The Renfrew Center Eating Disorder Treatment Facility


First in Eating Disorders

Since 1985, The Renfrew Centers have been providing clinical excellence within a nurturing environment  empowering adolescent girls and women to change their lives.

Intensive Outpatient (IOP)

The Renfrew Center's Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is an innovative and dynamic treatment option developed particularly for women who need a strong adjunct to outpatient therapy to support their recovery. 

The Renfrew Center’s Intensive Outpatient Program:

  • Serves as an excellent "step-down" for adolescents and women transitioning from Residential or Day Treatment programs or as a "step-up" from individual or group therapy
  • Meets three evenings per week so that participants can pursue their regular daytime activities
  • Is group-based and includes coping skills development, interpersonal process, psychoeducational and expressive psychotherapy components
  • Includes one meal a day that is led by a therapist or nutritionist and is designed to address eating and socialization issues
  • Encourages participants to use the support of the therapeutic community to develop and practice new coping skills
