    "I do want you to know that I have only the best things to say about Hidden River. You are one of the only programs that I know that was stronger than my eating disorder, and I was super impressed that you never gave into my eating disorder even when I was being super bratty."

    - EJ

    "I want to thank you so much for providing my daughter with such an effective and comprehensive program as well as a caring and supportive environment. She has learned and grown so much in the last six weeks. She feels confident and ready to come home. She’s also very sad about leaving her therapist, who has taught us both so many valuable skills. We are forever grateful for this experience and know that my daughter’s future is so much brighter having gone through this program."

    - AJ

    "Hidden River truly changed my life. I was seen as more than just an eating disorder- I was a person whose overall health and wellness was sincerely cared about. They saw me as someone that I couldn’t even see myself as, and they helped me gain my life back. I’m now living in a way that I didn’t even know was possible. No one wants to be in treatment, but I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I can’t say enough good things about Hidden River."
