The Renfrew Center to Open West Coast Eating Disorder Treatment Facility
The Renfrew Center of Los Angeles set to open fall 2014
PHILADELPHIA, July 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — The Renfrew Center, the nation’s first residential eating disorder treatment facility, established in 1985, and the largest network of eating disorder treatment centers, announced today it is opening a facility in Los Angeles, CA this fall. The west coast location will be Renfrew’s 16th in the U.S.
The new site, like all of Renfrew’s centers, specializes in the treatment of anorexia, bulimia, EDNOS, binge eating disorder, and related mental illnesses in women. Programming at The Renfrew Center of Los Angeles will consist of a comprehensive range of services, including day treatment, intensive outpatient and group therapy.
“We have been a pioneer in the treatment of eating disorders for nearly 30 years and look forward to bringing our expertise to California,” said Samuel E. Menaged, JD, Founder and President of The Renfrew Center. “Many of the women we have treated during this time have come to us from the west coast. For this reason, and because of requests from the professional community, we wanted to provide care ‘closer to home.’ This new site will allow women in the west coast region to receive the highest quality of treatment, for which Renfrew is well known.”
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. Drs. Gayle Brooks and Susan Ice, internationally recognized experts in the eating disorder field, oversee the clinical operations of Renfrew’s 16 locations. The Renfrew Center works directly with most major insurance companies.
The Renfrew Center, a 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 25,000 professionals.
