Staying connected and encouraged on your road to recovery keeps you moving in the right direction. There are going to be times where patients and their loved ones feel alone. Having a supportive community can give you that extra encouragement, inspiration, and motivation needed to keep going. That’s why we make all the effort to stay in touch with you beyond treatment.
Although your time spent under D’Amore care may be relatively brief, we’re committed to helping you live a healthy, happy life throughout the rest of your days. We put effort into helping you develop new support systems that last a lifetime.
Thanks to smartphones, it’s easier than ever to stay connected with D’Amore and fellow alumni. You can now find D’Amore on CaredFor, the mobile social media platform that keeps the conversation about addiction going.
What is CaredFor?
CaredFor is a social media platform that builds a personalized community, allowing us to share supportive content, information, and messages to our alumni, family members, and outpatient clients. With CaredFor, patients can stay connected with their fellow alumni and the recovery team.
The CaredFor app is loaded with tons of compelling content geared toward recovery — YouTube videos, TedTalks, Podcasts, stories, books, pictures, and more. This content is curated by CaredFor, D’Amore, or your partners in recovery. It can keep you motivated, inspired, and entertained through the good times and the hard times.
CaredFor also allows treatment centers like ourselves to keep track of progress by collecting health-related data pertaining to your recovery. Anything collected is private and HIPAA compliant and only used for your benefit. This allows us to connect with you on a deeper, more personal level.
Users of the CaredFor app can benefit from the following features:
- A network of known peers supporting through social engagement and sharing posts
- Keeping track of sobriety anniversaries through the recovery counter
- Recording positive life moments in the app’s gratitude journal
- Quizzes and challenges
- Private messaging
Ongoing support past treatment
CaredFor makes it easy to share helpful information for you and us. Stay up to date with events we host and even connect with our virtual support group!
The connection and support we’re able to provide through CaredFor keeps our engagement up, resulting in a higher chance for long-term sobriety and improved mental health.
It’s essential to be able to share your struggles with others who go through the same trials as yourself. And on the other hand, you should be able to share and celebrate your successes with the same people. Alumni using the app can share public or private messages. This way, you can talk about your recovery with the addiction team here at D’Amore or with your fellow alumni.
The app also allows us to send out assessments and surveys so we can track your recovery progress. This information and message capability will enable us to better understand how you’re doing and reach out when you need it most. This way, we can make sure we’re doing our best to give you care beyond your time spent at D’Amore Health Care residences.
It’s all about helping YOU!
We really do care about building long-lasting recoveries at D’Amore, and that’s why we’ve invested in CaredFor. You’re more than a diagnosis; you are a unique individual with unique challenges. That’s why we work to understand you while you’re in treatment and beyond it.
Not only do we want to hear your sober success stories, but we want you to reach out to during the hardest days. We know not every day is a good one, and we want you to be able to talk about those too.
Your experiences are what make you. And we’re invested in you. We’re here to help build the skills and ability you need to maintain recovery when life takes an unexpected turn.
Download the CaredFor app and join us in continuing the conversation about addiction. We can’t wait to see you there!
