Brookhaven Retreat’s medical director Dr. Julia Wood gave birth to her daughter, Hannah Freedman James on May 12. On August 5, Brookhaven Retreat is delighted to welcome her back from maternity leave.
Dr. Wood’s knowledge of women’s mental health disorders, unique hormonal influencers and medication management has greatly added to the role of medical director at Brookhaven Retreat. Her experience dealing specifically with women’s issues has helped the women in its residential program overcome prescription addiction, substance abuse, depression, trauma, anxiety, borderline personality disorder and many other mental health issues.
Brookhaven Retreat was created with women’s unique mental health issues, emotional needs and life experiences in mind. Because women have such different social expectations, potential traumas and emotional needs, it is important for treatment to address these unique differences.
Because Brookhaven Retreat’s residential treatment program was specially designed to bring women’s lives back to a place of balance and wellness, Dr. Wood’s expertise is a perfect fit for its mission. Her success at Brookhaven Retreat is seen in the success of each woman who completes the program and returns home happy, healthy and ready to create a life worth living.
Brookhaven Retreat congratulates Dr. Wood on her latest addition. Both clients and staff are thrilled to welcome her back on August 5.
