We are excited to announce the New Direction System, a medically supervised comprehensive weight management program. Although new to our community, New Direction is an established program that has assisted patients in accomplishing their weight loss goals for over 20 years.
The New Direction System is a medically supervised, multidisciplinary team effort that helps obese people make these changes. The team includes a System Manager, a Physician, a Registered Dietitian, a Behavioral Counselor, a Nurse and Office Manager, an Exercise Specialist, and other consultants and clerical staff, as needed.
New Direction is appropriate for female participants who are 40 or more pounds overweight and male participants who are 50 pounds overweight. The program is particularly well suited to participants who have developed secondary medical problems related to obesity. However, treatment in the program is limited to that of obesity itself.
The New Direction System provides the treatment needed to achieve long-term success. The goal is to help participants achieve permanent weight loss through lifelong changes in dietary, behavioral, and activity patterns.
