A triumphant Demi Lovato returned to the ‘Timberline Knolls‘ rehabilitation centre in Illinois yesterday.
She entered the facility in October 2010 (after an altercation with a backing dancer) for three months, and received treatment for an eating disorder and self-harming. Her job yesterday was to speak to the current patients, and to “let them know that it gets easier”.
She tweeted about how emotional she was upon her return: “Wow what an inspiring day… Many tears were shed and many memories were brought back at ‘Timberline Knolls‘ today. Today I went back to the treatment center I went to last year, to speak to the beautiful women fighting their inner demons… was so honored to be able to share my story and let them know that it gets easier. Life is beautiful…. You are worthy of it. Please say a prayer for all of those struggling with eating disorders, self harm, mood disorders, and substance abuse.”
Family friend Eva Longoria responded saying how proud she is of her, to which Demi replied “thank you mama, love and miss you.”
Amazing how far she’s come in just a year.
