I Decided to Be In The Moment & Go With The Program, Surrender 100%

I Decided to Be In The Moment & Go With The Program, Surrender 100% 5/5 (100%) 1 vote

I spent 80 days between the Ranch and Capri. When I arrived at the Ranch, I didn’t want to be there and didn’t understand why I was considering. “I don’t have an ED.” Three days after I arrived at the Ranch, I decided to just give the program a chance, taking what I could and leaving the rest. I started learning so much about myself and why I was using substances to alter my mood. I decided to be in the moment and go with the program, surrender 100%. This was the best decision I ever made. Over those 80 days, I reached deep inside and dealt with a lot of issues, some I didn’t even know I had. My 80 days went faster than I thought. The staff, therapists, dietitians, nurses, everyone from the top down are incredibly helpful and kind. They were always willing to go above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and my needs were met. I would recommend this place over and over again. If I needed to go back to treatment (lets all hope I don’t), I would come back to the Rosewood system. ~ Regan

Group Therapy Was Very Helpful for My Recovery

Group Therapy Was Very Helpful for My Recovery 4/5 (80%) 1 vote

When I first came to Rosewood, I wasn’t wanting any help. I trusted my ED and it was one of my best friends. But when I realized that my ED just wanted to kill me, I started working everyday to crush my ED. The group therapy was very helpful for my recovery. The nurses, staff and treatment team were very welcoming when I first came. I am thankful for Rosewood and grateful for them helping me build my way up to recovery. ~ Alexis

I am Beginning to Measure Myself Not in Pounds But in Strength

I am Beginning to Measure Myself Not in Pounds But in Strength 3/5 (60%) 1 vote

I’m that girl who you would never think to have an eating disorder. Before Rosewood I would have called you crazy to say I do. As a kid, growing up wasn’t the best experience for me. I lived in a very abusive household with a single mom and my sister. My mom was an alcoholic/drug abuser, so there was always tension in the house about that. My mom was in and out of jail and when the court found out about my dad sexually abusing me and my sister, he split. I was put into foster care and later adopted with my sister. Growing up in a different environment was better but confusing. I developed a habit of keeping my emotions inside. My late teen years was when I started showing my pain through my actions. At 15 years old I was starving for some emotion to come back. That is where it has gotten me today. I am now 17 years old. I came to Rosewood on January 29th 2014. I worked with my treatment team to fight against what has controlled me for years. I am not “recovered” but I can honestly say with Rosewood, I now have a ground to build my recovery on. It’s progress, not perfection. I am beginning to measure myself not in pounds but in strength, and sometimes smiles. ~ Breanna O.

As Long As I Stay Recovery-Focused I Will Always Be on the Right Track

As Long As I Stay Recovery-Focused I Will Always Be on the Right Track 5/5 (100%) 1 vote

Coming here I’m not going to lie, I was really rebellious. I was in denial and didn’t even realize it. But as the days went by I really did realize I had an eating disorder. As the weeks went by I got all the help I needed to get help. It is amazing how much this place has really helped me. It has also taught me that no recovery is perfect. I will still struggle but as long as I bounce back and stay recovery-focused I will always be on the right track. ~ Amber

I Gave it My All, Worked HARD, & Found My Way to Self-Love.

I Gave it My All, Worked HARD, & Found My Way to Self-Love. 5/5 (100%) 1 vote

I came here with little hope and even smaller amount of self-esteem. I was resistant at first, but I ate 100% since day one, fought my hardest, went through ups and downs. I even struggled with staff. I just got my discharge date today and I’m a completely changed, healthy person. I gave it my all, worked HARD, and found my way to self-love. I like the staff – all of them! Even the ones that were initially hard on me, I appreciate. I actually love Rosewood and everyone here. Keep your head up and keep trying hard. Treatment doesn’t last forever, I promise. It’s worth it. You’re worth it! ~ Emily D.

I Am Forever in Debt to Rosewood for Keeping Me Alive

I Am Forever in Debt to Rosewood for Keeping Me Alive 4/5 (80%) 1 vote

I have been battling with my ED for a year and a half now, been to the hospital for heart failure, been in OP, then IOP, starved myself to bones and relapsed twice, resulting in a close attempt at suicide with pills. I had given up on recovery, my higher power, and about everyone in my life – even me. This is where Rosewood came into my life. I thought I was done for, but somehow I got through my first week with the help and support from the treatment team and my peers. Everyday I got stronger and stronger, fighting against my urges and bad body image. Support was 24/7 from my peers and whoever else could give it to me. And for that I’m forever in debt to Rosewood for keeping me alive. ~ Nichole

