UPDATE: Trevose Behavior Modification Program Availability

Thank you for your inquiry about the Trevose Behavior Modification Program.

If you are interested in applying for one of the Trevose Behavior Modification Program Satellite Groups, first check the Satellite Group List to see if a group that you may be interested in has openings available.  Then please do the following:

Write TBMP a letter stating the following:
  1. List your 3 choices of Satellite Group; your 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice of Satellite Group location.  Nearly ALL Satellite Group locations have a "waiting list" of 3 months or more, so include all 3 choices.
  2. Tell us about your weight problem and what you have done about it in the past.
  3. Tell us why you think you are now ready to lose weight.
Enclose a stamped, self-addressed business-size envelope with your letter and mail it to:

PO Box 11674
Philadelphia, PA 19116

Please keep checking the TBMP website for updates on our program, and for information on which Satellite Groups that we will be accepting new applicants for.

If your 3 choices of Satellite Group are full or if there are no Satellite Groups located near you, there are many teaching hospitals and universities throughout the country that run weight loss programs.  A number of these programs use behavior modification, and a number of them do not.

Information on University-based weight loss programs is available from the National Institutes of Health's Weight-control Information Network (WIN).

Please keep in mind that WIN cannot verify whether or not a particular program uses behavior modification.
