Jacki Romaine Has Reclaimed Her Life, With Help From NewBridge

Jacki Romaine has made great strides in her recovery.

Jacki Romaine began self-medicating as a teenager, attempting to manage depression she first experienced in elementary school. Over the next 30 years, Jacki married, had two sons and built a successful pet-grooming business. But the depression, worsened by family traumas, plagued her.

“At times I didn’t think I was going to make it. I had no will to live,” the Wayne resident said. Jacki was hospitalized six times and had to give up her business. “I’d feel empowered leaving the hospital, only to be back in a bad place three months later,” she said. “I was always looking for the quick fix.”


“I thank NewBridge for bringing back the real me!”


The revolving door stopped when Jacki enrolled in theNewBridge Crossroads day treatment program in 2016.“I felt like I was somebody there. I felt important,” Jacki said. The 52-year-old has made great strides in her recovery. Knowing short days and cold weather affect her, Jacki attends treatment more in the winter.

“When I was at my lowest, NewBridge Services stepped in and supported me, and helped me get better,” she said. “I want to scream out loud how much I love NewBridge Services!” 

 Jacki explained, “I’m less angry and I smile more. I have hope for my future,” adding, “I thank NewBridge for bringing back the real me!”