Rosewood Helped Me Through a Very Complex Disease

Rosewood Helped Me Through a Very Complex Disease 5/5 (100%) 1 vote

When coming to Rosewood, I honestly had no idea what to expect. This was my first treatment center and my eating disorder was finally subsiding. As I went through treatment, I was given a surplus amount of tools to utilize on my road to recovery, from lectures to the staff. It was more than helpful. They helped me through a very complex disease and as I cross the finish line to recovery I cannot be more grateful. ~ Matt

Family Week Was Draining But It Was Eye-Opening & Emotional

Family Week Was Draining But It Was Eye-Opening & Emotional 5/5 (100%) 1 vote

I have to say a big thank you to all of the staff at Rosewood for being there for my husband through this hard time, for accepting him in the group! Before he ended up at Rosewood we were so upset and frustrated [because] most centers only accepted women and girls. To know he was welcome with open arms is the most comforting feeling for me. We are from Pittsburgh so for him to be all the way across the US was so scary, and I thought of a scary movie where he would be treated badly and I wouldn’t be able to get a hold of him!! I know it’s silly but that was my fear! We all know I watched too many scary movies as an adult!! When we came for family week I was ever so thankful that I could have shared this week with him and my in laws! I would recommend family week to anyone and everyone! It was draining but it was eye-opening and emotional. You realize, “WOW! my loved one has been hurting and hiding all of this,” and you learn to deal with the emotions and learn to communicate better and effectively!

My husband is coming home on Tuesday and I feel like a child on Christmas!! I want to thank all of you from Matt Miller to Billie and Stephanie, to the drivers and all of the care takers for taking care of my other half while I couldn’t!! I will always be so thankful for all of you! ~ Tracy Miller (Spouse of Robert M.)

I Spent 30 Yrs Of My Life Burying Emotions, Hiding My Compulsive Overeating

I Spent 30 Yrs Of My Life Burying Emotions, Hiding My Compulsive Overeating 5/5 (100%) 2 votes

Hello, I came to Rosewood on December 18, 2013 a very broken man, and my life was in complete shambles. I walked into the inpatient program at 8am a very frightened and confused man not knowing how my life got to this point. I was welcomed with open arms and my mind was put at ease. At 8:30am I said my tearful good-bye to my wife, Tracy, not having a clue when I would see her again. I sat there for about 45 minutes and cried my eyes out and thought to myself “what am I doing here?” As I was sitting on the couch in the main living house, on of the patients came up to me and introduced themselves and said, “Welcome!” I felt a huge relief come over me, because for the first time in my life I felt accepted; I knew then and there I had made the right choice. Prior to coming to Rosewood, I spent 30 years of my life burying my emotions, hiding my compulsive overeating from my loved ones, obsessing about food and ruining my happiness. My life was out of control and I had ballooned to a record 500 lbs. I became anti-social; I pushed away my friends, and hurt my loved ones. The first day of programming, I was extremely worried that I would not relate to anyone in the program since I was the only compulsive overeater. The very first class I attended was dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and I tell you it was life changing listening to this idea of therapy. The regimen of therapy at Rosewood helped me realize a lot of positive things about myself and I am grateful for that. The programming at Rosewood helped me confront my demons head on, and I am extremely thankful they took the time to listen to my plea for help and accept me into their program. I truly believe this was my last chance at life, and know that I would not have lasted much longer if not for Rosewood. If anyone has a doubt about coming to this program please contact me at: Robmiller1973@yahoo.com and I will be glad to talk to you personally. ~ R.M.

Rosewood’s program has taught me more than I ever knew was possible. They helped guide me to my path of recovery after 10 years of my eating disorder. The Rosewood community is incredibly supportive and has helped guide me through the ups and downs of fighting my eating disorder. I’m deeply grateful for all I’ve learned here, and being able to break my 10 year battle with bulimia and anorexia. I would encourage anyone struggling to go through Rosewood’s program and make a decision that can change your life – to discover who you truly are without an eating disorder and how wonderful life can be. ~ C.V.

I Stopped Hating Myself & Identified My Real Personality

I Stopped Hating Myself & Identified My Real Personality 4/5 (80%) 1 vote

I came to Rosewood unexpectedly. Although I had already been in treatment for a long period of time, I was court mandated to come. I was not eager and unwilling. The thing [that helped me] to open up was the community and the therapists. Being honest allowed me to learn about my issues and how to work on them. I became significantly less codependent and found that I no longer had fear or guilt about eating. I began to work on my past trauma and issues. I stopped hating myself and identified my real personality. ~ Quinn
