Demi Lovato Returns To Her Treatment Center To Inspire Others
What a difference a year makes! Demi Lovato, who entered a residential treatment center last fall to deal with emotional issues, returned to Timberline Knolls over the weekend to provide moral support to women who find themselves struggling with similar problems.
“I went back to the treatment center I went to last year, to speak to the beautiful women fighting their inner demons,” the singer-actress tweeted Sunday. Lovato, who said she was “honored to be able to share my story and let them know that it gets easier,” also admitted “many tears were shed and many memories were brought back” during the “inspiring day.”
Since her release in January, the 19-year-old has been open about her struggles with bulimia and cutting, as well as bipolar disorder. Along with Seventeen magazine and the Jed Foundation, she’s been working on the “Love Is Louder Than The Pressure to be Perfect” campaign in hopes of helping other teens safely cope with emotional problems.
Lovato also encouraged her fans on Twitter to “say a prayer for all of those struggling with eating disorders, self harm, mood disorders, and substance abuse,” a request that earned some kudos from her A-list pal, Eva Longoria. “So proud of you Demi,” the “Desperate Housewives” star tweeted.
