Great
I was there for two months and never felt religion was ever a issue. I’m not LDS and never felt looked down. The staff is great and really cares about you. The rules are strick, but they are there for a good reason . I was going to die physically or mentally. They saved my life. I made life long friends there. God forbid if I ever get that bad again this is the first place I would go. I have learned so many things while I was there. It is ok to eat food. You don’t always have to go to bed staving just for your mind to tell you that you did a good job. It’s still hard but at least I can eat and not hate myself

Admissions, was not transparent, nor did staff listen to my husband or I during the multiple conversations we had with her leading up to my admit. Lots of repeat information on our part, and I didn’t know I was even going all the way to Orem until 2 days before my admit. Terrible communication. Staff were the saving grace regarding groups. They were impactful and pressingly relatable, so more like that would be helpful. Beyond that, groups were scarce, I feel. There was too much free time, and it felt like we sat for hours on RTC, with minimal to do. Eat and sit basically. You can tell there has been a shift since being bought out by the corporation because it’s run by stringent rules that appear to be for the money and not for comfort of the patients either. The mattresses and pillows are basically what you find in a prison, the care techs rarely knew what was going on during the whole Coronavirus rampage, even though they tried their best, and really did care about our well-being. They would come to work and the patients would update them on changes. There really needed to be more groups driven by us talking directly about our ED struggles, and they may have some learning to do by the Boise location, because they do a wonderful job. I just wouldn’t recommend Orem unless there were some patient-focused changes.

I have a disability. I was told I would get an email with links to submit references after the interviews, then ghosted.

Militant, overbearing and over-religious. Definitely not an easy adjustment for a Jewish lower/middle-class girl from the East coast. My insurance began fighting my stay from day one, something the clinicians openly shared with me, making sure I knew that "today might be your last day." My therapist chastised me for the physical abuse I received from my mom, demanding we participate in family therapy and kicking me out of her office when I would cry. I spent about 45 days at CFC and came home weight-restored but worse than ever, self-harming and relying on drugs. I deeply wish that my family had chosen an alternative treatment location.

I am so grateful for CFC! Changed my life forever in a positive way. I can not imagine where Id be without the experience I had coming here. 10/10 would recommend. Recovery is hard, but its worth it

They do not start you off easy... they throw you directly into treatment full force. That being said, the strictness and organization of the programming helped me through recovery. I no longer fear sugary foods and I am more at peace with my body. While eating disorder thoughts will always find ways into my head, I now have the skills to push them out and deal with my stressors in a healthy way.

CFC is a truly amazing place that saved my life. It is very strict, but the staff was so loving, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Center to anyone that is struggling. If you are ready to recover, this is definitely the program for you!

This is one of the most superficial, unprofessional and negligent facilities I have ever encountered! I hope the experience I had was rare for the sake of others well-being. They care about you while your there but after they treat you as if you are trash in a waste bin. Good luck and make sure you buy trip insurance and have a back up plan if they leave you to the streets.

this is the most unorganized treatment program that I have ever been to. They do not care about you unless you are Mormon.

6 weeks into my wife's stay at the center she was making progress, until she developed breathing issues, and was taken to the SLC VA hospital for treatment while there on her 3rd day of treatment at the VA, she was told she could not return to the center to continue her treatment..........pretty shabby treatment of a female veteran if you ask me......

Plush with a chef on site. Extremely expensive. Just not affordable for needed length of stay. The community the program is located in is vastly Mormon and the presence of this "faith" was felt. This was negative for some clients.

Good staff and overall treatment approach. Does not provide a realistic setting for real world recovery. I have been through several programs and CFC, despite its weaknesses, is the only one that helped.

Family is encouraged and able to participate in patients recovery. Each patient has a personal M.D., Dietician, Therapist, Nurse Practioner, and Care Tech that meet with them individualy on a regular basis. Awesome/caring staff. Great art/music/rec therapy programs. Comfortable Home like facility. Inpatient, Residential Treatment, Day Patient, and out patient treatment all available. Unfortunately, only 2 locations, both located in Utah. Ive seen so many people learn how to cope with PTSD, depression, anxiety and overcome their eating disorders through the Center for Change!
