Center for Change Boise Idaho facility house outside

Located in a beautifully restored home in the historic Hyde Park District of Boise’s North End neighborhood, Center for Change offers a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).

Our Boise campus meets the needs of both adolescents and adults of all genders dealing with eating disorders, who don’t require an inpatient setting but need more support and structure beyond traditional outpatient care.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

Offered five days a week, PHP focuses on actively treating the eating disorder illness, preventing relapse, improving body image, setting goals, facing fears and accomplishing specific social, vocational and educational tasks.

Here, patients have the opportunity to practice the application of the skills they learn in a safe environment as they participate in individual psychotherapy, family sessions, dietary counseling, experiential groups, psychoeducational groups and therapeutic meals and snacks.

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

This program allows our patients to receive accelerated treatment for eating disorders, while still participating in their daily responsibilities such as work or school. Our program is typically held each Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, though scheduling is flexible and individual needs can often be accommodated.

Program activities include individual therapy, dietary counseling, family involvement, daily group therapy and goal planning.

Outpatient Groups

Eating Disorder Hope & Healing 12-Step Community Support Group

Please join us every Wednesday from 12-1pm for a free community support meeting addressing the needs of people suffering with or in recovery from an eating disorder. This meeting provides education about eating disorders and offers 12-Step support.

Program Features

Fully supported by our team of licensed therapists, registered dietitians and registered nurses, we help our patients build confidence in themselves so they can heal.

Who We Are

Center for Change was established in 1994, though most of the founders have been working together and treating eating disorders and concurrent illnesses since 1988. We offer the most comprehensive therapy and treatment programs available, with a full continuum of care – from inpatient and residential treatment at the Orem, Utah location to day and evening programs and outpatient services. Our focus is on healing the whole person – mind, body, spirit and relationships – freeing those struggling with the pain and loneliness of illness to find a peaceful and fulfilling life.
