Castlewood staff and clients entered my life at some of the lowest moments and helped me to pull out of them. Because of my time at Castlewood, I am able to enjoy my life and safely continue on the road to recovery. Thank you all so much for helping me find the strength to continue the fight.

The therapists are absolutely amazing at Castlewood, but I believe the clients get more out of the Direct Care staff because we spend so much time with them. It is impossible not to form a relationship with amazing people you trust, and the impact they make on our lives cannot even be explained in words. I am forever grateful to the Direct Care staff for all the stuff they put up with and all they do for the clients. I just love them.
To my wonderful team who have helped save my life,
I was trying to think of the best way to thank you all, and there really aren’t words to express how truly grateful I am for the opportunity that I have had at Castlewood, and the time that each of you gave me. It was with each of your help that I was able to move forward in my journey, and really experience deep, genuine healing. Click here to read entire entry.

IFS is the most helpful therapy I have ever experienced. The expressive groups are amazing. I want to thank all the staff, the directors, therapists, nurses, direct staff, chefs, maintenance, dietitians, house keeping, and anyone I have forgotten. I truly believe I have gained so much, especially hope and a chance at a truly great future. I know I still have work to do, but I feel prepared and able to continue because of the growth Castlewood has provided to me.

I want to specifically single out a few staff members: Britt, Meghan, and Elizabeth are all absolutely AMAZING on direct care. I was/am/will continue to be thankful for their help during my time here. Words do not appropriately describe their calming, caring, and cheerful presence. Chelsea was a wonderful dietitian, but I also had an opportunity to meet with Deborah, who was specifically wonderful in helping me create goals and challenges for myself. Angie did a phenomenal job during the intake process, and was especially helpful on the date before I was admitted, when I had a mild freak out, and she worked to arrange things so that I would be certain to feel safe and comfortable upon checking in.

Castlewood has not been my first treatment center, but here, I found something for the first time: people who were willing to treat me with compassion, respect, and had a genuine interest in what I wanted and what would be most beneficial for me. They pushed and encouraged, but never forced me to do things before I was ready. I made plenty of mistakes and had lapses, but instead of being shamed, like I have been in the past, I was taught to take each situation and give myself understanding, as well as glean what I could to prevent the same errors in the future. Castlewood taught me that there are no “shoulds”: I am exactly where I am and I am allowed to feel exactly what I am feeling, and that is okay. I am okay. I am a person who deserves recovery. For the first time in my life, people have seen me, as I am, and in reflecting acceptance of this back to me, I have come to gain a better acceptance of myself, my strengths and qualities, and am confident I can be a more gneuine person in the future because of it. Although I still have a way to go on the road to reocvery, I having nothing but gratitude for me time, who freely gave their time, kindness and knowledge to help me discover and feel things about myself I didn’t know existed. I can also say I have built strong bonds in the community through skills taught by Castlewood and by daily challenging former beliefs about trust. In building relationships among other clients, I also feel more confident in my ability to apply these skills in the world.

My treatment team and staff were excellent. Kevin, Chelsea, and Dr. Q are awesome! They provided great support, encouragement, and care. Also the mentor program was very helpful. And although I dreaded the improv and expressive groups, Laura did an excellent job in making the groups safe, enjoyable, and meaningful. Everyday at Castlewood was a new learning experience. I will miss my treatment team, staff, and peers a lot! I hope to visit as a recovery speaker one day soon;).

I’m so thankful i was able to come and receive this treatment at Castlewood; it’s changed my life. I can start to actually live again.

Thank you, collectively, for everything.

I found the staff here more than knowledgeable. I found them to be interested compassionate and relentless. I could not have found the level of appreciation for life and freedom with food without the amazing people here. I learned so much more than how to eat well, I learned that there are people in the world worth trusting, and what a difference that can make. I learned about not being perfect and how much better that can make life. I learned about how to take care of my body in so many ways. I am impossibly grateful. Thank you

Thank you for being so good to me, and for helping me have hope for recovery. You’ve changed my life!

I would say that overall, hands down, Castlewood is a fantastic place. I would strongly encourage anyone who has an eating disorder and needs residential or day treatment to participate in Castlewood’s programming. Castlewood stands head and shoulders above other treatment facilities and tailor a treatment program based on the specific needs of the individual. They are very intuitive and insightful regarding the therapy process and they treat all aspects of the person. I can not highly recommend Castlewood enough.
