The Renfrew Center recognizes that eating disorders know no national or cultural boundaries. Since its founding in 1985, Renfrew has been a healing haven for women from around the world. No matter what nationality, culture or religion, Renfrew’s goal is to help every woman with an eating disorder recognize her symptoms, be provided with a safe place for treatment and return to her community in a healthy condition.
Renfrew seeks to accomplish these goals while understanding the importance of working within a clients’ cultural-religious framework. While the treatment philosophy at The Renfrew Center remains the same for everyone, accommodations are made for cultural, religious and dietary practices.
Additionally, Renfrew understands that traveling a great distance for treatment can feel frightening and the thought of being far away from loved ones even more frightening. To help alleviate some of those fears, Renfrew works with family and significant others every step of the way to facilitate communication with their loved ones. When possible, Renfrew will help find suitable accommodations near our locations so families can more easily participate in the treatment process.
