Medication alone is almost never the treatment of choice for most mental health problems. There is a large body of research showing the effectiveness of psychotherapy with most psychiatric conditions. In conditions such as anxiety and mood disorders, for which medication is often effective, psychotherapy is often equally effective and may significantly decrease the likelihood of relapse versus medication alone. However, medication may be a very important piece of the treatment puzzle.
Typically, a patient is seen by a psychologist or other licensed mental health provider and is receiving some form of psychotherapy before being referred for a medication evaluation. Our physicians/nurse practitioner are available to provide evaluation and psychopharmacological treatment when medication is a treatment option being considered. However, our clinicians sometimes require patients to be receiving ongoing psychotherapy with a licensed mental health provider. If the patient is not currently receiving psychotherapy it may be possible to receive such treatment from one of our other clinicians.
