Medication Management

For some people, the use of prescription medication as part of their overall treatment plan can be beneficial to helping them deal with the challenges associated with their mental, emotional, and/or behavioral issues.

Medication ManagementAt Alder Grove, our team of providers is dedicated to helping people find the best treatment options for their needs so that they can achieve mental wellness and live a healthy, productive life.

 

What to Expect during Medical Management Appointments

Medication management and prescribing services are provided through Alder Grove Health Services, Inc. As part of these services, clients will meet with one of our board-certified psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners to:

  • Discuss current and past areas of concern.
  • Develop a thorough mental and physical health history.
  • Determine if a psychiatric medication is recommended for them.
  • Determine their options for safe, evidence-based medication.

If medication is recommended as an effective and safe option, the nurse practitioner may order labs and/or collaborate with the clients’ primary care provider. Given that Alder Grove values a team-based approach, the nurse practitioner may also collaborate with the clients’ psychotherapist when appropriate.

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Attention issues
  • Mood instability disorders
  • Thought disturbances
  • Other emotional and behavioral disorders
