Serenity Grove Music Therapy and Meditative Yoga and WritingProject led by Women for Recovery, Serenity Grove
About the project.
Located just outside the city of Athens, Serenity Grove is a Level 2 transitional recovery house for women struggling with substance use disorders. Women come to Serenity Grove to learn to live independently, to heal, and to gain back their lives. Built on seven wooded acres in the Ohio countryside, Serenity Grove is open to women who have completed an inpatient treatment program and/or who have at least 30 days clean.
The weekly opportunities for Music Therapy and Meditative Yoga sessions utilize experience, research, and knowledge to provide professional and beneficial services for each resident. These sessions are offered on-site each week and have allowed residents to better cope with the stress and uncertainty of COVID-19 in physical, mental, and emotional ways. The opportunity to appropriately handle the stress and uncertainty of these times directly supports the goal of helping residents to maintain abstinence from drugs and alcohol by finding and developing effective coping skills. Women for Recovery finds it imperative to provide meaningful services to residents on-site as much as possible during the ongoing health crisis.
Funding would support extending these services for 52 weeks.
