The Renfrew Center of West Palm Beach Now Scheduling Assessments

This location is Renfrew’s third in Florida and 19th nationwide

The Renfrew Center, the nation’s first residential eating disorder facility dedicated exclusively to the treatment of adolescent girls and women, is now scheduling assessments at its West Palm Beach facility. Set to open this month, April 2018, The Renfrew Center of West Palm Beach is Renfrew’s 19th location nationwide and its third in Florida.

Located at 1515 North Flagler Drive, West Palm Beach, FL 33401; the new site will specialize in the treatment of anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and related mental illnesses. Programming will consist of a comprehensive range of services, including day treatment, intensive outpatient and group therapy.

The Renfrew Center was established in 1985 on a 27-acre estate in Philadelphia, PA. It accommodates 58 residents. In 1990, Renfrew opened a 40-bed, residential program on 10 acres in Coconut Creek, FL, just south of Boca Raton.

“We’re excited to bring our experience to the West Palm Beach area,” said Samuel E. Menaged, JD, Founder and President of The Renfrew Centers. “We received feedback from consumers and professionals and observed an overwhelming demand for services that made opening a site in West Palm Beach the obvious next step. This new location will allow patients to easily transition between all levels of care while staying within the state of Florida and close to home.”

Each treatment level is built upon The Renfrew Center Unified Treatment Model for Eating Disorders®, an evidence-based, emotion-focused therapy that addresses eating disorders and co-morbid symptoms. Within this model, individual and group therapy are enhanced with a diverse array of services to meet patients’ needs, including nutrition programs, family services and creative arts. Drs. Gayle Brooks and Susan Ice, internationally recognized experts in the eating disorder field, oversee the clinical operations of Renfrew’s 19 locations.

Since 1985, The Renfrew Center, the pioneer in eating disorder treatment and research, has treated more than 75,000 adolescent girls and women with eating disorders and other behavioral health issues and trained more than 35,000 professionals. It has facilities throughout the United States in California, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Texas and works directly with most major insurance companies.
