The Renfrew Center to Open Facility in Center City, Philadelphia

This location is Renfrew’s 4th in Pennsylvania and 19th nationwide.

The Renfrew Center, the nation’s first residential eating disorder facility dedicated exclusively to the treatment of adolescent girls and women, announced today it is opening its 19th location nationally in Center City, Philadelphia, PA. The site, scheduled to begin accepting patients in spring 2019, will be Renfrew’s 4th facility in Pennsylvania.

Like all of our centers, The Renfrew Center of Philadelphia — Center City will treat adolescent girls and women struggling with anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and related mental illnesses. Programming will consist of a comprehensive range of services, including day treatment, intensive outpatient and group therapy.

The feedback we received from consumers and professionals led us to recognize an overwhelming demand for services which made opening a site in Center City the obvious next step. This location will allow local patients to easily transition between all levels of care, including residential treatment at our 58-bed facility, just 10 miles from our new Center City location.

Renfrew’s treatment programs are built upon The Renfrew Center Unified Treatment Model for Eating Disorders®, an evidence-based, emotion-focused therapy that addresses eating disorders and their co-morbid symptoms. Within this model, both individual and group therapy are enhanced with a diverse array of services to meet patients’ needs, including nutrition programs, family services and creative arts. Drs. Gayle Brooks and Susan Ice, internationally recognized experts in the eating disorder field, oversee the clinical operations of Renfrew’s 19 locations.

Since 1985, The Renfrew Center, the pioneer in eating disorder treatment and research, has treated more than 75,000 adolescent girls and women with eating disorders and other behavioral health issues and provided training for more than 35,000 professionals.
