Medical Residential Programs


Instead of using medication to treat the symptoms of various conditions, the Lifestyle Medicine Program places focus on getting to the root of our guests’ health issues. Through physical assessment by a medical doctor and lifestyle education, our participants learn to identify less-desirable lifestyle habits and to make positive changes.

Patients with the following medical issues will be placed in this program:

 Heart problems, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high triglycerides, depression, anxiety, obesity, migraines, digestive problems, cancer prevention, addictive behaviors, substance abuse, MS, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, autoimmune disorders, medication decrease, boosting your immune system to fight disease, among many others.

 We offer each participant a restful, stress-free stay that has been tailored with their personal, and health needs in mind. Our natural and soothing environment is the perfect place for addressing your concerns. The committed staff of our program will guide you into a unique healing experience.

 ​Whether it is a nature walk, a session with your personal fitness trainer, a tasty meal, a relaxing massage, a stimulating lecture, or an insightful counseling session, you will experience increased energy and a calm that you may not have had for a long time.

We ask for a $300 deposit - this is your commitment to yourself that you are going to make these changes in your life and regain your optimal health.

The deposit is deducted from the total cost of the program.


At Black Hills we strive to keep our costs low to benefit our guests, and we do not believe in hiding costs.  Our programs are comprehensive and all-inclusive, but if you choose additional services or products, and we need to add anything to your account, we will discuss it with you first. The cost per day is only about $300, which is the same cost of a good day’s vacation, and you will be receiving all the previously-listed services, treatments and doctor’s visits, included in the program price.

We recommend the 20-day program, because it will be the most comprehensive in assisting you to establish your lifestyle changes and will give you enough time to reach your health improvement goals. But, if time or finances are a constraint, you may choose a shorter program.

Some medical guests have limitations that may require a companion to assist them with mobility and personal care issues. For such guests, we offer a special companion fee.

You are welcome to discuss these options with our Guest Services Representative.
