In response to the COVID-19 crisis, The Renfrew Center of Southern New Jersey has shifted all Day and Intensive Outpatient Programming (IOP) to a virtual platform until further notice. All of our clinical leaders have been trained in using this platform, and therapist guides and patient handbooks have been rolled out. Additionally, to support prospective patients seeking treatment during this time of uncertainty, we are still offering assessments and taking admissions at our Residential level of care in Philadelphia, PA and Coconut Creek, FL.
