AMFM is here to help you or your loved one take the next steps towards an improved mental well-being.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is simple: we’re here to support your entire journey to wellness, knowing that it’s about so much more than just therapy or medications. That means every detail — from the use of evidence-based treatments and the nurturing of positive relationships to the nutritious meals prepared by our “food is medicine” style chefs — is crafted with warmth, strategy, and meticulous attention.

From the moment you walk through our doors, we make sure you’re surrounded by a team trained to support your wellness journey – and not just the doctors and therapists. Everyone you meet is ready to help with understanding and compassion. Our treatments are carefully planned but always flexible, adapted to meet your unique needs and what you feel works best for you. After all, we want to make sure your path to well-being feels right for you, every step of the way. 

Our Approach

AMFM’s strategy for mental health recovery breaks through traditional treatment methods.

Here’s how:

Personalized Care:

We can’t build a plan that will work for you unless we take the time to get to know you. And since every recovery journey begins with a story, we start by listening intently to yours. Through comprehensive assessments, we dive deep into understanding how you ended up where you are- your symptoms, your history, your struggles, and your strengths. What have you tried before? What approaches feel like they align with your values? Equipped with this deep dive into everything you, we create a treatment plan that exactly matches your strengths and challenges. Our treatment plans are living documents, evolving as you progress, ensuring that your care remains as dynamic and unique as you are.

Beyond the Medical Model:

Sure, medication can play a crucial role in recovery– but it shouldn’t be the sole focus. Our emphasis is on evidence-based, compassionate approaches that explore and address the root causes of distress, complemented by medication when necessary. Our care tackles both the symptoms and the underlying issues, fostering a more sustainable path to wellness.

An Array of Treatment Options:

Even the most effective treatments will never be one-size-fits-all, which is why AMFM offers a range of treatment options. From Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and beyond, our treatments are as varied as the individuals we serve. If a treatment is known to be effective and helpful, we want to have it on hand for our clients.

Community and Experiential Learning:

Healing doesn’t happen in isolation. It thrives in connection and real-world experiences. At AMFM, we weave community engagement and experiential learning into the fabric of our treatment plans. We believe in creating opportunities where clients can apply their learnings, rebuild their confidence, and forge meaningful connections with the world around them. An integrated approach not only enhances recovery but also helps incorporate sustainable wellness practices into everyday life.

AMFM is about more than just treatment; it’s about transformation. We’re committed to walking with you on your journey to recovery, providing the personalized care, groundbreaking modalities, and community connections you need to rewrite your story.

Whole-Person Wellness

There’s no part of you that doesn’t influence your mental health, and vice versa. Human beings can’t be separated into physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual components; we’re always everything at once. At AMFM, we shape our approach to recovery with this comprehensive understanding, making sure that all parts of you are thriving.

Nutrition and Physical Wellness:

The food we eat plays a big role in how well we feel. Our chefs make meals that nourish the body and help us feel good mentally and emotionally. The “food as medicine” philosophy is a cornerstone of our health and nutrition program, taking full advantage of the way diet affects mental health.

Mental and Emotional Resilience:

Our goal isn’t just to fix the problems you came in with, but to help you become more resilient mentally and emotionally. With personalized therapy and supportive group dynamics, we explore and reframe narratives that challenge wellbeing. To help you navigate life’s challenges with confidence, we’ll provide the tools and insights you need to feel empowered and confident. In more ways than one, you’ll leave feeling stronger than when you came.

Our facilities are an integral part of the treatment process at A Mission for Michael. AMFM’s homes offer a calming environment for our clients making a difficult transition.

It’s critical for our clients to have a safe and structured environment to build the tools they need to help them heal. Our facilities are a stable environment for individuals who need a good place to develop tools and coping strategies to help maintain lasting healing.
