Support Groups

Our support groups offer an opportunity to listen what other patients have experienced in their journeys. You are not required to speak—only to listen. Our bariatric surgeons attend support groups from time to time, so it is a great chance to ask questions. Support groups are free and do not require registration.

Please note: For everyone's safety, our in-person support groups have been suspended.

We hope to offer in-person support groups again once it is safe at these Northern Light Health locations:

  • Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor on the first Friday of each month, 4:30-6:30 pm
  • AR Gould in Presque Isle on the first Wednesday of each month, 5-6:30 pm*

We also offer an online support group. To join our online support group, please contact Valerie or Tama.

To keep everyone safe from COVID-19, our in-person support groups are temporarily suspended.

Led by Surgical Weight Loss staff, this support gropu is intended for both pre-op and post-op patients. It is free and no registration is required.

When it is safe to meet again, the group will reconveine the first Friday of each month from 4:30 to 6:30 pm on Grant 2 in the Brandow Conference Room at ​Northern Light Eastern Maine Medical Center, 489 State Street, Bangor, Maine.
