Review for Awakenings Treatment Center
Awakenings (Treatment Center) has been such a gift in my life.

Awakenings has been such a gift in my life. I can honestly say that I would not be here today if it were not for Awakenings Treatment Center and the 5 months I spent there. From the very first consultation call, I felt loved and embraced. Becky made the process of starting the program so seamless and gave me so much personalized attention, taking time out of her day in admissions to counsel me.

Lauren, my primary therapist at the time, helped me see the light and wisdom I innately have. She provided a much-needed safe space at a time when I wanted to run out of my body. Shari, with her unique therapeutic style, challenged me to stand up for myself and stop hurting my body.

I appreciate the diversity of approaches that Awakenings provides its clients. From neurofeedback and breath work to movement therapy, this program truly takes a holistic approach. The staff and therapists are both competent and compassionate, a rare combination in this world. I believe Awakenings is as warm and genuinely interested in the lives of their clients, because the staff have gone through their own demons and understand what it is like to fight to live each day.

With the healing they have experienced, they desire to pass it on to others. If I had to do it again, I would return to Awakenings in a heart beat. As someone struggling with self-harm, an eating disorder, and trauma, I came into the program a very scared, traumatized, and struggling young woman. I came out with the tools I needed to tackle what life throws my way.

To this day, although it has been 4 years, I still keep in touch with some staff because they have made an indelible impact of my life. Thank you Awakenings for saving me, and for showing me I was worth saving.
