Residential Treatment for Patients Nationwide
The Renfrew Center of Coconut Creek, Florida is a Residential facility specializing in the treatment of anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating as well as the full range of eating disorders.
Renfrew’s safe, friendly and homelike atmosphere promotes interpersonal connection. We reinforce a sense of community by helping patients recognize shared themes and struggles. The power of nature and open spaces was valued in the development of The Renfrew Center of Florida, and it is located on a lush, tropical 10-acre former horse farm near Boca Raton.
Programming at the Coconut Creek location consists of Residential and specialized treatment programming, including the care of those who are medically compromised, have experienced trauma or who are struggling with substance use. For other Florida-based outpatient services, visit our Orlando or West Palm Beach locations.
7700 Renfrew Lane
Coconut Creek, FL 33073
The Coconut Creek location is one of two Residential treatment centers offering 24-hour medical care and comprehensive, therapeutic treatment in a beautiful, nurturing environment. A wide range of programming is available for individuals and families.
During my residential stay at The Renfrew Center of Florida, the love from my friends and family back home combined with the kindness from individuals at the center surrounded me and strengthened me. For the first time ever, I was able to let my guard down. I learned to embrace the present moment, letting my past fade and discovering how I wanted to build my future. My eating disorder is a fading memory, like a bad relationship. The pieces of my life and myself are coming together.
Renfrew saved my life. I cannot put it any more plainly than that. Not everyone is ready for treatment, and it is not easy. It has been just over a year since I discharged and I am proud to say I have maintained but know I still have healing ahead of me. That’s okay. I am alive. I am healthy. If you are ready to choose LIFE – YOUR LIFE – I cannot recommend The Renfrew Center of Florida enough.
Parent of a Renfrew Alumna
The staff at The Renfrew Center of Florida were amazingly supportive, professional, and committed to our daughter, and the other providers from psychiatrists to reception were kind, professional, transparent, and willing to work with us as parents. I would highly recommend this facility.
