At Brookhaven Retreat, we strongly believe that the road to recovery does not exist solely within the walls of a counseling room. The non-locked, voluntary environment allows for a wide variety of activities that target the relational, social, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs of each woman who comes through our doors.

The grounds at Brookhaven Retreat offer clients the ability to take part in a variety of outdoor activities, such as:

  • equine assisted therapy
  • gardening
  • low ropes course
  • walking
  • team sports
  • sand volleyball
  • horseshoes
  • softball
  • badminton
  • nature trails
  • fire pit

Clients at Brookhaven Retreat are also introduced to a variety of other activities that help stimulate the mind and spirit, while learning skills that may have been lost to their depression, anxiety and addiction:

  • meditation
  • journaling
  • role play
  • life appreciation
  • relationship building
  • spiritual service
  • life reconstruction (those that participate in the PonchoTM program have thirty life elements to cover)
  • artistic and other self-expression
  • dancing and music (optional)

Each client has a unique, tailored plan designed specifically for her road to recovery and may include any or all of these activities. There is no such thing as one fit for all. Each of our client's experiences may have some similarities, but each is different. We want to identify very specific needs and skill sets that the client is required to develop.
