Testimonials and Endorsements

“In my 30 years of ministry I have never seen a more thorough treatment process than the one developed at The Center. Dr. Jantz and his team have produced the ultimate out-patient model in caring for people.” – Ron Pinkston, Supervisor, San Francisco Bay Area District of Foursquare Churches; Senior Pastor, East Bay Fellowship, Danville, CA

I wanted to understand the reasons I kept hanging on to my eating disorder when it caused so much destruction in my life. Also, to dig deep to find the core reason that I had such self-harming behaviors. My treatment team was absolutely amazing. It definitely was not easy getting through these things, but with their knowledge, wisdom, care and support I was able to overcome obstacles that I never really thought I would be able to.

I just want to say that The Center has changed my life in more ways than one. Thank you for putting so much love and inspiration into this Place of Hope. I am grateful beyond words, and there will always be a special place in my heart for all of you. – Pam, 42

My primary goals in coming here were to break my eating disorder habits and learn healthier ways to cope with stress. My treatment team was wonderful! I learned something from every one of them; they showed true compassion and care. And my medical team was fantastic! They encouraged me and cared about the whole me, and not just the medical side.

Thank you so much! All of the staff here are wonderful! It was nice to see the unity in the team, to see everyone working together. Thank you for caring about me and going beyond what was expected to help me. I have been truly blessed by everyone here at The Center. God bless you all as well! – Juhye, 21
