  • Medication Management

    banner image

    Are you having trouble finding a psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner?

    Are you faced with really long delays just to get a refill for your medication?

    Medications play an important role in the treatment of many mental health problems, including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, panic attacks, sleep problems, attention deficit disorder, substance use and other issues.

    But as important as it is, there are a lot of underlying issues that come with medication.

    Medication-related issues and medication mismanagement are major public health issues in the United States. This often occurs when patients do not use a specialist to manage their medication. We make sure to use a holistic approach when prescribing medication and avoid side effects by using the latest and most effective medications as well as encouraging specific lifestyle changes.

    Again, a great way to avoid medication errors is to consult with clinical experts who provide medication therapy management services in all care settings where patients take medications.

    Substance use disorder is a chronic disease that must be managed for the rest of one’s life. Taking care of your health and treatment on top of all your other responsibilities can be difficult at times. Another advantage of medication therapy management is fewer medical visits due to fewer medication-related complications. Your treatment team and pharmacist can help keep you safer and healthier by paying close attention to your medication, reducing the need to visit the emergency room or your physician for complications.

    One of the primary advantages of medication management is that you reduce side effects. If you are receiving treatment for a substance use disorder or a mental health condition, getting your medication managed properly can help reduce experiencing any side effects.

    When medications are carefully monitored and adjusted, (including through genetic testing and lifestyle changes), as needed, less time is spent managing complications caused by incompatible or ineffective medications. You will be able to feel better sooner without wasting time going back and forth to the doctor due to side effects, withdrawal symptoms, or even relapses.

    Medication management gives you extra help with your medication regimen to ensure that you follow your prescriber’s orders and that your prescriptions aren’t causing you problems. Having access to this extra layer of support can help reduce the risk of relapse by allowing the medication to do its job of managing your symptoms. You are more likely to stick with treatment if you have a team of professionals working together to get your medication right and minimize your discomfort along with psychotherapy.

    We recognize that medication management is an excellent tool for working with our clients. With this service, we aim to help you to:

    • Maintain your medication schedule.
    • Avoid unneeded side effects.
    • Lower the cost of addiction treatment for substanceuse disorder.

    We want to assist you in reducing hospital stays and doctor visits so that you can focus on your other responsibilities while you recover.

    Consulting clinical experts who provide medication management services is a great option to help you avoid medication mismanagement.

    While therapists in different settings may provide different types of medication therapy management services, the goal of all clinical experts providing medication management is to make sure that the best possible outcomes from treatment are achieved.

    Medication management and assessment can be provided by therapists or clinical experts. If you are unsure whether medications are the best option for you, a therapist or clinical expert can help you explore your options. Understanding how a professional can assist you and learning what medication management entails will help to alleviate many of the unknowns about therapy and medication. Knowing what to expect during the medication management assessment will also help to reduce your anxiety.

    Our mental health is intertwined with our physical health and our well-being. Traumatic experiences can leave us feeling anxious and depressed. If we do not seek treatment, these feelings can lead to destructive behaviors in our lives and relationships. A physical exam with your doctor is just as important as a mental health check-up once a year.

    Your prescriber will perform an initial assessment and ask you to complete surveys. The assessment is a summary of your symptoms that will help determine whether or not medication is a good choice for treating your mental health issues. Your prescriber will use interviewing and assessment skills to get to the root of your mental health concerns.

    After the assessment, a diagnosis is made, and a treatment strategy designed to meet your unique needs is created. You will be informed and educated about the uses and side effects of the medication if it is decided that taking medication is the best course of action.

    We use a collaborative approach, therefore you must agree to the medication and treatment options, after which the medication will be prescribed for a trial period to assess its effectiveness. Medication management is a component of a prescriber’s care. They track how effective the medication is over time to see if it is meeting your objectives.

    It is important to note that the effectiveness of psychiatric medication varies from person to person because everyone reacts differently to them. Each person’s brain chemistry causes them to respond to drugs differently; no two people will respond the same way.

