We Provide Clinical & Medical Expertise
Center for Change has been a specialized eating disorder treatment center since 1994. Our specialty is the treatment of anorexia, bulimia and binge eating, and we have developed and refined a complete program over the years that address every aspect of recovery for an adolescent girl or an adult woman suffering with an eating disorder. Our medical and clinical staff are unparalleled in the depth and breadth of their expertise in treating the physical and emotional complexities of the eating disorder illness.
Loving Care by Dedicated Staff
Center for Change has a long-term commitment to therapeutic integrity. We put the quality of care for every patient ahead of any other consideration. Center for Change employs a large number of highly trained and qualified staff members because we have learned from experience in working with eating disorders that the type of care that is personal, the emotional support that is personal, and the structure and interventions that are personally given from a large group of loving, dedicated, and talented people is what creates the atmosphere and environment for change and recovery. There is no other treatment facility that provides this level of treatment intensity and personal involvement by this many staff members in the care and treatment of adolescent girls and adult women suffering with eating disorders.
Each Client Receives Intensive and Individualized Treatment
Center for Change adheres to the highest standards of treatment provided by experts in the clinical field of eating disorders. We maintain the highest level of quality standards through our accreditation with The Joint Commission (TJC) and have been accredited since 1998. Patients are active and busy in the process of change and recovery every day at the Center while surrounded by kind and loving staff members. All of this individualized treatment and group work is designed to help each patient prepare herself while at Center for Change to successfully resume a normal life and maintain her progress and recovery after she has left the Center.
The Center’s holistic approach to treating the mind, body and spirit includes helping each client use their own spiritual beliefs to aid them in their recovery. While the Center is a rigorous medical and clinical program, we recognize and honor the truth that spirituality is an important part of recovery and, therefore, an important part of treatment. Our approach is designed for women of various religious faiths or spiritual frameworks. It is non-denominational. Our spirituality component provides a safe environment for spiritual self-awareness, spiritual renewal, and spiritual support.
Highly Successful Dietary Approach to Recovery
Center for Change was the first treatment program to fully implement the Intuitive Eating Recovery Model with eating disorder patients. This model teaches and assists each patient, over the course of their treatment, to trust themselves and their bodies with food. Through ongoing challenges, experiences, and education received from their highly trained eating disorder dietitian, the patient learns how to have a normal relationship with food without the fear, obsession, guilt, or anxiety which is associated with an eating disorder. They learn to be accepting and “in touch” with themselves and their bodies so food becomes a normal and positive part of their lives.
Integration of Education and Therapy
Center for Change fully integrates therapeutic and educational programs together so that the high school principal, education director, counselors, and teachers are actively connected and involved with the clinical team and programs. Center for Change has a licensed high school called Cascade Mountain High School that is accredited by the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC). We provide core curriculum classes for adolescent patients from the seventh to twelfth grades, as well as many elective courses which are taught by exceptional and certified teachers.
Commitment to Research, Training, and Publication
Center for Change has been committed from the very beginning to research, professional training, and publication in the specialty area of eating disorders. We have published many articles in professional journals from research conducted at Center for Change, and have published an American Psychological Association best seller, Spiritual Approaches in the Treatment of Women with Eating Disorders. We have provided professional and educational trainings and workshops throughout the United States and Canada to support therapists, physicians, teachers, dietitians, and counselors in the treatment and prevention of eating disorders. Through our research efforts, we are committed to be on the cutting edge of treatment and recovery of women with this serious illness.
Long-term Commitment to Recovery
Center for Change has a very comprehensive and cost-effective treatment program for adolescent girls and adult women suffering with eating disorders. We provide the intensive structure and care that patients need at the beginning of their treatment and we can help and follow them through to the end of their treatment needs. The program can be individualized and adapted to the specific needs of each patient, even while she engages in the overall treatment program. We are committed to aftercare at Center for Change.
