Welcome To Casa Serena

Our mission is to provide effective treatment services and a safe, sober living environment to women suffering from the disease of alcoholism or who are addicted to alcohol and other drugs and to introduce them to the philosophy of Alcoholics Anonymous and the 12-Step process.
