Sober Living Program Criteria 

Pathway to Serenity provides its residents with a safe, supportive environment, a clean and positive living experience based on sobriety, and a new way of living without the use of drugs or alcohol.  Guided by the 12-Step Program of Alcoholics Anonymous, along with our house structure, we cultivate personal as well as spiritual growth in each of our residents. We welcome those who sincerely wish to take action in their sobriety and recovery.
