D'Amore customizes their treatment therapies for bariatric patients suffering from alcohol or drug use disorders.

Treating bariatric patients suffering from Alcohol Use Disorder is something people have been asking for. It’s not easy to talk about weight loss or addiction; nevertheless, the two relate.

D’Amore Healthcare, Inc. has expanded its treatment center to include dedicated residential facilities specifically for bariatric patients with addiction or mental health disorders. This expansion addresses recovery risks faced by individuals after the band, bypass or sleeve procedures.

D’Amore Healthcare’s Whole Person™ Bariatric Addiction Recovery Program treats the underlying behavioral or psychological issues that bolster addictive behaviors, such as alcohol or drug abuse after a weight loss surgery. In addition to specialized counseling and treatment, including dietary plans and low-impact exercise, the new facilities provide housing accommodations tailored to the needs of bariatric patients. The multi-bed facility incorporates designated bariatric rooms with adjoining bariatric toilet rooms; 5-foot-wide non-corridor doors; and bedframes with 500-pound weight limits.

“Treating bariatric patients suffering from Alcohol Use Disorder is something people have been asking for. It’s not easy to talk about weight loss or addiction; nevertheless, the two relate,” says Britten Devereux, CEO of D’Amore Healthcare, Inc. “With the medical community poised to potentially heighten its focus on obesity, the population of patients coming into facilities is on the rise, too, further emphasizing the need for thoughtfully-designed inpatient accommodations.”
