Jacqueline Dawes began her career as a very successful developer of assisted living facilities. After losing her daughter to ecstasy use and then losing her husband a year later, she struggled to get back on her feet emotionally. Through her own determination, she followed her passion to help other families prevent the same sort of loss she experienced. After relocating to East Tennessee, her development background and skills enabled her to redevelop an old smokehouse on a family farm into a 16,000 square foot state-of-the-art treatment facility. Hiring the best clinical staff and sparing no expense or attention to detail, Jacqueline is living her dream - helping women reclaim their lives and take control of their bodies and spirits.

Our mission at Brookhaven is underpinned by the belief that there is never addictive behavior without emotional breakage. Women need a multi-track program which closes down the noises of life to hear the voice of their own interior person. Upon listening to their own inner voice during this profound journey of introspection with the assistance of a range of clinical professionals, a clear identification process must begin.
The following is based on a combination of Surveys of Alumni, Staff, Loved Ones, and Reviews and Ratings from around the web.
Reviews at a Glance
The detoxification process can be painful and debilitating. At Brookhaven Retreat we have a medical detox unit that is able to expertly address the extreme risks for certain client groups. Our number one priority is to keep our clients physically and mentally safe and absolutely as comfortable as they possibly can be through one-on-one care.
While in residential treatment you will go on a journey of self-exploration along with full medical diagnosis and support. As women we are often taught not to listen to ourselves, but rather to the needs of others and our community. We know depression destroys self-esteem and confidence. Guilt and shame are one of the reasons many women do not get the correct help for the illness of depression and yet when we begin to listen to ourselves and trust our own emotions we find hope.
