The Renfrew Center of Southern New Jersey is located at 15000 Midlantic Drive – Suite 101 in Mount Laurel, New Jersey. The building is approximately 2 miles west of I-295 on Route 38 at the intersection of Route 38 and Midlantic Drive and is accessible from most major highways. Ample parking is available directly in front of the building. The office is situated on the first floor and is handicap accessible. Public transportation is available within walking distance to and from the site.
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.

Virtual Community Event
It's Not You, It's the Diet
At the start of every year, the media sends manipulative messages by promoting new diet trends and excessive exercise behaviors, with the ultimate goal of making us believe we need to change our bodies. These programs are often unsustainable and lead to many women feeling a sense of failure and despair.
Join The Renfrew Center of Southern New Jersey for a FREE virtual community event as we discuss diet trends and myths and why it’s NOT you, it’s the diet! Attendees will share their experiences, receive tools to navigate diet misconceptions and develop a better understanding of their relationship with food and their bodies.
Attendees will need access to wi-fi and a device with a camera, microphone and audio capabilities.
Date: Thursday, February 4, 2021
Time: 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm (EST)
Held Online via Zoom: A link will be emailed out prior to the event

Offering Virtual College Programming During Winter Break
College life often brings with it complex and difficult paths to navigate for students, particularly for those with an eating disorder. Academics, social situations and new levels of independence are exciting and yet, at times, stressful. Winter break can provide students the opportunity to recenter before returning to school, whether virtual or in-person, with renewed strength and confidence.
For college-aged students who choose to participate, The Renfrew Center of Southern New Jersey has integrated specialized programming into both its Virtual Day Treatment and Virtual Intensive Outpatient levels of care to address the many challenges students face while trying to balance recovery with their other ongoing responsibilities.
