PEOPLE is reporting that Selena Gomez recently completed a two-week program to treat anxiety and depression in New York City. One source tells PEOPLE that the singer and actress wanted to "get away and focus on herself with no distractions," adding that Selena "came back feeling very empowered" following the treatment.

The same source adds that Selena "wanted to clear her mind" following everything that happened in recent months.

Six months later, Selena revealed that thanks to her friend and actress Francia Raisa, she received a kidney transplant after suffering from arthritis and kidney failure related to her Lupus. She later said on The Today Show, "I don't think what we went through was easy. I don't think it was fun. I hope this inspires people to feel good, to know there
