Addiction Treatment By Women For Women: The Brentwood House
Liana Unger, MSW, Brentwood House Program Coordinator: “Here women learn to find their own voice.”
Lindsay Jacobs, MFT, Assistant Program Coordinator: “There is such great energy here. The women all support each other, more than in co-ed situations. They really open up here.”
Dr. Miriam Hamideh, PhD. Clinical Pschologist: “For some, an all-women’s facility provides a more intimate and safer place to talk about trauma and certain women’s issues.”
Dr. Katya Techentin, PsyD, Clinical Psychologist: “Women tend to gravitate to men for safety because most are afraid of other women,. Here we see older clients becoming substitute mom’s for younger women. I’ve never seen that dynamic in any other place.”
Robin Steinberg, MFT, Clinical Therapist: “By taking men out of the equation, women have more of an opportunity to explore their internal world.”
