After much speculation it has been reported the 18-year-old Disney star is attending a private suburban treatment center for her issues with a weight disorder and cutting.
Following over a week of searching and speculation, Demi Lovato‘s treatment center has finally been located in a suburb, whose name and location we are withholding for the actress and singer’s safety. A source confirmed the location to HollywoodLife.com and told us, “Demi is dealing with different challenges everyday, she knows she needs help and she is committed to her treatment. There is no time frame on treatment at this point.”
The private center she is attending specifically deals with eating disorders, drug addiction, trauma, mood disorders and alcohol treatment.
The center’s website said this of their programs, “Residential treatment provides women with a supportive and powerful peer group who understand the emotional challenges of recovering from anorexia nervosa, bulimia or binge eating disorders. By living together with continuous therapeutic support, residents learn to practice making healthy decisions when they experience feelings that accompany their eating disorder. A woman will learn to be mindful of feelings like anxiety, fear or shame, and to experience them in ways that won’t compromise the joy in her life. Long-term immersion in this recovering community builds a woman’s confidence that she can practice recovery skills when she returns to her home, or to another less structured living environment. Like a person in recovery from substance abuse, drug addiction or alcoholism, a woman with an eating disorder can realize the full joy and beauty life has to offer.”
It was announced Demi would be seeking treatment Nov. 1 for problems dealing with a weight disorder and cutting. She immediately left the South American tour she was on with the Jonas Brothers to return to the states.
It looks like she has chosen the perfect location to get well.
