Medication

Just like any other type of medical problem such as diabetes or heart disease, psychiatric conditions can have physical causes. The physical cause is often associated with a chemical imbalance in the part of the brain that controls emotions and behavior. Contrary to some persistent myths, these "brain disorders" are very treatable and have a favorable prognosis. If we believe you have a “physical” cause to your mental health problem we will prescribe a medication that is best for your unique situation. Although medications can be extremely effective, we do not see them as “the answer.” Rather, we view medication treatment as a helpful tool in addressing the “chemical” aspect of your mental health difficulties.
