World-class, holistic approach to what we’re eating, and what’s eating us. Credentialed, professional staff address diet, exercise, motivation, conditioning, precursors, predictors, habits, reactions, and responses, while using an adult learning model. Very empowering treatment! Everything revolves around the individual’s choices—past, present, and future. State-of-the-art fitness center with indoor & outdoor pools. Delicious, calorie appropriate meals, with input from clients. Massage therapists on staff, registered dietitians, psychologists, nurses, exercise physiologists, all deliver excellent services & classes. More, and varying types of classes each day than one can attend. Top-of-the-line apartment accommodations. Well worth the price point, for a life-changing & life-saving program.

Three weeks in the Structure House residential program resulted in my being able to change my relationship with food. The entire staff was positive and supportive. I practiced my new eating style in the dining room with other congenial participants. Our group will continue to stay in touch for future check ins. I was encouraged to use the gym through a series of classes that introduced me to the machines. I was introduced to Drumming and Zumba, both of which I loved. My therapist helped me with core issues that resulted in my using food as comfort even when I was not hungry. I was never hungry even though I was on a severely restricted caloric intake. I plan to return in six months for a tune up.

Structure House was much more than I expected. The balance of Body, Mind, Spirit and Nutrition were phenomenal and well articulated. For the first time in my life, I know i have the tools to become a healthier person and will enjoy life as God intended. Power in knowledge, self awareness and effort! Thank you so much!

My 2nd stay was great. The instructors of the classes are especially good, I usually took two fitness classes per day, including aqua fit, and precautions were usually taken with spacing and cleanliness. The apartments had been updated and are quite comfortable. It takes some time to get used to the food ordering system, so getting that instruction prior to your stay would be a big benefit. Everyone in my group, meaning the people that started the same day as I did had bruises from the blood work, so the nurse needs to use a smaller needle or be better trained on how to do that without that happening. It was a first for me in all my trips to have blood work done. The nutritionists were all very helpful, and always took time with my questions. I would suggest that the director make time to meet each participant and to spend more time making sure people know who she is, and just being more available during the day, meaning, out and about around the people and activities to answer questions or just be more friendly. I started on a Monday, which was a bit unusual, and didn't have anyone welcome me or give me a heads up as far as what to do on the first day.

First rate facility offers a comprehensive approach to losing weight, maintaining weight loss, and living a healthy life. Degreed/credentialed psychologists, nutritionists, and exercise physiologists make on-campus visits interesting, informative, and fun. The Structure House campus is large and beautiful with 2 swimming pools and a private hiking trail in the woods. Staff is friendly and supportive. COVID precautions were scrupulously followed 24/7 everywhere on campus. Not only did I lose weight during my visit, I also had an opportunity to practice positive behaviors that turned into habits by the time I returned home. Structure House gave me a great toolbox so could maintain my healthy habits when I returned home.

Stayed at Structure House for 4 week program. Learned so much about nutrition, physical hunger vs. emotional eating, and physical activity. The staff was great, exercise classes were fun and often challenging but not a “boot camp” experience. I have continued to improve my health upon my return home based on the foundations of “structured eating and exercise”. I had a “life changing” experience there, and plan to return yearly if possible. I would recommend Structure House for anyone wanting to enjoy a healthier life both physically and emotionally.

The lessons I learned about my issues with food... the support and friendships that feel lifelong...I am currently trying to figure out when I can go back, but this time bring my my mother and daughter. It was an experience that I will never forget and will likely keep attending for years in the future. I lost 7 pounds in one week, but more importantly I have the tools to keep this healthy eating going. The psychologists were a huge part of the journey. Truly, I could write a 5 page essay on how incredible this program is. Love and Miss you, Structure House Crew!!!

Structure House is an amazing facility. I was able to make progress in terms of the psychological and emotional component of my food addictions. The Nutrition component of the program is awesome and the staff is courteous and helpful. Apartments are beautifully appointed and comfortable..... My physical fitness regimen there helped me achieve my goals ! I highly recommend Structure House...

This health and wellness facility is a wonderful place to learn how to take care of your body, mind and soul. The food is good, the classes are great and the staff is wonderful! I am so glad my husband attended in January 2020 and I came for a short time as a support person. We are using our new skills and tools at home now, so we can continue on a successful path.

Very professional. Every working professional at SH that we encountered, and there were a couple dozen, were very focused and efficient with one one aim: to give the participant the tools to manage eating issues. It is hard to exaggerate just how good they are. The facilities are great, the rooms very convenient and comfortable, the pool warm and easy to work in, the gym is easy to use and has equipment geared to those with limited mobility as well as the athlete. But more than anything the most helpful piece are the top of their field therapists (many come from nearby Duke and work as clinicians) and the lectures. They are always available and right on point. The best money I have spent on my health in more than 25 years.

