Common ways to treat

Addiction is a complex disorder that takes over the three key elements to a person’s well being: mind, body & spirit. Often times, it can be used as an unhealthy coping mechanism for trauma, intense stress, emotional distress, depression, anxiety, etc.

Serenity Now looks to mind-body counselling to allow clients to have the elements of the mental and physical realms to help cope with arising concerns and challenges.

Serenity Now Wellness Centre can help you understand and overcome your addiction, where one-on-one counselling sessions are available with a certified counsellor.
