Specialization

  • Dual Diagnosis/ Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

    These two terms describe a person who is not only addicted to drugs or alcohol, but also has a mental or emotional illness, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, etc. Facilities that treat patients with dual-diagnosis or co-occurring disorders provide psychiatric treatment in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.
  • Process Abuse Treatment

    Not all addictions involve mood-altering chemicals. The term “process addiction” describes the unhealthy use of behaviors (including eating, gambling, sexual activity, shopping, internet use, etc.) that has spiraled out of control and into the realm of addiction.

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.

    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
