Intensive Behavioral Therapy for Obesity

Lose the Weight – and Boost Your Well-Being

If excess weight is taking a toll on your health, turn to Kirby Medical Center for help. Our new wellness program, Intensive Behavioral Therapy for Obesity, is specifically designed for individuals with a BMI of 30 or higher – offering ongoing counseling and support to help program participants meet their weight-loss goals.

How Does the Program Work?

Over the course of one year, participants will meet up to 22 times with a registered dietitian (for approximately 15 minutes each session) to briefly review goals, progress, and tips.

Appointments will be offered based on the following schedule:

  • Month 1: Meet once per week.
  • Months 2-6: Meet every two weeks.
  • Remaining Months: Meet monthly (so long as at least 6.6 pounds were lost in the first six months).
  • (Please note: This program is covered by Medicare.)
