Dr. Fabrizio Fannella, Psychologist, President La Promessa onlus
Dr. Fannella has over 30 years experience working with individuals suffering from addictions and opened La Promessa in 1994. He brings not only dedication for helping people but also a compassion for treating those who may be treated elsewhere without the kindness and expertise he provides.
Evyan Donch, Clinical Outreach Coordinator & Interventionist
Evyan attended UCLA's Extension programme for Alcohol and Drug Counseling and brings with her over 18 years of 12-step experience and training from one of the first Rehabs in California. She is the only trained bi-lingual ARISE® Interventionist in all of Italy, and is passionate about helping people recover from addictions and behavioral disorders. She studied Meditation, Brain Health, and Spiritually from Loyola Marymount's Extension program.
In Italy she has worked for the F.A.O. of the United Nations, the American Embassy and at the NATO base in Naples.
She is committed to helping to develop awareness, knowledge and understanding of addictions and to bringing the latest treatment methods to Italy where she has lived for over 24 years.
"My core values are compassion, empathy and ethics and I work to gently guide individuals to developing self-esteem, self-acceptance and self-love without judgement, shaming or coercing people into feeling guilty for their disease of addiction. Educate, don’t humilate! — is my motto."
