EXCLUSIVE: Demi Lovato Being Treated at Timberline Knolls

Posted Tuesday November 9, 2010 4:00 PM GMT

She’s been staying under the radar ever since dropping off the Jonas Brothers European Tour, and now GossipCenter has exclusively learned that Demi Lovato is getting help at the Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center.

According to our exclusive source, the Lovato family spent the weekend with Demi, staying at a local hotel to be close to the ailing Disney darling during her time of need.

The Lovatos were spotted on Sunday (November 7) leaving their hotel and driving to the treatment center before heading off to the airport to fly back to Los Angeles.

Demi checked into Timberline Knolls, located just outside Chicago in Lemont, Illinois, directly after deciding she needed help for emotional and physical issues.

The center’s website boasts, “Nestled on 43 wooded acres, the Timberline Knolls campus has received recognition for its beauty from the American Institute of Landscape Architects. The tranquil grounds contain a lake and reflecting ponds, an historic art studio, comfortable contemporary residential facilities, and outdoor activity fields.”

And Melissa Rocchi, the Program Development Coordinator and Manager of Expressive Therapies, shared that many of the residents of Timberline Knolls are involved in a volunteer program to help them through their own struggles.

"Timberline Knolls residents really look forward to their time volunteering at the Franciscan Village, as well as the other places where we get involved, including the local animal shelter, nursing homes, children's hospitals and veteran's organizations. Residents from the Chicago area have even brought additional charitable organizations and causes to the attention of Timberline Knolls staff. Volunteer work is an important part of residential treatment because it reinforces the ability to connect with others. It also helps them realize that they are not the only ones who face lifelong challenges and need the assistance of others in this world to live a healthy and fulfilling life."

As for Demi’s living conditions, former residents have reported that Timberline Knolls has a decent selection of food and activities available, and the center comes highly recommended and well-rated by clients and industry sources alike.

There’s still no word on how long Miss Lovato will be receiving care at Timberline Knolls, but stay linked to GossipCenter for all the latest details.
