WHAT WAS YOUR OVERALL EXPERIENCE AT CENTER FOR CHANGE?
I really liked the therapeutic approach and I also liked the experiential approach as well. The food philosophy was also very helpful.
I liked having a schedule. I enjoyed going to classes that helped me in my recovery. Doing some of the phase assignments really taught me a lot about myself and the eating disorder. They make me change for the better.
Best treatment facility I’ve ever been to. It was the perfect fit for me. I needed the structure to stop behaviors and I like the food and eating philosophy. The individual and group therapy have been so helpful
My experience here at CFC has literally changed my life. It’s given me hope for my future and confidence in my ability to recover. At times I wanted to quit, but with such an amazing staff on hand 24/7, I was able to push through. During my stay here, I have grown more than I ever thought possible. I’m starting to love who I am and what my body can do for me. I never thought I would or could be this person. Thank you CFC!
Overall I was so impressed with the staff and the program itself. I believe they have the best tools in place to help people. I was and am so grateful for this experience.
Overall an amazing program. Thank-you CFC. You changed my life you saved me.
I came to the center with no hope for recovery. I didn’t think that anyone could help me change my ED mindset, but I was wrong. I now have more hope and confidence than I ever have had. My team and the staff have helped me realize that I don’t need my eating disorder to have a successful and bright future.
I think the groups here are so influential and have helped me a lot. I can tell that the staff here truly care about the patients and are so nice. My experience has been life changing and I am glad I chose CFC.
CFC is amazing and is the most helpful treatment out there; I think the staff is so caring and kind. I think when someone is ready to recover; this is the place to get started
The Center for Change has truly helped me in so many ways. I have become more self confident and hold a much higher respect for my body. Being at the Center has changed my life and kept me alive. I now know how to stand up for myself and be assertive in times of need. I am determined to become an Intuitive eater and live a long, happy, healthy life. The eating disorder is no longer going to control my life.
My time here at CFC has been a life changing experience! I’m finally learning who I am without ED and it’s an amazing feeling. I’m finally getting my life back and I couldn’t have done it without the support from CFC.
I have had a great experience I cannot thank you guys enough for all you have done. You have made me feel safe, comfortable and cared for. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
This has been a life changing experience. When I first came here, I was in complete denial about my eating disorder and my need for this program. As I look back I really have nothing but praise for the Center for Change. They have given me tools for my road to recovery and coping skills and strategies that will not only help me battle my eating disorder, but also battle all my challenges in life.
This Center has changed my life; has saved my life. I think the myriad of dynamics is exceptional. I am forever grateful to the Center and all of the staff that had a hand in helping me save my life and have a future. I cannot thank you enough.
Seriously, this place was an answer to a lot of years of prayer. It has taught me to take my life back into my own hands.
I feel like the center has been extremely helpful and I felt comfortable with all the staff, that was important to me because I struggle with opening up to people and trusting but here I felt like I could be honest and open. I feel safe here. I also feel like I improved a lot and have found lots of support here.
I was very impressed with the faculty and staff. I was surprised and very happy with how much they cared and tried to support and encourage and help us.
I love CFC. It helped me see that life can be fun, exciting, and satisfying and that I can be happy and proud of who I am. I’ve made great friendships here. I consider my stay here the best part of my life so far…. CFC has saved my life.
I’m really going to miss CFC and the staff who work here.

CFC exceeded my expectation. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
With knowledge that I’ve gained and through work with my therapist, I’ll take away what I came for. I’m glad that I am strong enough in my beliefs to leave behind the rest.
The Center saved my life and my treatment team never gave up on me or treated me poorly. Therapy was extremely helpful. I’m so grateful for The Center for Change.
Amazing life changing experience. I have learned and grown so much.
I got a lot out of individual therapy, art therapy, and group. My expectations have been met.
I am so thankful that I’ve had the opportunity to come to CFC. The best part is the people- as much as I whine and get stuck in my obsessive thoughts- I’ve truly felt that everyone cares.
The most amazing and caring staff, people in general. The environment is very warm and inviting and really feels comfortable.

I felt that I learned a lot here and was fortunate to have the experience to get help here.
The Center for Change helped me so much on not just recovering from my ED, but on changing my life. I definitely found a balance in my life, and realized that I could deal with my feelings and with situations.
I would recommend the Center for Change program to anybody who was suffering from an eating disorder. I feel so much better after coming to the program. The therapists are the best anywhere. The staff really cares about each woman. I have made many lifetime friends at the Center. I can’t say enough good things about my therapist.
I have learned more here than I could have imagined. I am more than grateful that I had the opportunity to admit myself to the Center despite how difficult it was.
CFC has saved my life. I am grateful to everyone here for helping me through my time here. I now know for a fact that I am going to recover.
I owe a lot to CFC. I am now equipped to live a long, healthy, happy life and I love myself and am ready to accomplish all my dreams.
I didn’t think it was possible. This second chance has been an absolute miracle. Thank you for not giving up on me, for believing in me when I could not believe in myself.
Thanks for helping me get my life back. I cannot put a price on what you’ve given me.
I think the majority of the staff is really great and helpful. I am so glad I was able to participate and work through the program because the changes I have been able to make wouldn’t have happened without the support of the staff and the program. Thank you!!
It was challenging, helpful and now I feel hopeful for my future. I’m finally excited to live my life and go for things that at first I never thought would be possible. I’m so much happier.
The program is amazing. The phase system and assignments gave me specific powerful steps towards awareness, acceptance and recovery. I am truly grateful for the experience. Although it was more difficult than I imagined, it was also more beneficial.
I have been changed for life. I will never forget the staff or what I have learned. I have very mixed feelings about leaving. It is so incredibly hard to leave, but I have been prepared well. I love all of you so much. Thank you for taking such loving care of me. I will never, ever forget you or my experience at CFC.
I feel so lucky and am grateful for the opportunity I had to come to CFC and gain the tools and knowledge that will help me to have the life and hope I never thought I could have. I am going to miss the girls here so much and for their strength, support and example that I couldn’t have done without. I am also very grateful for the spirituality base of this program.
My life had changed because of what the Center did for me. My eyes have been opened to life outside the ED and I am starting to love myself again.
I loved the care of the nurses and techs. It was very helpful to know some of the staff had also suffered an eating disorder. The food was good and the assignments for each phase were vital to truly understand myself.
You have a wonderful program. All of the therapy and love we develop between the staff and other patients has been very helpful to me. I wasn’t allowed to isolate which sucked at the time, but now I’m so glad.
I appreciate all the hard work the staff puts into this whole program. I see that they all want the best for all the patients’ future- sincere, caring and validating.
I felt it offered a wonderful variety of ways to tap into the underlying problems of my eating disorder. I felt all staff to be loving and supportive. I highly respect and admire the communication that happens between staff. Everyone is on the same page. It felt very safe and found it very good to have everyone know your status so they can help in their own way.
I think this is a wonderful and complex program for a complex disorder. I love how individual therapy is given and I can work on what works best for me. I have seen light years of difference since the day I got here. Thank you!
I feel like a completely different person since I’ve came here. I don’t think there is a better facility and program out there. Thank you all so much for the support and care!
Thank you! I didn’t think that after having my ED for more than 17 years I could recover. I now have hope for a brighter and truly happy future.
I’ve been very impressed with the therapists here. I feel the people here at CFC have been genuinely concerned for the welfare of the patients. That is a comfort I’ve really appreciated.

The center really has changed my life. It has taught me that there are other options and that there are better ways to handle anxiety/stress. I liked how it worked with all aspects of what I needed; mind, body, and spirituality. I believe it was the only way I feel I would be able to recover.
