Thin: Part 4 of 6
THIN, directed by Lauren Greenfield and distributed by HBO, is an exploration of The Renfrew Center in Coconut Creek, Florida; a 40-bed residential facility for the treatment of women with eating disorders. The film mostly revolves around four women with anorexia nervosa and/or bulimia and their struggles for recovery.
“I was a patient at Renfrew from June-August 2006. I was bulimic, and binged and purdged a lot. Adam, the counselor in the video, was my therapist when I was there. He was so much cooler and a lot more full of personality in person. He was amazing. The staff at Renfrew is great, as well as the girls. We were a family. It was harder to leave than to go in, as hard as that is to believe. That is, if you had a good experience like I did.” (patient to remain unnamed)
