The Craving Change program™ is licensed. This means that each person using the materials must have a license to do so. There are now three licensing options: an individual clinician license, a clinic / organization license and a corporate license.

Since 2008, Craving Change Inc. has had great success across Canada selling individual clinician licenses directly to allied health care professionals. Beginning in 2013, a Clinic / Organization license has been launched in response to frequent requests from managers, program co-ordinators and regional directors for a license that allows for more! More flexibility, control and sustainability. Corporate consultation and licensing is also available for companies. Please contact us to find out what Craving Change Inc. can do to help grow your brand and business.

Choosing the license that is right for you depends on several factors. There are a number of advantages to each option to provide flexible solutions for your setting and needs. The Clinician and Clinic / Organization licenses are sold as key components of complete packages. Links to full descriptions of these packages are provided below.

Help Me Decide

Which license is right for me?

  1. I work at a diabetes clinic and I want to offer Craving Change™ workshops to my clients.
    The Clinician License permits you to use Craving Change™ materials with your patients, in both individual and small group (under 20 clients) settings. Should you leave your job or start doing private practice you are still entitled to use the Craving Change™ materials as this license is an agreement between you and Craving Change Inc.
  2. I want all of my staff to understand the basic concepts in Craving Change™ and be able to describe it to clients. I want about 16 clinicians to get trained and start implementing the program, but then later this year there are about 5 other clinicians that I’m going to want to train. We intend to use your logo on our website – we want to affiliate ourselves with the brand of the #1 cognitive-behavioural program for problematic eating in Canada! How do I deal with staff turnover?
    The Clinic / Organization license was designed with you in mind! Go to the Resource Catalogue for more information.
  3. I have 3 colleagues at my clinic who also want to use Craving Change™ materials with our clients.
    You have a choice – either each of you can purchase a Complete Facilitator Certification Package OR your clinic could purchase a Clinic /Organization License Package. While the Clinic / Organization license involves a higher up-front fee, there are numerous additional benefits for the clinic. If you move on from your job at this clinic you would need to forfeit your materials back to the clinic and purchase your own individual license to use in your new setting.
  4. I work at a private weight management clinic (or pharmacy chain, surgical clinic, wellness clinic, physiotherapy clinic, insurance provider, etc). The clinic is a “for-profit” business and aligning with Craving Change Inc. could really increase our sales and attract more customers. We have ads in the paper and on the web or TV.
    A Corporate License is required – and we’d love to work with you! Aligning your company with the Craving Change™ brand and logo could give you that competitive edge you’re looking for. The cost for this relationship depends on many factors, including the size and “reach” of your company and the extent of consultation services you’d like from us. Please contact Craving Change Inc. for more information.
