Psychiatry and Medication Management
The Psychiatry and Medication Management program oversees medical treatment of psychiatric disorders. Medication is frequently used alone or in conjunction with other services like therapy to stabilize and/or eliminate the symptoms that accompany psychiatric disorders.
The psychiatrist is the only person on our treatment team who can prescribe, discontinue or adjust medications. It is important to collaborate with your psychiatrist by discussing symptom changes, side effects or by asking questions that will lead to safe and effective utilization of medication.
- Intake evaluation
- Medication monitoring
- Crisis intervention
- Ongoing treatment
- Treatment plan review
Anyone experiencing symptoms that cause distress or interfere with usual activities or responsibilities can be referred to a psychiatrist. Some insurance companies require you to use specific providers. Community Hospital and the County Office of Behavioral Health strive to make services available to everyone, but you may be required to utilize the providers that are designated by your insurance company. Depending upon your income, you may have a co-pay fee.
Duration of services
Services are available to you as long as you and the treatment team feel you would benefit from continuing the service.
