Support Groups in Morristown, New Jersey
Specialized Support Groups
There are two specialized support groups here at Obesity Treatment Centers of New Jersey for patients who have had bariatric surgery and are participating in one of our weight loss programs. Bariatric Support Group is specifically for patients who have had bariatric surgery within the last 12 months.
Bariatric Support Group II is for patients who have had bariatric surgery over 12 months ago. Each Support Group offers additional educational and networking opportunities for participants.

They are led by a professional who is especially experienced with the challenges of obesity such as a Registered Dietitian, a Registered Nurse, or an Exercise Physiologist, and include topics such as:
- Healthy Cooking

- Exercise Guidelines
- Coping Skills & Behavior Modification