In actuality, I've reviewed Structure House hundreds of times, if all the times I've sung its praises were known. It is my go-to place, my safe haven, my refuge. It has been Life-changing, not only due to a 150 pound weight loss but because I've released at least that amount of negative emotions and the vicissitudes of life which kept me morbidly obese. There have been many changes since I first started coming in 1991, but the basic premise has stayed the same--good heLth and well being.

I have ben to Structure House six times and plan to go every year as long as I am able. It is a most attractive place with a friendly, caring staff, excellent lectures, a variety of classes. I was first attracted to it by the name, because structure was exactly what I needed in my life and it provided just the right amount. I have kept my journal faithfully and stayed in touch with my wonderful therapist. The program carefully considers the ongoing needs of the many return clients who come back for a "tune-up" on a regular basis.

I had a great experience at Structure House. The psychological and nutritional information was pertinent and practical. The staff was amazingly knowledgeable, approachable and dedicated. My only reason for not giving a full 5 stars is for the fact that the fitness facility was about to undergo major renovations and was not in the best shape. While I thought the fitness staff was excellent, the new facilities should make a huge difference. Also, as a person who is in relatively good physical condition, I found the equipment a little too basic. I hope this will also be upgraded with the renovation. Also to note, Chef John does an amazing job stretching the calories and making the food quite tasty. Thanks to everyone at Structure House. I have really turned things around. Down 25 lbs in 8 weeks!

As a 22 year supporter and client of the now discontinued Duke DFC program, I was delighted to see how effective the Structure House program is. The program is well-designed for both the first timer who needs to change their lifestyle and the “graduate” who want reinforcement and occasional course correction.

The facility is extremely nice both the classrooms and especially the apartments! The setting is beautiful! The holistic approach that they take, approaching not just weight loss but lifestyle changes, helps to ensure the success long after you leave. Thank you structure house.

Generally positive impression. The living accommodations were nice and exceeded my expectations. The fitness center was impressive. Of the classes, I found the nutrition ones to be the nest. the dinings room was nice, but I would like to see a few more items on the menu, especially in the area of entree substitutes, such a a beef dish. Online menu really ought to tabulate total portions within the food group’s for each meal and day submitted. Fitness center did not always have a staff member in the gym, and this was a negative. Similarly, the was no lifeguard at the pool when I swam. Even the addition of one hour a day in which a lifeguard is present would help. Heart rate readings on the treadmill were not always reliable. All these matters pertain to safety and a sense of security. Another security issue for me was rhe number of times the gate through which cars enter the facility was left open. Structure House is an outstanding facility offering an integrated approach to better health ,but there are a few issues that require resolution.

Likes Nicely renovated spacious apartments with comfortable adjustable beds, nice shower with handheld shower head and good water pressure, blackout window shades Good tasting and filling meals that you can customize or makes substitutes, eat in dining room or have delivered to your apartment Tote bag helpful Full schedule of classes Digging deeper sessions Drum Alive class Cooking demo Pickleball Qi Gong Meditation Ben is a very knowledgeable dietician Cooking demo was fun Dining room clean and good service from Greg, Shamia Dislikes Qi Gong 7am instructor was 15 mins late Guided therapeutic writing workshop instructor didn't show up Room cleaned when asked not to and my valuables were out Lab test 7am rescheduled No electronic handouts, highlighter and tabs would help but app would be best to take notes and find reference materials App with class schedule and notification reminders would be helpful Most participants were 60-80 years old and seemed here for social retreat Main building needs renovation, exterior of apartments need painting, landscaping needs work with dead grass Scale doesn't work to track with badge No pilates class just sales pitch for 1:1 paid sessions Getting started with fitness scheduled for Friday when only here for a week. Need education of equipment and modifications for injuries up front to use gym on own Orientation need to go over class descriptions and discuss checking mailbox daily for important updates Cookbook should be included in program cost, recipes on app would be helpful, recipes need prep and cooking time from start to finish Nutrislice order confirmed but didn't have order on 7/6 because my name was entered wrong as Cynthia instead of using Cindy I have on my forms, Sundra argued with me about my name instead of apologizing and fixing it Cooking demo chef touched phone, touched meat then cupboards and pans so not good food handling Have instructors do handouts the same way either with hole punches or no hole punches and stapled or not stapled
