The Renfrew Center of Orlando is Now Open

This location is Renfrew’s second in Florida and 17thnationwide 


The Renfrew Center announced today it opened a treatment facility in Orlando, FL. The Renfrew Center, celebrating its 30th Anniversary is the nation’s first residential eating disorder facility dedicated exclusively to the treatment of adolescent girls and women. The Orlando facility, Renfrew’s 17th location and second in Florida, is located at 3452 Lake Lynda Drive, Suite 120, Orlando, FL 32817.

The Renfrew Center was established in 1985 on a 27-acre estate in Philadelphia, PA. It accommodates 58 residents. In 1990, Renfrew opened a 40-bed, residential program on 10 acres in Coconut Creek, FL, just south of Boca Raton.

The new site, like all of Renfrew’s centers, specializes in the treatment of anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and related mental illnesses. Programming at The Renfrew Center of Orlando will consist of a comprehensive range of services, including day treatment, intensive outpatient and group therapy.

“We’re excited to bring our experience to the Orlando area,” said Samuel E. Menaged, JD, Founder and President of The Renfrew Centers. “We are coming to the area in response to a demand for services. Women, adolescents and families in the Orlando area will now be able to easily transition between all levels of care, while staying within the state and close to home. Renfrew’s diverse programming is tailored for each patient in order to develop a treatment plan and goals based on her unique needs.”

Renfrew’s treatment philosophy emphasizes a respect for the unique psychology of women, the importance of a collaborative therapeutic relationship, and the belief that every woman needs to actively participate in her own recovery. Drs. Gayle Brooks and Susan Ice, internationally recognized experts in the eating disorder field, oversee the clinical operations of Renfrew’s 17 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 trained more than 35,000 professionals. It has facilities throughout the United States in California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Texas and works directly with most major insurance companies.
