We approach mental health in a holistic way. Community, counseling, and medication all work together to help the adolescents and families in our care find healing.
Medication can help some adolescents and parents successfully manage mental health issues. At Beyond Healthcare, we take time to explain the risks and benefits of any medications we recommend for your adolescent. We’ll always give you adequate time to make the decision that is best for your family. And if parents or other family members would benefit from medication for a mental health diagnosis, we can help with this as well.
Learn more by contacting us at 833.698.0453 or reaching out online. Whether medication is right for your adolescent or not, we can offer the support your family needs as you heal.
What Is Medication Management?
Medication management involves ensuring that the adolescents and parents in our care are receiving the best possible outcomes from the medication they choose to take. Our nurse practitioners understand the small differences between medications and how changes in dosages can have significant impacts. We closely monitor how your adolescent is responding to any medication and make necessary changes.
Each person in treatment might find wellness through a different path which may or may not include medication. At Beyond Healthcare, we celebrate many pathways to wellness by focusing on the importance of healing the whole body. Some adolescents and parents benefit from medication, and others choose not to take that path.
Medication can be helpful for individuals who are struggling with any of the following:
- Bipolar disorder
- Addictions and Co-occurring disorders
If you’re not sure whether medication is right for your adolescent, we’ll work with you to understand their unique needs. We’ll develop a treatment plan that you are comfortable with and that is in line with current best practices for medication administration.
Adolescent Psychiatry and Medication Management
Medication helps those in treatment find relief from severe symptoms of mental health issues as they build tools in therapy. Many individuals stay on their medication long-term, while others use it for a shorter period of time to reach a place of stability.
Medication for adolescents who are facing mental health challenges can also:
- Help adolescents focus on therapy
- Improve quality of life
- Reduce severe symptoms
- Address chemical imbalances
