Annual Alumnae Reunion

Thursday, 18 April 2013 16:50 

On April 13, Brookhaven Retreat hosted its annual reunion at the RT Lodge in Maryville, TN. Alumnae and staff gathered to celebrate the continued path to successful recovery.

The annual reunion is an important aspect of the continued care program that facilitates healthy living and supports recovery through active alumnae participation. It gives women a chance to reconnect with peers and provides an opportunity to refresh skills and discuss recovery with Brookhaven Retreat’s staff.

The friendships created during treatment offer critical support to women overcoming mental health and substance abuse issues, and continue to play an important role throughout treatment. Because many outpatient groups discourage friendships, these connections remain important and provide women with supportive peers to gather with and discuss recovery.

A variety of classes offered at the reunion gave women a chance to refresh their skills and discuss treatment methods as they apply to life after discharge. After a 7 a.m. breakfast, women participated in mindfulness, trust, healthy habits, letting go, team building, dialectical behavior therapy, communication and self-esteem groups.

The reunion ended with a presentation by owner and founder Jacqueline Dawes and a group dinner in the evening. Alumnae and staff parted ways with the promise of reuniting again next year. Brookhaven Retreat values the opportunity to be part of its alumnae’s lives after discharge and looks forward to seeing even more of its alumnae next year.
