From a Patient

"“I just wanted to thank you for everything that you’ve done for me while I have been in PHP and POP — especially your hugs. But really, I couldn’t have done it without you and your constant support and encouragement. You really believed in my ability to overcome my eating disorder and because you believed in me, I believed in me… and, so here I am. Thank you, thank you so much for setting me free. Please know that you’ll always have a very special place in my heart.”
