Structure House Philosophy

Look forward to a healthier lifestyle and a promising future with help from Structure House. Our customized weight management services help our guests embrace their strengths, heal their bodies, and create lasting, positive change.

Our Philosophy

Structure House is a healthy weight loss and wellness program for adult men and women. We utilize a holistic approach that integrates behavioral skills training, nutritional expertise, and fitness conditioning in a healing and supportive environment to achieve lasting results. For 40 years, Structure House has built the foundation for healthy living, sustainable weight management, and recovery from emotional overeating for thousands of individuals.

Recognizing that many individuals may need weight loss to improve their health and physical functioning, we provide evidence-based, healthy behavioral weight management. We follow science-based principles and consider individual needs to ensure that weight loss is achieved without sacrificing physical or psychological health.

Much more than a diet program, we help you develop the behaviors, attitudes, and lifestyle that will instill a lifelong (versus ‘quick-fix’) approach to healthy habits. We create long-term effectiveness by going beyond basic diet and exercise advice, letting go of ‘weight loss at all cost’ strategies, and finding a healthy balance with eating, physical activity, and self-care.

Ultimately, the goal of our program is to help you live the life you most want to live. Whatever that means for you, we believe that healthy living is a powerful foundation.

Our Personalized Approach

At Structure House, we are not a one-size-fits all program and recognize that no two people are alike. Each person’s journey toward achieving better health is going to be a completely different experience based on a person’s unique needs. Therefore, we focus on providing comprehensive, individualized care with a therapeutic focus, which will allow us to address individual differences and issues that our participants may be facing. As a result, our customized programs are based on each participant’s health-related goals, medical conditions, fitness level, and psychological needs.

In addition to our 4-week core program curriculum, we offer initial individual sessions with a registered dietitian, behavior specialist, medical nurse, and fitness specialist within the first week of arrival for New Participants and Alumni in order to ensure a customized and safe experience while at Structure House. We offer supplemental modules and individual services that complement the core program based on a participant’s preferred area of focus, which include:

  • Career counseling
  • Life goals therapy
  • Smoking Cessation
  • Psychiatric consultation
  • Bridge Module for overcoming emotional/binge eating
  • Diabetes Module with support from an endocrinologist and certified diabetes educator team
  • Pre- and Post-Bariatric support care
  • One-on-one support from our nutrition, fitness, massage, and medical team

Therapists with expertise in these areas can give you individualized, specific attention while you continue to work on making healthy lifestyle changes. Depending on the topic, therapy session packages are available to help you make progress in your area of choice.

At Structure House we tailor our program to the individual, so no matter how large or small your weight loss goal may be, we can help you live your best life.

There’s support 24/7 while you’re here. When I started to feel myself slip, I came back, and it really helped. I feel invigorated and re-energized.
