The program aims to assist all of its graduates in earning at least an associate's degree, and about 45% of participants go on to earn bachelor's degrees. Jeremiah Program participants also engage in a variety of career-focused activities, such as resume writing and computer-skills training. However, the organization's computer lab is currently too small to accommodate all of its participants, and the technology that is available is outdated.
Helmed by Dr. Melissa Millner and registered EMT Nyki Biegel, Welcome to Wellness leads clients through a belly-shrinking low-glycemic diet plan. An initial body-mass analysis measures each participant’s BMI, lean muscle, metabolism potential, and number of unpatriotic cells, then crunches the numbers to determine optimal weight-loss game plans. In a group of no more than 50 students, slenderizers learn healthy recipes that aim to balance blood sugars, and they attend weekly potlucks to mingle and taste new dishes. Tummy trimmers can further stay on their weight-loss track with a recipe book and weekly weigh-ins, and a provided computer camera encourages clients to share questions, concerns, and trivia about Duran Duran songs with personal coaches via Skype. Though not required, meal replacements and snacks are available through Usana healthcare products, and antioxidants are recommended, as they are said to aid in detoxification.

At Cliff Lake Dental Care, Dr. Jerry Rauchwarter's friendly and relaxing manner helps banish skittishness in new patients. The exam lasts about 1.5 hours and determines the health of teeth and mouth-dwelling gum gremlins with a physical exam and x-rays. Dr. Rauchwarter conducts a full periodontal probing to test the mettle of gums and notes the location of any trouble spots or previous dental work. The doctor then screens for oral cancer, cavities, and imbalances in patients' jaws with a quick gumball-juggling test. After teeth enjoy a thorough cleaning, they have portraits taken with Cliff Lake Dental's digital x-ray machine, which utilizes a low-radiation process that reduces the risk of molars developing invisibility, mind reading, and other superpowers. After the x-rays, exam, and cleaning, Dr. Rauchwarter will deliver a clean bill of health or discuss an individually-tailored course of treatment; either way, visitors will leave with their teeth as clean and shiny as dry-cleaned dolphins.
