Brookhaven came at a time in my life when I was desperate to "feel alive" vs. "merely surviving."

I will leave as a strong, courageous woman with a purpose for my life.

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.

All of you will always hold a special place in my heart.

Dear Treatment Team, Once again, thank you for taking the opportunity to consider my application to level up to a White Buffalo.
