How Does Medication Management Work?
Medication services address the biological component of one’s mental illness and the proper treatment of any existing brain chemical deficits. Psychotropic medication is a needed intervention in those illnesses identified as biologically-based, including a variety of mood disorders and anxiety disorders. Medication plays an important role in the overall treatment of many of those who receive services at our Practice.
Psychotropic medication can often reduce psychological barriers that would otherwise interfere with psycho-therapeutic interventions. We currently have 20 Psychiatrists and Nurse Practitioners who see a children, adolescents and adults with a wide range of presenting problems and diagnoses including:
