The nursing team serves as the front line of the medical team. Nursing staff is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week in order to assist with the medical needs of our clients. Nursing works together with the psychiatrist and other medical staff in order to provide clients with the best possible care. Nursing staff provides clients with education about medications and healthy habits, dispenses medication, closely monitors clients who are undergoing detoxification or medication changes and treats our clients with compassion.
Many members of our nursing staff have been with us at Brookhaven Retreat for years- since the start of our program. Our nursing staff combines expertise in medical settings with the mental health field in order to bring the foremost in psychiatric treatment to our clients.
