Healthy Lifestyle Program
The Healthy Lifestyle Program is designed for individuals who have difficulty modifying unhealthy lifestyle behaviors after being identified as having a lifestyle-influenced medical condition or risk factors of the Metabolic Syndrome. The Healthy Lifestyle Program is comprised of two distinct phases of treatment. Phase I is an educational component that is designed to rule out knowledge as a limiting factor for behavioral change. Phase I education focuses upon nutrition, physical activity, health maintenance, and behavioral self-control; key lifestyle behaviors that influence the development and exacerbations of many medical disorders. These essential knowledge and skill sets are provided by a team of behavioral psychologists in a two-day series of group lectures and workshops. Phase II of the Healthy Lifestyle Program also provides a regularly-scheduled support group for patients who desire to learn how similar individuals are addressing the challenges associated with implementing and maintaining healthy lifestyle behaviors.
