The Renfrew Center of New York offers an Aftercare Group.
The Aftercare Group is for alumni of Renfrew’s higher levels of care and who are working toward recovery from anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder or disordered eating patterns involving binge eating or restricting. Led by a licensed clinician, the group provides a safe atmosphere where group members will explore eating disorder triggers as well as issues concerning body image, relationships, work, and school. Members of the group are required to be followed by an outpatient therapist in order to participate.
This group is for patients who do not require a higher level of care such as Day Treatment or IOP.
