support the whole family in growing healthy together."

    The Our Kids review of Serenity Renewal

    our take

    Addiction can play a harrowing role in the lives of those affected by it. Kids, in particular, but also the entire family unit, can benefit from support and education when family members have addiction issues. Serenity Renewal has been making an impact on those affected by addiction for over 40 years. They offer short-term counseling, as well as workshops and programs in a safe space, in hopes of improving the well-being of those who are affected. Helping their participants cope with what they are dealing with is the first priority, but also facilitating growth and communication, so the participant feels heard and is supported. All programs are evidence-based, meaning they have research to back up their methods. For young kids, storytelling and puppets are a safe and non-intimidating way to teach kids the skills they need to deal with the difficult situations they are facing. The staff at Serenity Renewal are empathetic and skilled mental health professionals who are passionate about helping families understand and heal.
