The Renfrew Center of West Palm Beach Now Open

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

April 30, 2018

The Renfrew Center, the nation's first residential eating disorder facility dedicated exclusively to the treatment of adolescent girls and women, announced today the opening of its West Palm Beach, FL site. Located at 1515 North Flagler Drive, West Palm Beach, FL 33401, this facility is Renfrew's 19th location nationwide and third in Florida, the others being a 40-bed residential facility in Coconut Creek and an outpatient site in Orlando.

The new site, like all of Renfrew's centers, specializes in the treatment of anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, and related mental illnesses. Programming at The Renfrew Center of West Palm Beach consists of a comprehensive range of services, including day treatment, intensive outpatient and group therapy. The site is under the leadership of Regional Assistant Vice President, Paula Edwards Gayfield, LPCS, CEDS, and Site Director, Lewis Jones, PsyD.

"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. "Renfrew was first established in 1985, and since that time the demand for services has increased greatly. Because of that reason and requests from the professional community in West Palm Beach, we wanted to provide care 'closer to home.' The new site will allow adolescent girls and women to receive the highest quality of care and consistent treatment at all of our sites within the state."

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.

Accepting more than 430 insurance plans across the country, The Renfrew Center has contracts with almost every managed care company for all levels of treatment and is a preferred provider for many insurance companies. The site is in-network with Aetna, Cigna, Humana, and United Behavioral Health.

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.
