Eating Disorder Treatment Services
A Note From Amy Grabowski, Founder and Director of The Awakening Center:
For more than 30 years, I have been helping clients discover a healthy balance, a feeling of purpose, and a sense of inner peace. When I founded The Awakening Center in 1994, there were no outpatient eating disorder treatment programs in Chicago. I am proud to say The Awakening Center has become nationally recognized and respected for providing a unique “user friendly” treatment approach that focuses on the individual needs of each client.
Having experienced recovery myself, I can empathize with the difficulties clients face during recovery. Eating disorders are not about food, eating or weight, but rather stem from a lack of a sense of ‘Self’ which causes one to feel empty, disconnected and out of control of life.
Using a holistic approach my staff and I will work with you to challenge your Eating Disorder from all aspects of your life: emotionally, nutritionally, cognitively, behaviorally,
interpersonally, and spiritually. Our goal is to help you to recover your true sense of Self, learn to honor and eventually love “The Person You Were Meant To Be”.
We feel honored to be allowed as guides on our clients’ journey to full recovery. We have a passion to help our clients reach their goals and will stick with them even through the roughest patches.
We are here to assist you to make the first steps in your recovery. You are not alone any longer!
Break out of the isolation and despair and gain hope that full recovery is possible for you!
Amy Grabowski, MA, LCPC
