The Renfrew Center of Chicago Now Open

The Renfrew Center announced today it opened a treatment facility in Chicago, Illinois. The Renfrew Center, established in 1985, is the nation’s first residential eating disorder treatment facility and largest network of eating disorder treatment centers. The Chicago facility, Renfrew's 15th location, is located at 5 Revere Drive, Northbrook, IL 60062.

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

“We’re excited to bring our experience to Illinois,” said Samuel E. Menaged, JD, Founder and President of The Renfrew Centers. “We received feedback from professionals and community members and observed an overwhelming demand for services that made opening a site in Chicago the obvious next step in empowering women to change their lives and ultimately recover from their eating disorders.”

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. The Renfrew Center works directly with most major insurance companies.

The Renfrew Center, the pioneer in eating disorder treatment and research, has treated more than 65,000 women with eating disorders and other behavioral health issues and trained more than 30,000 professionals. It has facilities in Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Texas.

The new facility will be located in the Chicago suburb of Northbrook. For additional information about The Renfrew Center of Chicago or any of its programs and services, please call 1-800-RENFREW.
