Medical services are provided by both psychiatrists and Certified Nurse Specialists (CNS). These services include the initial psychiatric assessment and ongoing psychiatric visits with the aim of managing and improving the course of psychiatric and addictive illness. The goal of the assessment is to determine the best course of treatment for our clients, and ongoing services provide education about medications and illness. Our physician and CNS staff may prescribe and monitor psychotropic medications and order nursing services depending on need. Referrals to other medical providers might be given for other medical concerns.
