Here are just a few of the success stories shared by our alumnae to express their satisfaction and gratitude for the program and to inspire other women to take the steps they did to gain control of their lives.
Dear Brookhaven Retreat, I have truly been transformed during my time here. I have learned that I am worthy of love, especially self love. I am good at my core and have a good conscience.
Dear Brookhaven Staff, Many women arrive at Brookhaven feeling overwhelmed; when I arrived I was feeling very little. There was nothing inside me but a great emptiness, tempered slightly by a desperate hope that here I would be able to break the shackles in my mind that held me bound.
I heard from one of my Brookhaven sisters back in July that many women experience doubt while in treatment. She said "For some, it's as soon as they walk through the doors. For others, it's 10 days in, and others, it's not until they have been here for almost a month..."
A letter to Brookhaven Retreat, It is hard for me to believe that I have been at Brookhaven Retreat for 30 days.
I was at the end of my rope. I needed help beyond the scope of what I could find locally.
My journey at Brookhaven Retreat has been one of pain and hope.
Dear Brookhaven Staff and Treatment Team: It's hard to believe that it has been 90 days since I arrived here at Brookhaven. There were days filled with tears and laughter, joy and pain, and many days filled with immense growth and self-discovery.
Dear Brookehaven, Wow, what a ride the last few months have been. I went from being dragged here kicking and screaming (not literally, of course) to feeling like I almost don't want to leave.
Dear Treatment Team, Once again, thank you for taking the opportunity to consider my application to level up to a White Buffalo.
Before I came to Brookhaven, my life was in a state of shambles. I had completely isolated and was broke, depressed, and angry. When my family brought me to Brookhaven, I immediately felt at ease.
Dear Treatment Team, I've continued on my journey of self-regulation and find myself growing stronger each day.
When I arrived at Brookhaven Retreat 4 months ago, I had lost every bit of hope for myself and for my life.
When I first arrived at Brookhaven, I was a very lost, scared, nervous person.
Dear Brookhaven, Through the program I have gained strength, knowledge, and the ability to protect and regulate my emotions.
Brookhaven, I’ve sat here staring at the blank page with so many things to say and no idea where to start.
