Congratulations on your journey into recovery!
We know that returning home can create a multitude of feelings ranging from fear to excitement and everything in between. Keeping in touch with the support system you began in treatment can be extremely beneficial, not to mention a lot of fun. On this site you can sign up to build your profile page, post your thoughts and feelings, or leave messages for alumnae. You may also keep up with what is going on at Brookhaven Retreat. This site offers information on recovery meetings, support groups, reunions... and the list will continue to grow.
We know that staying involved is part of what supports success in recovery and assists in building a life worth living. We encourage our alumnae to stay connected with outpatient providers such as an individual therapist and psychiatrist. Alumnae may also consider joining group therapy and/or support groups. As part of our Monday night aftercare/alumnae group we offer refresher sessions on the skills and concepts our clients first learned about during their stay. These skills include Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Distress Tolerance, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Healthy Boundaries, Positive Affirmations, Extreme Self Care, Journaling, Goal Setting, and the list goes on.
