Why Structure House?

At Structure House, we pride ourselves on being anything but a “fat camp”.

We understand that there are many rapid weight loss options ranging from surgery and medication to what you see on shows like The Biggest Loser. Unfortunately, for the large majority of people, those methods have proven not to lead to long-term sustainable weight loss. In fact, only 1 out of 20 people who diet do not maintain their weight loss. The distinguishing factor at Structure House is the address of the underlying emotional and behavioral drivers of weight loss. A full 3 out of 4 people who participate in our program maintain the weight lost during treatment and over 20% of our participants use the tools learned to lose over 20% of their start total body weight in the two years following treatment. Our comprehensive weight loss program provides the skills, information and motivation necessary to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle promoting long-term health and happiness.

We understand that struggling with weight can be incredibly challenging. Most of our clients struggle with the many consequences related to their weight, while others work vigorously to keep their health in check. Being overweight can cause issues such as:

 

• Increased risk of cancer
• Diabetes
• Sleep Apnea
• Arthritis
• Asthma
• Stroke
• Heart Disease
• Fatty Liver Disease
• Chronic Pain

In addition, weight issues can also cause serious emotional issues that can include anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and more. As a matter of fact, a recent study conducted through Yale University showed that people with obesity rated their quality of life as low as that of cancer patients. We understand this, and have developed a program that addresses each one of these issues. We do not focus on the race to lose weight, and we do not send you on your way once you have achieved your goals. Instead, we help you lose weight in a healthy manner all while supporting you. In addition, we will continue to offer our

services even after your stay has been completed.
