Castlewood Eating Disorder Treatment Center Blog

Forever grateful

"Forever grateful for an organization who took the time to believe in me when my behavior didn’t deserve believing in, understanding when I couldn’t understand myself, and hope in my future when my vision was cloudy.  Five years ago, I entered Castlewood hurt, without hope, and broken.  I knew I had an eating disorder, my body showed it, and couldn’t stop starving, or bingeing and purging on my own.  Castlewood and the staff was a safe haven for me to nourish by body, soul, and mind.  Slowly, I was able to understand the function of my eating disorder, make changes, and regain stability in my life.  My journey was not easy…it was painful and challenging at times, and in those times, my therapist and treatment team was there to support me until I was able to get back on my feet again.  I’m grateful for the months I spent at Castlewood."~MB
