Medication Management

We provide medication management services to those who attend psychotherapy.

Outpatient medication management involves the initial evaluation of the patient's need for psychotropic medications and their medication history, selecting the medication(s) to be used and ordering a prescription, followed by ongoing medical monitoring of the medications effectiveness and desired outcome by a qualified physician or nurse practitioner. Psychotropic medications are a critical part of the treatment of certain mental health problems with more serious symptoms. Utilizing the right medication can reduce or eliminate symptoms and provide relief. Depending upon the problem being addressed some medication usage is short term and for other serious and persistent psychiatric illnesses may be ongoing. Since psychological research has fully established for over the past thirty years that the combination of medication usage and psychotherapy are far more effective than medication usage alone, Associates in Behavioral Science requires patients to agree to attend psychotherapy in order for us to provide medication management.
