Give to LGH


Drop-In is a support group for both pre-op and post op patients. Support people are welcome to attend, too. This group is informal and will have no Center staff in attendance. Ambassadors will help to facilitate the group. The goal of this group is to give patients access to other patients for support and tips on anything weight loss related. Patients often say, “As much as your family loves and supports your journey, they sometimes don’t get it.” Other patients do, in a way that is uniquely patient centered. Bring your favorite decaf coffee and bariatric snack, if you’d like, and spend some time with people that will often become your new extended family.

These groups are not required, but patients who experience long-term success usually list attending support groups as a main reason for their success.

This support group meets at the Center for Weight Management and Bariatric Surgery office:

  • in North Chelmsford on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month from 6:00-7:00pm and the 2nd Friday of the month from 11:00am-12:00pm
  • in North Andover on the last Monday of the month at 11:00am-12:00pm
