Is there any talk of a back on track program geared towards late post ops who are struggling?  I was looking on barix's website and they have a program but it cost 200 bucks.  Just a thought.....

That kind of program would be a good option.  I do not know if Sacred Heart offers that yet or not.  However, I know that St. Luke's has a Back To Basics Program.  It would be beneficial though, I think.  It would help existing patients to maintain their weight losses and keep them motivated.  It would benefit the hospital in regards to offering more programs translating into more healthcare profit.  I think it would be a win-win situation.  Something for the CEO's to ponder.

SHH used to offer a back to basics/back on track program; but when Dr. Holland originally left to go to St. Luke's, I think that's when that kind of program stopped at SHH.  Like Nadia mentioned, St. Luke's does offer a program, but it does cost money (not sure how much) and I don't think it's covered by most insurances.   It would be great if SHH could get this program back into the "lineup" but again; it would probably still cost.

I would be interested in starting another long-term group; but I would want to do it more around where I live (the Palmerton area).  The group we used to have, did well for a few months and then dwindled, so I decided to cancel doing it.
