- Weekend Family Program
Chemical dependency affects not only the person addicted, but it impacts the lives of everyone close to the substance abuser. The Family Program at Serenity Knolls was created for spouses, friends, adult and adolescent children, or for anyone involved with the recovering person. This program takes place every weekend to assist both the person in recovery and their family and friends adjust to a new way of living. A variety of educational and group participation sessions are held every Saturday.

Mike Neustadt - Founder
Mike Neustadt was born in Chicago. At age 21 he was the youngest person ever given membership to the commodities exchange. However, he lost this opportunity due to his drinking. His love of sports and his leadership capabilities allowed him a career as a college level basketball coach in the Midwest. He was highly successful coaching, but alcohol took this from him as well. He entered treatment in 1983 with 35 cents in his pocket. Mike and his wife Louise opened Serenity Knolls in May of 1990 with the sole purpose of helping other alcoholics and addicts achieve sobriety.
