Doctors at Cirque Lodge don’t want patients to fixate on their weight. The counselors are working on giving Demi a safe and controlled environment, she is getting the best care possible. She is not being forced fed for not wanting to eat.
‘She is also dealing with an addiction to prescription medication, and she has a comprehensive team taking care of her.’
