Psychological Programs that Support Sustainable Mental, Behavioral, and Metabolic Health Recovery
Address the Underlying Mental Health Issues that Contribute to Metabolic and Lifestyle Disorders
80% of "behavioral" weight loss interventions fail to achieve long-term results because they do not address recovery from underlying mental health challenges.
BreakThrough! is your comprehensive resource you can use to leverage sustainable change for your patients. We provide on-site and virtual tools that support the doctor-patient relationship through recovery from the emotional and mental health conditions that contribute to the development of metabolic lifestyle disorders.
Endorsed by the American Counseling Association, NAADAC, and National Board for Certified Counselors, BreakThrough! is specifically designed to seamlessly integrate with healthcare providers, weight loss clinics, treatment programs, trained coaches, and community support groups. To date, BreakThough! has successfully helped over 2,800 participants transform into better health with an average of 22 pounds lost over a 12-week period.
Your Integrated Healthcare Resource
Our BreakThough! curriculum centers on evidenced-based psychological practices that focus on the mood states, environments, and behaviors that lead to emotional eating and weight gain. Topics include depression, anxiety, trauma, family dynamics, addiction, brain health, and environmental concerns.
Each session blends psychoeducation, participant interaction, skill-building, and introspective exercises designed to develop insight as well as meet specific learning objectives and goals.
Avoid Healthcare Provider Burnout in Your Practice. With BreakThrough! You Empower Your Patients to Take Charge of Their Program for Recovery and Wellness.
We understand your expertise and time is in high demand. That is why we have made learning to facilitate the BreakThrough! program easy and customizable to fit your needs.
Our HIPPA-compliant program includes an online learning platform, a 230-page course text and workbook, and additional educational and supportive resources designed to shift the work of recovery from practitioners to patients to avoid provider burn-out.
