Stories of Hope -- Scott from Hickory, NC
Scott U. of Hickory, North Carolina has been battling a food addiction ever since his medical doctor put him on a medication to assist with his abnormal sleep patterns. “One of the side effects is it gave me the munchies,” he said.
Within a year of starting the medicine, Underdown had put on 60 pounds. Unable to lose the weight on his own, he sought out treatment. He learned about the COR Retreat Food Recovery Program while in treatment at a lodge in Colorado and decided to give it a try.
“What is great about COR Retreat is it offers a good introduction to everything. The program made me more aware of what was going on with me, and showed me how to curb my cravings by changing my behavior, For example, I used to binge after taking my medicine because the cravings for my trigger foods was so strong. Now I go to sleep right away after taking my medicine.”
