Weight Management Programs & Services

We have a program to fit your weight management needs — whether you've got a little or a lot to lose! Learn about us and our programs by setting up a free program orientation or read more about our programs and services below.

And remember, you don't need to live in the Charleston area to take advantage of our programs. All of our programs can be done in clinic or virtually. We are as close as your laptop or phone.

Please be aware that third party payers (private insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.) do not typically cover the cost of weight management services.

Available Programs

First Step

First Step is an eight-week lifestyle change program that offers weight loss assistance through individual weekly meetings with our Registered Dietitians, Exercise Physiologists, and Behavioral Specialists. It is appropriate for people of all weight ranges.

Focus-23 & Focus-27

Focus-23 and Focus-27 are simply extended versions of our Focus-15 program, which allow you to extend how long you follow the more structured, meal replacement-based phases of the program.


The Focus program is a 15-week lifestyle change program; we also include 3 additional follow-up visits at the end of the initial program, to further assist you with managing your weight on your own. This program is designed to induce larger initial weight losses than traditional lifestyle change programs (e.g., First Step).


A month-long program which includes a partial supplementation meal plan using shakes and bars, and one food-based meal. The program also includes weekly accountability visits with professional WMC staff.
