The Renfrew Center to Open Facility in Pittsburgh, PA

This location is Renfrew's third in Pennsylvania and 18th nationwide

December 08, 2016

The Renfrew Center, celebrating its 30th Anniversary as the nation's first residential eating disorder facility dedicated exclusively to the treatment of adolescent girls and women, announced today it is opening its 18th location nationally in Pittsburgh, PA. The site, scheduled to begin accepting patients in the spring of 2017, will be Renfrew's third facility in Pennsylvania.

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 Pittsburgh will consist of a comprehensive range of services, including day treatment, intensive outpatient and group therapy.

"We're excited to bring our experience to the Pittsburgh area," said Samuel E. Menaged, JD, Founder and President of The Renfrew Centers. "Renfrew was first established in Pennsylvania in 1985 and since then there has been a significant demand for services from this area. 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 Pittsburgh to receive the highest quality of treatment, for which Renfrew is well known."

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 18 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.
