Healthy Weight Specialty Service
This service is for children, adolescents, adults or families struggling with weight management and interested in engaging in a lifestyle change, not diet, program.

This program is approved for NCFlex reimbursement.

In the program, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is offered in conjunction with nicotine replacement therapy, which research has shown to be the most effective combination. A weight gain prevention component is also incorporated. This program is approved for NCFlex reimbursement.
This program is also offered in groups or on an individual basis, depending on therapist availability.
