Programs and Therapies: Phases of Recovery

The phase system is designed to help clients gain the necessary skills to achieve and maintain goals, as well as helping them keep track of what has been accomplished and what?s left to achieve. Rewards and benefits such as hair styling and make-up, larger rooms, phone and television privileges, and independent outings are provided during each phase.

Women entering Brookhaven Retreat may be extremely sick upon arrival. Close-care quarters in the detoxification unit allows medical staff to monitor the clients and be sure their medical needs are being met. During a client's time at Brookhaven, they progress into higher phases of the program taking greater steps of independence. Toward the end of the program, women move into their own private, locked room with exterior doors to help simulate life after they leave the facility.
