The Staff Really Care and Love You Until You Can Love Yourself

Rate this post

When I came to Rosewood 4 months ago, I was sick and without hope.  I had completely given up hope that I could overcome my addictions and eating disorder.  Slowly, through sobriety and proper nutrition the light started to come back on.  I realized its never too late and all it takes is honesty, open mindedness and willingness.  I made real connections with people and for the first time in years, started to love and respect myself.  The staff really cares and love you until you can love yourself.  Although everyday isn’t sunshine and roses, I’m still fighting and even my worst day in recovery is better than my best day in my disease.  ~Max P.

This Program Teaches Real Life Skills

Rate this post

“You can’t think your way into a new way of living; but rather you have to live your way into a new way of thinking.”  I heard this quote at an NA meeting I went to during my stay here at Capri.  I chose this quote because I feel like it describes my experience here at Rosewood.  This program teaches real life skills and teaches you to take changed action steps that will lead to al changed way of thinking.  My perspective on life itself has been transformed and opened up since I arrived here.  Rosewood is  an incredibly challenging and extremely  individualistic program.  Everyone works really well with you  to meet your specific needs and you can tell that the people here are not just “clocking in and clocking out” but are truly invested in your recovery.  I shed a lot of tears, went through a lot of anger and faced some of my “past demons” face to face.  I truly believe I have come out a stronger person than I came in as.  I can guarantee that you won’t regret going through this program and I can’t say enough good things about the supportive community I found here; it is unlike anything I have experienced before.  ~Kimberly R.

I Came Kicking & Screament… I am Forever Grateful.

Rate this post

I came to Rosewood to get people off my back after an intervention from friends.  I came kicking and screaming, as they say I was not a vision for you.  I was treated with amazing care, compassion and kindness.  I was a lot sicker than I thought I was.  I thought I was going home in 30 days.  Though working the program, opening up to the treatment team, and having some willingness I ended up staying for months.  Erica at the ranch and Stephanie at Capri were the first two therapists I have ever opened up to.  I had never allowed myself to trust anyone as I trusted them with my thoughts, feelings, and urges.  Rosewood gave me lots of challenges which made me grow so much.  I am going home a better person, I am not so rough around the edges anymore.  Rosewood also helped me to regain my bright personality which had been hidden for so long, I am forever grateful!  ~Hilary S.

They Come with a Loving Approach

Rate this post

Before coming to Rosewood I could not handle life on lifes terms.  I was beaten down and completely broken.  Rosewood and the amazing staff here brought me back to life.  Before coming I was trying to beat my addiction by also trying to come to terms with my eating disorder.  I always knew in the back of my head I could not stay sober unless I confronted this eating disorder.  So, off to Rosewood I went and  what an amazing choice that was.  They introduced new coping mechanisms and gave me a new experience with food.  Before coming in I was afraid of everything. Although, with the help of staff, together we challenged those food beliefs and proved them wrong. They come with such a loving approach.  It made treatment enjoyable and beneficial of course.  I had my stumbles buy they were always there to build me back up.  Thanks to Rosewood I can finally say I have a future that gets brighter each day.  ~Sierra

I Can Actually Say Like Certain Foods Now

Rate this post

My first day here at Rosewood, I can’t believe it was almost 2 months ago.  My first day here I remember I was relieved that I was away from all the craziness but overwhelmed by how many times a day I had to eat.  Then soon enough I felt trapped and frustrated and felt  I was in hell.  Little did I know I was actually in heaven.  Rosewood has saved my life and has helped me start the fight against my ED.  Especially my therapist, Rachel.  Since I’ve been here I’ve learned healthier coping skills other than restricting and purging and I can actually say I like certain foods now.  I love Rosewood.  ~Alishia

When I first came here I would have never imagined it would be like how it is.  Never this strict or this many rules but I soon found out why the program worked how it does.  It has a helpful reason to everything they do.  I appreciate all of the work the entire treatment team does in order for us to have a successful recovery.  Everyone is very nice and there for us.  The techs were great, I absolutely loved them.  They treated us more like friends buy was there also for our safety.  The community was great also.  We all supported each other and worked together.  I was treated with care.  I learned so much from here and wouldn’t change it for anything.  I will continue using all the info I have gotten here.  ~S.R.

It is Possible to Recovery 5/5 (100%) 1 vote

When I first got to Rosewood I was a quiet, shy, scared and depressed guy.  Rosewood changed that.  Rosewood has taught me that I didn’t have to settle with what I had.  I didn’t have to listen to my eating disorder.  I could be happy, I just had to fight for it.  I thank Rosewood because without it, I would’ve never found out who I was and that it is possible to recover.  ~Sam (Adolescent)

Before Rosewood, I Could Never Imagine Life Without an Eating Disorder 4/5 (80%) 1 vote

Before coming to Rosewood, I could never imagine a life without an eating disorder.  I was stuck in a terrible cycle that I couldn’t get out of my own.  Rosewood provided me with the care and support I needed to get back on my feet.  Through my stay here I have been able to build coping skills, conquer my fear foods, and work through the underlying issues.  Not only have I worked my way through the process buy I have also built strong friendships that will last a lifetime.  I am forever grateful for Rosewood, I couldn’t have done it without them.  ~C.P.
