Serenity Centre (SC) is a treatment and rehabilitation facility for individuals affected by alcohol and substance abuse, guided by gospel values. It provides inclusive holistic (bio psychosocial-spiritual) approach to treatment that is not discriminatory towards religion, race, and gender in Uganda and beyond. It envisions "A World Free From Substance Use Effects".
The Centre evolved from different initiatives resulting from the pastoral work of the founding congregations in Uganda: (Mill Hill Missionaries; Missionaries of Africa; the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) and Congregation of Holy Cross). This was a result of the necessity to respond to the challenge of alcoholism and substance abuse affecting many individuals, families, the clergy, religious and a whole lot of people.
The idea of offering professional assistance was blessed by the Episcopal Conference and established on 21st August 2001 (over 22 years ago) as the Pioneer and a Catholic founded not-for-profit non-governmental organization.

We are so grateful our son had the opportunity to be at Serenity Centre. He had struggled for multiple years with cannabis and alcohol abuse. He had lost his way through life and had tried several addiction treatment programs, but all in vain till we found Serenity. It's now ten years since his full healing.
Serenity Centre was referred to us by a very distant relative. After countless relapses, we decided to send there our daughter the moment she completed Senior 6. The girl we dropped off one January was not the same as we picked up 120 days later. She was sober and thriving until this day.
I was admitted to Serenity Center after doing over 18 months in jail. It only took me 6 months at the Center to have improved and later healed physically, mentally, and emotionally. The relationship I have today with my husband, children and parents is far better than ever! From the bottom of my heart, thanks.
I want to thank Serenity Centre and the whole staff. From admissions to the Professionals, therapists and all the great people there that really did care and saved my life. I have and would again, over and over, recommend Serenity Centre to anyone, and thank them everyday in my thoughts for their goodness.
Creating a world free from substance use effects
