New Report Shows Women Who Choose Brookhaven Retreat Have Greater Success With Recovery

SEYMOUR, Tenn. - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Women who choose Brookhaven Retreat for their mental health and substance abuse therapy treatment have a greater chance of a successful recovery than those who select other residential treatment facilities, according to new research completed for the facility by The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) at Columbia University.

According to the CASA report and survey of alumnae of Brookhaven Retreat, 73 percent said they were better able to function effectively at home or work once they completed their stay. Eighty percent had tried other treatment options prior to selecting Brookhaven Retreat, such as private therapy, drug therapy, psychosocial therapy, hospital inpatient and outpatient programs. Eighty-three percent said the treatment they received at Brookhaven Retreat was extremely helpful or very helpful in their recovery.

Located on 48 beautiful acres in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, Brookhaven Retreat offers female-specific treatment and modern, holistic care with compassion and respect from a highly trained expert female staff of licensed therapists, physicians, registered nurses and nurse practitioners. It recently earned The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval , which is awarded by this national healthcare accreditation organization to providers committed to standards for health care quality and safety, for the second time.

"Searching for a residential treatment facility can be a challenging process and it's often done during an emotional time," said Jacqueline Dawes, founder and owner of Brookhaven Retreat. "We at Brookhaven Retreat commissioned this research to discover how our approach to mental health and substance abuse therapy was performing. We are pleased to share that it is making a significant difference in the lives of our clients and their families."

As part of the survey, alumnae were asked the top three ways Brookhaven Retreat was instrumental in their recovery. Those responding listed the individual therapists and individual sessions; the environment; the activities and its unique offerings, including its recreation programs, equine-assisted therapy, outings and the Poncho program.

Brookhaven Retreat's unique Poncho program, which is a model for recovery that builds life skills and empowers individuals to prioritize their life needs in a healthy manner, received high marks from alumnae who said its sessions on identifying ways to stay emotionally and mentally healthy were extremely important to their recovery.

It is a fully accredited facility with both a mental health and a substance abuse license. For more information, call 877-817-3422 or visit www.brookhavenretreat.com.
