Demi Lovato’s Rehab Center: New Details
As Demi Lovato continues to receive treatment for the personal issues that forced her to abandon a tour with the Jonas Brothers, new details are beginning to emerge about the facility where the 18-year-old Disney princess is being treated.
Hollywood Life has obtained information about the center where Lovato is reportedly seeking help for a weight disorder and cutting issues. Though the name of the center is being withheld out of concern for Lovato’s safety and privacy, a source confirms that the center is located in a suburban area and caters to people suffering from “eating disorders, drug addiction, trauma, mood disorders” and issues with alcohol.
The Web site of the facility in question notes,
“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.”
The source adds,
“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.”
It was announced that Lovato had entered treatment on November 1, after reportedly getting into an altercation with a backup dancer on the tour.
