Welcome to the River Centre Clinic

The River Centre Clinic (RCC) has almost two decades of experience providing innovative treatment to adults and adolescents suffering from eating disorders. Our ground-breaking approach to treatment, based on extensive experience and research, is designed to reduce costs without compromising our high quality of care. We pride ourselves in being just the right size – not too large so that patients risk becoming lost in the mix or too small where the critical mass of staff expertise can be lacking.

We have been pioneers in developing a now well-established therapy model that integrates individual, group, and family therapy. This model is linked to evidence-based treatment principles and has proven effective in helping program participants achieve symptom control and resolve the range of psychological concerns linked to the development and maintenance of eating disorders.

The RCC multidisciplinary staff is committed to providing specialized psychological and educational treatments in a safe and respectful setting. Our treatment representing medicine, nursing, psychology, social work, dietetics and other specialties is dedicated to helping women and men who suffer from eating disorders reclaim their lives and begin the journey toward lifelong health.

The RCC is located in a modern, spacious and tranquil setting in Sylvania Ohio, an historic suburb of Toledo, Ohio, and is designed to provide an attractive and safe alternative to hospital or hospital-based programs. The facility provides a unique therapeutic environment that is conducive to recovery.

Partial Hospitalization Program

The River Centre Clinic’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for adults combines 35 hours per week (5 days a week, 7 hours a day) of partial hospitalization treatment with the option of independent living arrangements in dormitory-style rooms in or near the main facility. The PHP is the most appropriate level of care for the vast majority of women and men who suffer from serious eating disorders. It provides a higher level of structure and support than is possible during outpatient treatment, but is also an effective, safe, and economical alternative to inpatient treatment.  Learn More  

Adolescent Residential Program

River Centre Clinic’s Adolescent Residential Program (ARP) is available for individuals between 12 and 17 years old and offers 24-hour care, 7 days a week. The Adolescent Residential Treatment Program offers a high level of intensity, structure, safety, and monitoring that is necessary for many adolescents with eating disorders. Program participants live in colorful, well-appointed rooms with one, two, or three other roommates and are monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Learn more

Outpatient Treatment

The River Centre Clinic offers outpatient individual and family therapy for individuals suffering from eating disorders. We also have highly skilled therapists who provide outpatient services for individuals who do not have eating disorders.

Living Arrangements for Adults at no Cost

The River Centre Clinic offers an innovative independent living option for adult participants in the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) at no extra charge. Adults share nicely furnished college dormitory style rooms with one or two other adult roommates in the main treatment facility. This living arrangement provides structure, support and safety without the disadvantages of a restrictive hospital environment. It also allows participants to practice real-world activities such as shopping, meal planning, eating on weekends, and socializing with others. The independent living environment allows program participants to:

  • Practice learned behaviors outside of the treatment setting.
  • Practice Self-responsibility.
  • Test internalization of treatment principles.
  • Practice new communication patterns with family and friends.

Exceptional Staff

Each patient is treated with expertise and compassion by a professional team comprised of a primary therapist trained at the master’s or doctoral level, a psychiatrist or primary care provider, a social worker, a registered nurse, and nutrition staff. An educational coordinator is on sight to ensure that adolescent patients continue their academic progress. Medical and clinical staff members are available after regular program hours to meet any needs. Learn More

Individually Tailored Approach

Our innovative treatment programs for adults and adolescents are individually tailored to meet the complex and very specific needs of those with eating disorders.  Each program participant receives support and individual attention needed to make the life changes required to be free of eating disorder symptoms.  Separate programs are offered for adolescents and adults so that you know that you will be in treatment with others who are facing similar challenges.  We pride ourselves in being just the right size – not too large so that patients risk becoming lost in the mix or too small where the critical mass of staff expertise can be lacking. Each patient receives an individualized treatment plan that is developed and implemented by an interdisciplinary team of highly trained professional staff members.

We take pride in working with persons with language, hearing, vision, and other special needs by involving other agencies and professionals to supplement and individualize the care that we provide at the River Centre Clinic.
