Located on a 12-acre campus nestled in Durham, North Carolina, Structure House’s residential weight loss program is designed to offer individuals an opportunity to receive holistic care as they work towards accomplishing life-changing feats. Offering a unique, yet effective, approach to weight management, Structure House provides treatment that integrates scientifically-supported principles of nutrition, exercise, and psychology that will help participants adopt new behaviors that will contribute to a healthier and more satisfying way of living.
Knowing that each individual who comes to Structure House for care has his or her own specific health and weight loss goals, the residential program is structured so that all participants can receive individualized care that will help them reach those goals during the time they spend in programming. By employing a team of experts in the respected fields of medicine, fitness, nutrition, and clinical psychology, each Structure House participant is afforded his or her own treatment team who will work diligently with him or her to develop a personalized program that is tailored to meet his or her individual needs. Crafted from the most recent research in the science of weight loss and physical and emotional health, these individualized programs will combine nutritional, fitness, medical, and clinical interventions in a holistic Best Practice Model that is proven effective for achieving weight loss.
When taking part in the residential treatment program offered at Structure House, each participant will reside independently in a fully-furnished, private apartment that is designed to offer a sense of comfort and peace; a sense of being home away from home. Knowing that a sense of security and overall wellbeing is necessary in order to foster an environment that is conducive to healing, the staff at Structure House will do everything in our power to ensure that each participant’s stay with us is a safe, comfortable, and productive one.
