RCBM offers a comprehensive approach to weight management, offering medical and behavioral strategies to address weight concerns. Each patient has a treatment plan tailored to his needs and preferences.

-Your therapist will work with you to:
-Identify triggers to unhealthy eating (wrong food choices or over-eating)
-Assess underlying mental health issues contributing to weight issues
-Explore maladaptive habits and replace them with healthy ones
-Involve family members (when appropriate) who can help support you as you work toward your goals
-Help to pave the way for sustained lifestyle changes.
-Bariatric surgery evaluations: Most doctors who perform bariatric surgery require a psychiatric evaluation to ensure that the patient is ready to make and sustain the lifestyle changes to support a bariatric surgery. RCBM clinicians can conduct these evaluations and provide a report to the referring physician.
