Medication Management Services

Therapy Closeup

When therapy is not enough, our therapists work hand and hand with our in-house medication management team to provide you with a collaborative treatment plan to help achieve your goals. Medications, along with psychotherapy, are utilized to manage symptoms of behavioral and psychiatric health conditions. Our focus is on a holistic approach through the assessment and understanding of environmental, physical, behavioral, emotional, spiritual, and developmental influences. The goal of each medication differs depending on the condition it seeks to control and may only be taken with a prescription.

Understanding intake schedules, dosages, goals, risks, and benefits is essential in medication management. For this reason, our prescribers educate patients about their medications and answer any questions they may have. Our prescribers at Lotus Psychotherapy & The Refuge are also trained in mental health counseling!
