Serenity Centre welcomes and admits adults from all walks of life without any descrimination in regard to gender, ethinicity, spiritual or social political affiliations.
These are services offered prior to a client arriving at the centre. It involves motivating the client/ Client’s family seeking help from Serenity Centre to take up the program for treatment. It may be done through physical visits at the Centre, making phone contact, emailing or other social media platforms like WhatsApp.
It is the first contact with the clients that involves orienting them about the services offered.
The admission process begins the moment a client comes or is brought to the Centre. It is a 5 step process involving
- Being received at the gate,
- Initial Assessment of the client to ascertain their suitability for the program,
- Drug screen test to establish the drug of abuse in the system,
- Completing administrative processes like signing of the contract for admission by the sponsor and fees payments; And

N.B With the current Covid-19 situation, all incoming clients undergo a mandatory covid-19 test and are isolated for at least the first 3 days of stay at the Centre under close monitoring.
Our admissions team is comprised mainly of the Security personnel on duty, Psychchiatric Nurse on Duty and/or Counsellor and Administrators.
