Education Director Denise Achee: Hi! So it’s your last day…
Chloe: Yes it is. I’m so excited to go home!
Denise: How many days have you been here?
Chloe: I’ve been here 118 [days] today.
Denise: Wow! And tell me would you like to share with us why you came here?
Chloe: Well, I had really bad depression and I had really bad family problems. I self-harmed and had anorexia and bulimia. I tried to kill myself multiple times and I have a problem with alcohol.
Denise: Wow and how…tell us about how your treatment went?
Chloe: It went amazing. It went…like this isn’t the first place I’ve been but it went like really better than I could have hoped for. I actually can look in the mirror and say I love myself today, which is something that I couldn’t do when I got here. I don’t feel like I have to starve myself or hurt myself. I am happy. My family problems…you know I’m going home to live with my grandma now instead of my parents which is great and you know, I don’t need alcohol to make me a happy, fun person or to cover up any of my problems.
Denise: Well Chloe we are so proud of you and we wish you all the luck.
Chloe: Thank you
Denise: Please keep in touch.
Denise: We’d love to hear from you. Please come back and speak.
Chloe: I definitely will.
Denise: Alright, thank you so much!
Chloe: Thank you!
