They saved me and gave me the precious gift of life...
Upon entering Denver Health‘s ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders I was at my lowest point. I had hit rock bottom and knew I could no longer continue this perpetuating, terrifying cycle of restricting, overexerting and self-destruction. It was killing me and I knew it was time to seek treatment. It was time to choose between life and death and I wanted life more than anything. After doing extensive research I came across Denver Health and immediately knew this was the place for me to start my journey towards health. They saved me and gave me the precious gift of life. Without them I stood no chance in surviving.
This is a state of the art facility and I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to work with this team of professionals. They are so knowledgeable have the best doctors and staff in the world.
I know that entering the hospital is terrifying but the staff at ACUTE deserve to be acknowledged for their hard work, compassion, leadership, dedication and sincerity to their professions. They are all so insightful, real, kind, genuine, and trustworthy with positive attitudes and radiate with unconditional love, empathy and warmth. They make the transition as easy as possible.
The staff is caring, attentive and would go above and beyond to make sure that my needs were met. Every one of the staffs presence would light up the room. They are committed to helping individuals move forward and overcome the challenges in life. They addressed my needs promptly and with love and affections I desperately needed. Their hugs and encouragement meant the world to me. The staff here are all one in a million...angels in disguise. They take time to listen with open arms and always said the right things at the right time. They helped me put things into perspective and taught me patience and persistence pays. They encouraged me through the trying and turbulent times without passing judgment and never treated me like a number on a scale. They treated me as a human with a heart, soul and spirit. They never gave up on me even when I felt like throwing in the towel and giving up on myself. They would cheer me on, and offer such inspirational words of wisdom that I'll always remember and keep close to my heart. They helped me to ultimately surrender control to the disorder and be at peace. I came in guarded...wearing a mask and they helped me slowly uncover the mask, open up, be myself, blossom, and released me from my lonely prison.
Their small facility offered individualized treatment which was great and very much appreciated. They showed me I'm capable of recovery and gave me glimmers of hope.
I have nothing but the utmost respect for program and staff from the doctors to the nurses to the dieticians to the CNAs to the sitters. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is currently seeking treatment. I feel blessed to have such extraordinary professionals be a part of my journey of health. This is such a safe place to start recovery!
