Open to alumni of The Renfrew Centers of Philadelphia - Spring Lane, PA and Coconut Creek, FL only.

Held Online via Zoom

The Renfrew Center is offering a virtual support group for alumni of our Residential program as they move forward in their recovery.

Participants in this online group will:

  • Discuss the unique challenges faced by those in eating disorder recovery after leaving residential treatment.
  • Receive take-away tips to navigate relationships and prioritize self-care in the home environment.
  • Review and practice the skills needed to cope with emotions in adaptive ways.

This support group aligns with Renfrew’s approach to treatment and recovery, including the beliefs that “all foods fit” and “all bodies are good bodies”. Please do not attend this support group to discuss or seek support for the intentional pursuit of weight loss, dieting, or any other strategy intended to manipulate the shape or size or size of the body. 

Held online via Zoom. Attendees will need access to wi-fi, and a device with a camera, microphone and audio capabilities
