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.

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.
