Welcome to the River Centre Clinic

The River Centre Clinic was founded in 1996 with a mission to provide specialized and cost-effective treatment for individuals suffering from eating disorders. Our innovative approach to treatment is designed to reduce costs without compromising our high quality of care. We follow a well-established therapy model for treating eating disorders that integrates individual, group, and family therapy. The River Centre Clinic is located in a modern, spacious and tranquil setting in Sylvania, Ohio – a historic suburb of Toledo, Ohio. The facility was designed to provide an attractive, and safe alternative to hospital or hospital-based programs.


The River Centre Clinic received a three-year accreditation renewal by CARF in December 2015.  This represents the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded by CARF to an organization. Surveyors said “The staff members are described by patients as caring, responsive caregivers who are nonjudgmental and respectful” … “described by one parent as a beacon of hope in uncharted waters.”  “… an attractive and peaceful environment.”  … “culture of compassion and respect for professional excellence.”  More about our 2015 accreditation

Our Treatment Programs are developed and customized for each patient.

We recognize that each patient’s eating disorder is unique and our development of an individualized treatment plan is tailored to meet your specific needs. The plan is based on your input as well as our ongoing assessment of problems and progress. This plan is developed based on the initial assessment, then applied within the framework of evidence-based treatment principles, and periodically revised as changes occur during treatment.
