It has been nearly 35 years since Brooke lived at St. Monica’s. Today she is a psychologist who specializes in addiction among women and veterans with PTSD. She has spent a lifetime paying forward the gift of recovery.
"I was sober for three years, then came back for additional treatment for depression. St. Monica’s helped me get my life back on the road to recovery by giving me extra counseling, support and guidance in my early years of sobriety. Ellen, Pat and Bess were very committed to helping women in recovery. St. Monica’s is simply a haven for women who want to heal and change their lives."
