On Dec 15, Backcountry Wellness held an open house in their new location on Lincoln Avenue in central Greenwich, following an August move from 37 North Porchuck Road in back country Greenwich.
The business offers customized recovery treatment of eating disorders.
Back in July, an application for a final site plan and special permit from Back Country Wellness owned by Dr. Joanna Bronfman, was rejected by the Planning & Zoning Commission. The business, which operated in a residential neighborhood in a single family house, had been cited for zoning regulation violations for the better part of a year.
At Thursday’s open house on Lincoln Ave, between Mason Street and Milbank Ave, Dr. Bronfman welcomed a stream of guests.
“We have day and evening programming for girls and women struggling with eating disorders and we now are seeing men for outpatient nutritional counseling, psychotherapy and groups,” Bronfman said.
“The location is ideal. The practice is doing beautifully,” she continued. “The practice offers nutritional counseling and groups. We’re doing a lot of outpatient individual sessions.”
