“D’Amore Healthcare is an extraordinary group of professionals that hold the hope of many individuals future as they help them transition to a better life. Their ability to patiently help their clients through very difficult times in their lives is outstanding. My family is better off because of our choice to use D’Amore and I would highly recommend their services to anyone in need of their help.”


“Without you and your staff, I don’t know what my life would be like today. You took a personal interest in my children, one by one, and loved them. You and your staff taught them to love their selves. Some say 2 out of 3 ain’t bad…D’Amore, 3 out 3 is winning the championship! Saying thank you is an understatement. Thank you though for loving, being compassionate and teaching my children life tools to become successful in life. Today is 2 years for my youngest son. I would love to be there. I will come out to California sooner than later, it is amazing to watch him grow as a man! Thank you all so much!!”


“D’Amore Healthcare led me to a path of recovery. I am so grateful to the entire staff for being patient with me and my mental health issues. I will always remember the lessons I learned in the time spent at their facilities.

Thanks to the wonderful staff at D’Amore, I was able to recover from something as scary as schizo-affective disorder. I am now a functioning member of society with a full time job and many friends in recovery. I’m not sure where I would be without this facility, but most likely dead or in a long-term psych ward. Chris is an amazing counselor who I knew cared about me. Joe, my therapist, helped me with my delusions, depression, and serious anxiety. Blaine was a lead technician when I was there and was extremely friendly and downright amazing at crisis intervention. Jennifer was able to convince me to come to treatment and start a new life. Thank you D’Amore, without treatment centers like yours, the world would be a much darker place.”

“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.”


“They helped me with my depression.”


“Amazing program. I can’t say enough good things about D’Amore. Staff was extremely caring and built an awesome rapport. The doctor was knowledgeable and helpful and thanks to them I have a life worth living today.”


“I came to D’amore at the end of my rope, my life was out of control. The program really works, iI just completed my stay and am leaving feeling great, as a matter of fact I have not felt this good since I was in college. I cant wait to get back to my family, ready to embrace life and all the joy the world has to offer.”


“D’Amore provided me support for achieving my goals, mostly through encouragement, believing in me, positivity and love. Therefore I was there about 3 months. The accommodations are clean and safe. Another place to call home. I loved the family dinners. A time and place to really feel like a family, to express your feelings and concerns – to laugh, to cry. I think someone new in recovery must find the human connection.”


“A friend recommended D’Amore to me. She really liked it. I found it to be a serene atmosphere. They kept me accountable. I found staff to be loving and supportive. If I was down or concerned or troubled, I could go to staff and they always had the right words for me. I am completely satisfied by D’Amore’s services.”


“It was while my son was at D’Amore Healthcare that I found he was definitely more positive in his outlook on life. He sounded happy all the time there. His therapists updated me regularly on his progress and care and I felt comfortable enquiring whenever I need to. A very professional staff from the admissions process to his discharge. My son is doing really great! I would recommend D’Amore to anyone in need of this type of service.”


“Everything from different types of groups to the atmosphere, to meeting with the psychiatrist made D’Amore unlike any other mental health care facility that I have ever been to. Dr El was honestly the best psychiatrist. I feel like he really listened to me as an individual rather then just another patient and that made me feel so much more comfortable every time I met with him. I love all the medical staff which were very helpful and always educated me on my medications and checked up on me to make sure I was doing well. I can’t thank D’Amore enough for giving me that extra love and attention I needed to bring myself back from the dark place I was in. Thank you again so much D’Amore!!!I came to D’amore at the end of my rope, my life was out of control. The program really works, iI just completed my stay and am leaving feeling great, as a matter of fact I have not felt this good since I was in college. I cant wait to get back to my family, ready to embrace life and all the joy the world has to offer.”


“When my son was transferred to D’Amore from another rehab facility, due to his mental health issues, I was scared, worried and felt like his life and mine were on a downward spiral. His future looked bleak. I had just returned to my home state after checking him in to the other place, and couldn’t see him or them, and it was terrifying. But the staff assured me that he was in the right place, and they could help him. They worked hard with him, and all his issues, and finally got his mental health diagnosis right, so that he could get on the correct medication. D’Amore helped to turn his life around, and he is now stable and living on his own. I’m so grateful to them for helping him get his life back.”
