Adult Day Treatment

Always mindful of Recovery (AMORE) is group therapy that falls under DT.

DT serves adults with a primary diagnosis of serious or serious and persistent mental illness (who may also have co-occurring chemical use diagnosis or brain injuries). The training enables individuals to live in the community with improved functioning at work, school, and in social relationships.

Therapeutic interventions may include:

Group psychotherapy

Motivational interviewing

Integrated co-occurring diagnoses strategies

Individualized treatment planning

Mind and body integration strategies

Enhanced Illness Management and Recovery

Social skills education and practice

A multi-disciplinary team of mental health professionals and practitioners provides treatment under the guidance of a qualified clinical supervisor at our Buffalo and St. Cloud offices.
An ongoing program within DT is:

Always Mindful of Recovery (AMORE)

Group therapy for those phasing out of the Adult Day Treatment Program. Participation is also available to individuals who have not been in DT but may benefit from a group format in addition to individual therapy.

Hours for AMORE: Mondays 1:00 – 2:30 PM