    A lot of times, medications are combined with other types of therapy like individual counseling couple or family therapy, and/or behavioral therapies for substance use treatment. In fact, a combination of medication and psychotherapy has been shown to deliver the best treatment outcomes for moderate to severe issues.

    While many psychological issues do not require medication. Please keep in mind we will perform a thorough diagnostic assessment to determine if medication is right for you.

Genetic testing for psychotropic medication plays a crucial role in tailoring treatment plans for individuals by providing valuable insights into how their bodies metabolize and respond to different medications. Here’s how genetic testing helps in this process:

    Understanding Genetic Testing

    Genetic testing is a cutting-edge tool that allows healthcare providers to analyze an individual’s genetic makeup and identify specific gene variations related to psychotropic medication response. By examining these genetic markers, we gain valuable insights into how an individual’s body metabolizes and responds to different medications. This information helps us tailor treatment plans to each patient’s unique genetic profile, increasing the likelihood of finding the most effective medication with minimal side effects.

    The Benefits of Genetic Testing

    1. Personalized Medication Selection: Genetic testing enables us to match patients with psychotropic medications that are more likely to work based on their genetic profile. This personalized approach saves time and reduces the frustration associated with trial-and-error medication selection.

    2. Increased Efficacy: Genetic testing helps identify individuals who are more likely to respond positively to certain medications. By tailoring treatment based on genetic information, healthcare providers can choose medications that have a higher likelihood of working for the patient. This increases the efficacy of the treatment and improves symptom control.

    3. Optimized Medication Dosing: Genetic testing also provides valuable information about how an individual’s body processes medications. This knowledge allows us to determine the most appropriate dosage for each patient, maximizing the therapeutic benefits while minimizing the risk of adverse reactions.

    4. Minimization of Side Effects: Genetic testing can identify gene variations that are associated with an increased risk of side effects from certain medications. By understanding an individual’s genetic predisposition to side effects, we can select alternative medications or adjust the dosage to minimize the likelihood of experiencing adverse reactions.

    5. Improved Treatment Outcomes: By utilizing genetic testing, we can enhance treatment outcomes by reducing the likelihood of negative side effects and increasing medication efficacy. This leads to better symptom control, improved quality of life, and a faster path to mental well- being.

    6. Cost Savings: Genetic testing can lead to cost savings in the long run. By avoiding ineffective medications and minimizing adverse reactions, unnecessary medical visits, hospitalizations, and medication changes can be reduced. This leads to more efficient use of healthcare resources and reduces healthcare costs for both patients and healthcare systems.

    7. Patient Satisfaction: Genetic testing empowers patients by providing them with personalized treatment options based on their genetic profile. This approach enhances patient engagement, as individuals feel that their treatment is tailored to their specific needs. Increased patient satisfaction can positively impact treatment adherence and overall mental well-being.

    Our Approach:

    At our psychiatric practice, we prioritize a patient-centered approach that focuses on your unique needs and goals. When you schedule an appointment with our psychiatric nurse practitioner, you can expect:

    1. Comprehensive Evaluation: We will conduct a thorough assessment of your mental health history, symptoms, and treatment goals. This evaluation, combined with genetic testing results, will guide us in developing a personalized treatment plan.

    2. Genetic Testing: Based on your evaluation, we will recommend genetic testing to gain a deeper understanding of your genetic profile and how it relates to psychotropic medication response.

    3. Interpretation and Treatment Plan: Once we receive the genetic testing results, our psychiatric nurse practitioner will analyze the data and provide you with a clear interpretation. We will discuss the implications of the results and collaborate with you to develop a tailored treatment plan that optimizes medication selection and dosing.


    A genetic testing evaluation can be done during an intake appointment, or general session with our Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. If not a patient of ours, your in-network insurance should cover the evaluation. Otherwise, it is $200 for an evaluation and follow-up. For the genetic test, most insurance companies will cover all or part of the out-of-pocket cost, which can range from $0-$330.
