I entered Rosewood in Wickenburg at the age of 17. I was petrified at the thought of being in a mental facility. But I was consumed with thoughts of self-hatred. To take out the pain I carried for years because of my background I used my self-image. I was killing myself. Physically and mentally. Rosewood challenged me. They helped me see reality instead of living in my mind. I started to slowly love who I am and who I will be. I would not be alive without my team and friends at Rosewood. I chose to work with them instead of on my own. Because of my decisions I am stronger now than ever before. I am proudly in recovery. But it wasn’t easy. It still isn’t easy. But I wake up with the mindset of never giving up. I fight. Only you can make a difference in your life. Surround yourself with good people, good habits and understand that ED is an every day battle. Rosewood is the place for your son, daughter, wife, brother, father, or friend. If they are struggling and are at their last straw, save their life and get them in here. Rosewood is family orientated. It helps you learn why we do what we do and what you can do to help.
