Rosewood Saved My Wife’s Life

August 5, 2011 is a date I will always remember. That is the day I drove my wife to Rosewood and forever changed, not just her life, but multiple other lives as well. Even though her stay was just 30 days, the things she learned about herself and about ED, the support she received, and the time we both spent working on things during Family Week, have led to a much stronger woman, wife, and mother. Although she still struggles occasionally, she no longer hides from ED, but rather confronts it head on. Her openness about her struggles has allowed other people with similar issues to open up to her in ways that have led to healing. I truly believe that without the grace of our Lord in Heaven, and the staff at Rosewood being placed in our lives at such a pivotal point, my wife might not be here today. We have 3 beautiful children to prove that recovery is possible. I owe so much to Rosewood for taking care of my wife that a mere “thank you” doesn’t seem enough. Rosewood has not only led to a healthier life for my wife, but the tally of lives that my wife has been able to touch as a result of her time there is increasing daily. God bless what you do every day! ~ Ryan, Husband of a Rosewood Alum
