D'Amore Mental Health Admissions


Admissions Overview

If you’re 18 years or older and have the desire for a fresh start, you’re eligible to receive services at D’Amore Healthcare®. You, a family member, physician, case manager, or social worker can all make admission referrals for inpatient behavioral health care at D’Amore Healthcare®. Our admissions process is easy! Our agents are transparent and will provide you with all the guidance that you’ll need to get started. When you call us, we will conduct an initial 20-minute assessment. Our admissions staff will break down every program option available to you or your loved one.  Next, if you are using insurance, we will verify your benefits, review your accommodation preferences, and select the D’amore Healthcare® program that is best suited for you. We will talk with you and your loved one about the length of your stay, arrival times, and any payment options.

To initiate a referral, contact our admissions department at (714) 486-0382 or complete our form for admission and care. Admission to our residential mental health treatment program requires the potential patient to meet certain requirements.

What To Expect

D’Amore Healthcare® requires a client’s previous medical history and current medical condition to be considered for our program.  We feel that this is a medical and psychological necessity that will determine whether our program will serve as a suitable treatment for someone.

A D’Amore Healthcare® admissions specialist will carefully review your medical records to determine whether our program is right for you or your loved one.  Admissions are based on each client’s medical history and needs.  We also take into account our client’s ability to participate in intensive therapy and their rehabilitation goals.

The D'Amore Difference

D’Amore takes a leading role in mental health and substance abuse treatment through Gracious Redundancy®. Gracious Redundancy (GR) is based on the empathetic delivery of education and encouragement during the treatment process.   We’ve found that this helps our patients to reach their goals.

Gracious Redundancy™ makes all the difference when our clients arrive. They will be welcomed with arms wide open by a treatment team that is ready to help them begin the recovery process.  Our staff will ease the client’s transition by carefully reviewing their records and determining any physical or psychiatric diagnoses.

The D’Amore difference can be seen in the high level of compassion and care that we provide our patients with.  We take the time to provide patients with a more thorough assessment so that we can provide them with better treatment options. We believe in providing mental health care with an unconditionally positive regard for our patients.  The benefits of this approach can be clearly seen in our treatment outcomes.

We believe that rapport and warmth pave the way for effective care.  D’Amore provides our patients with more time with their doctor. We offer more evidence-based personal care. And we impart more Gracious Redundancy®.

Insurance Benefits

Our insurance verification process can quickly recognize your carrier and coverage plan.  With this information, our admissions specialists will offer payment options that can relieve the financial stress of treatment. Insurance policies and benefits vary greatly, so it is recommended that a patient provide D’Amore Healthcare® with insurance information prior to their arrival. Your insurance carrier or managed care company will determine the suitability of care based on your evaluation and may certify a portion of a patient’s stay.

Insurance companies run independently of D’Amore Healthcare®.  They provide treatment options based on their own medical reviews.  However, our highly trained admission coordinators will work with your insurance provider to determine the coverage of your benefits and obtain authorization. D’Amore Healthcare does not accept Medicaid or Medi-Cal. Formal reviews do not guarantee payment by an insurance carrier upon final billing.
