Renfrew Offers Virtual Programming for College Students


As the semester winds down and changes in daily routines approach, we are here to help college students who have been struggling with disordered eating, food restriction, bingeing, or purging behaviors to get back on track (health wise) this summer season.

We understand college life often brings with it complex and difficult paths to navigate for students, particularly for those struggling with disordered eating. Academics, social situations and new levels of independence are exciting and yet, at times, stressful. For many students, these challenges and mental health concerns have been exacerbated as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

For college-aged students who choose to participate, The Renfrew Center has integrated specialized programming into its Residential, 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. Group members have opportunities to identify, share and affirm connections to themselves and others, building authentic and sustainable relationships.

Discussion covers the following topics:

• Balancing hybrid learning
• Social isolation
• Screen time fatigue
• Utilizing supports
• Self-care practices
• Navigating family dynamics
• Meal planning and nutrition
• Exercise culture
• Returning to “normal” college life
