One of the treatment options at University Psychiatric Associates is the use of medication to help you recover from your mental health or substance abuse condition. We believe mental health and substance abuse conditions are an interaction between mind, body, spirit, and environment. The use of medication emphasizes the biologic portion of the illness and treats a broad range of mental health and substance abuse conditions. Our goal is to find the proper medication or combination of medications that will restore you to full functioning with minimal side effects.
The decision to use medication as a treatment option is a personal choice. We aim to provide open communication about your health condition and the medication options available to you. The use of medication may be in combination with other treatment options or used alone.
