Many people assume that being overweight or obese is a problem that only affects adults, but the reality is that more and more young people are struggling with their weight. In fact, research has shown that overweight adolescents are at increased risk for a range of health problems, including type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and even certain types of cancer.

At Wellspring, we understand the risks associated with being overweight and the importance of helping young people achieve a healthy weight. That’s why we offer a range of programs and services designed specifically for teenagers struggling with their weight.

Whether your teen is struggling with their weight or just looking to adopt a healthier lifestyle, our team of experienced professionals is here to provide the support and guidance they need to succeed.
