On September 13, Brookhaven Retreat welcomes an alumna guest to its facility. The alumna, who completed Brookhaven Retreat’s program three years ago, will share her success story with women seeking mental health and substance abuse treatment. Such visits are instrumental in a woman’s recovery process.
At 11 a.m. on Friday, the alumna will discuss her recovery journey with women sharing similar issues overcoming mood disorders, grief, trauma and substance abuse. Brookhaven Retreat’s alumnae talks inspire women and communicate a hopeful message about recovery. She will share tips on what life is like after discharge, the problems she experienced reconciling life at Brookhaven Retreat with her life at home, and how to deal with the everyday challenges to recovery that inevitably arise.
Alumnae visits impart critical information on what to expect after discharge in order to prevent a jarring transition home. Armed with helpful advice, women are better able to surmount the everyday challenges that inevitably arise without compromising wellness.
Brookhaven Retreat is thrilled to celebrate its alumna’s third year of successful recovery. It is delighted that the women in its treatment facility will have the opportunity to learn from her experiences and looks forward to welcoming her back on Friday.
