At Serenity Knolls, we treat addiction for both alcohol and drugs. Dual diagnosis – depression, anxiety and other psychiatric disorders – which may lead to relapse and threaten long-term sobriety are addressed. We work with our clients as they begin their journey to a new and fulfilling sober life.
Detox.net is a third-party resource for consumers seeking addiction treatment. We list thousands of treatment providers throughout the U.S., often including alumni and staff ratings and reviews, and editorial reviews that provide valuable information for people making difficult decisions. Detox.net is not influenced in regards to its ratings or reviews by any treatment center or its sponsors, and we clearly designate advertiser relationships with "Sponsor" or "Ad" or "Advertisement”.

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.More
