Volunteers

Volunteers are the backbone of the Brentwood Recovery Home. Hundreds of Brentwood Alumni volunteer on a daily/monthly basis. These volunteers make it possible for Brentwood to focus on the core responsibility of recovery. Brentwood is fortunate to have these dedicated people who support Brentwood’s needs and help give back and assist those whom are on program.
