Building Homes and Hope
Serenity Springs Recovery Center and Southeast Volusia Habitat for Humanity have teamed up to build and rehabilitate homes, while at the same time building hope for both deserving families and recovering addicts.
“The disease of addiction thrives on self-centeredness. This is a way for these gentlemen to give back,” said Serenity Springs owner, Jim Marshall. The group of volunteers from the facility will lend their time and talents every other Thursday at Habitat work sites.
“It felt good doing something I had never done before,” shared a volunteer. “I took pride in my work, knowing I had done something good for someone else. It wasn’t about me. And I learned a lot about painting!”
Serenity Springs Recovery Center, located on 10 acres in Edgewater, is an all-male drug and alcohol treatment facility that is best described as a “spiritual sanctuary.” It provides healing through a twelve step foundation of recovery utilizing licensed therapists and daily group counseling sessions with a staff to patient ratio of 1:2. Individual treatment provides the framework for each client to successfully transition back to his home, work and family with a new found self-esteem, direction and spiritual connection.
