Katie Brennan

Recovery Ambassador


Katie Brennan graduated from addiction treatment at The Recovery Village Palmer Lake.  In a recent interview, she shared her recovery story, hoping to inspire others to seek the help they need:

When did you realize you wanted to get treatment?

“I experienced a withdrawal seizure on May 6, 2023. I had never been so scared. I was finally honest with people closest to me about my drinking. Their added concern and support solidified my need and desire to seek help.”

Why did you (or your loved one) choose our treatment center?

“I live in Palmer Lake so my loved ones were searching in that area. I chose PLR because of the proximity, familiarity, convenience, availability, trauma-based approach, and comprehensive treatment.”

What part of your treatment was the most helpful?

“Connecting with like-minded people, being in a safe environment, and how much I learned about the brain, body, and addiction.”

Who made the biggest difference in your recovery journey?

“Me! I also truly connected with my cohort. It made a big difference that the clinical staff was able to share their personal experiences with addiction and what the other side looks like. I learned and absorbed so much from their teachings, perspective, and guidance.”

How has your life changed after getting treatment at our center?

“I know I am on the right path! I have more energy, positivity, focus, and love for myself. I am embracing the process, being gentle with myself, continuing to do the work, and loving sobriety. It feels like I’m meeting myself and I like who she is.”

How would you encourage someone else who needs treatment?

“Treatment is worth it. You’re worth it. Yes, it is scary, uncomfortable, and vulnerable stepping into the unknown. But I promise it is more beautiful than you could imagine — the best gift you could give to yourself.”
