Not Celebrating on Valentine's Day?
Date:2/6/2009

SEYMOUR, Tenn., Feb. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Valentine's Day is a special holiday that celebrates the love a person feels for the one closest to them. What happens when the person you love is in pain? Sometimes the only real way to show you care involves medical treatment or intervention. Choices like these, that are seemingly void of romance, are some of the hardest and most important loving gestures a person can give another. The emotional struggle of realizing a loved one needs medical help that can only be administered by a professional is a selfless gesture of compassion and support. And although Valentine's Day does not seem to be the ideal time to make such a difficult decision, this outpouring of love may be the best Valentine's gift one can offer someone in need of treatment.

"It can be terribly hard for people to watch the one they love go through the day to day struggles that addiction, depression and trauma can bring. They want to be able to fix the problems for them, but the truth is, they need specialized medical attention to help them cope with the struggles that have become overwhelming," said Jacqueline Dawes, founder and owner of Brookhaven Retreat, a multidisciplinary treatment facility for women.

Sending a loved one to a treatment center is one of the hardest decisions anyone will have to make. During the holiday, many people put off discussing the necessity of treatment. People may think that the discussion will add stress or worry, when in fact the added stress of the season may be a catalyst for further addiction or depression. Many are plagued with denial, uncertainties about the effectiveness of the program or the inability of the center to provide the individual attention their loved on deserves.

"At Brookhaven Retreat we have an incredible ratio of therapists to clients," said Dawes. "We know that every woman is someone's Valentine, and deserves to be treated with loving care. It's something that sets us apart, and something we are most proud of."
