Read about the ways that Brentwood was there to help.

Not only did the people at Brentwood change my son, but they changed me as a mother. It allowed me to develop an amazing relationship with my son. When we found Brentwood, I was as much in need of help as my son was. I could not have done this journey without help. Without Brentwood’s help!

By coming to Family Support meetings with an open heart, I found a support system like no others. Brentwood staff have continued to work with my son in his Recovery while I worked my own program. This has allowed us to celebrate and grow in recovery as a family. I will be forever grateful to Brentwood!

Seven years ago, I crawled into Brentwood Recovery home broken, lost, and hopeless. I weighed 89 lbs and had no self worth, full of guilt and shame. I made a lot of bad choices in my past and I never thought I deserved any forgiveness.

Today I am so passionately grateful for my new life. I have so many wonderful people in my life today. I love my family. I now have a wonderful man to share my life with. I have a great job that allows me to help others and give back. I thank God for a second chance to be the woman I was meant to be. Sober life allows me to give and receive Love. đź’– My heart is full.

Thank you to everyone who took part in my growth and supported me through thick and thin. I am truly blessed.

After 5+ years of chaos, brokenness and ER visits our 20 year old son was asking for help! They say Brentwood is a place, “Where people need people”. Our family needed the people at Brentwood. The road has been bumpy, and these great, ordinary people have been there for our son and our family bump after bump; with acceptance, understanding, experience, hope and a genuine place to belong. Supporting Brentwood is not about a program that will make us magically better. This is about supporting a place where things get real, so that things can really get better. I will forever be grateful.

Brentwood saved my life and gave my family their husband, father, son, brother and friend back. They helped me become a better person. I have been there for my wife, kids, family and friends. Now, they can count on my support and love no matter what. Brentwood taught me the importance of people in my life, service to others and to accept things as they are. The rewards of a sober life are too many to mention. Brentwood continues to be a very important part of my life. I come back to give back what I have been given.

Without Brentwood, I probably would’ve died by now. Recovery has given my family their daughter, sister and mother back to them. I never really understood why since being a little girl that I was different from everyone else. I never felt like I belonged somewhere. My heart opened here. I learned how to love others and myself. I am blessed and very lucky to be a part of Brentwood and alive. Brentwood helped me beat the odds of addiction.

I came through the Brentwood Adolescent program when I was 18. I have been sober and involved with Brentwood for 8 years now. The gifts and opportunities I have in my life today because of Brentwood are ones I never thought possible. Brentwood has given me the tools to live a life I can truly be proud of, and more importantly, the gave my parents their son back. The happiness, love and Gratitude I have in my heart today is something I would not trade for anything in the World.
