A LETTER FROM CLEMENTINE NAPERVILLE’S CLINICAL DIRECTOR:

It is likely challenging to be in a place where you are reading this letter from me. To get to a place that you admit that you cannot figure this out on your own and you may need support. Clementine will empower you and your family with skills to help navigate full recovery from an eating disorder. Although it is exciting to be a teenager, as you gain independence and enter into the world it can also be nerve-wracking. It can be even more challenging when struggling with an eating disorder which can create doubt in who you are becoming.

We are here to walk along side of you and your family. We will help you work toward connecting with your healthy self and connecting with others. Living a life recovered is possible. You are not alone. You are resilient. You are strong. It would be our honor to witness your story toward believing in your healthy self again.
