“I wasn’t sure what to expect when I was told that I needed assistance from a residential facility. The thought of being in a residential facility was intimidating. I am so glad I had the opportunity to go to D’Amore. The staff were caring, concerned, kind, and dedicated to helping me get better. Celebrating victories with house members and BHAs as well as working through things that looked like defeats (in individual and group therapy) was the support I truly needed to move forward.
The psychiatrist, his assistant, and the nurse took great care to make sure that the medication I was receiving was actually effective and moving me in the right direction.
The implementation of a schedule and the need to adhere to it were so helpful in assisting me to get back into a routine. I am beyond thankful for morning wakeup, daily activities, and lights out. My life had become so far from normal in terms of daily routine, that this was a huge help in transitioning me back into a productive and healthy lifestyle once I left D’Amore.
The desire to help and care doesn’t stop once you leave. The staff continues to be available for encouragement and assistance. They truly want to see you succeed beyond your stay in the facility. What looked like the worst thing in the world to me, when I was told I would have to stay in a residential facility for 6 weeks, became one of the greatest blessings in my recovery. I’m truly thankful to D’Amore for the help they provided.”
