Some mental health problems cannot be resolved through counseling alone.
Family Counseling Service’s medical professionals provide medication assessment and management services. Services include:
- Psychiatric evaluation (determines diagnosis and recommends medication)
- Medication management (follow-up to monitor progress with medication)
- Psychiatric nursing
- Psychiatric case management
Our psychiatric treatment staff work closely with FCS therapists to ensure that the goals you are addressing in therapy match up with the work you are doing with the medication provider.
“Personalized Medicine”: One of the services we offer our patients is the option to participate in Pharmacogenetic Testing. By providing a simple saliva sample that is then sent to a lab for analysis, your psychiatrist can get a detailed genetic report that will help them know how your body processes certain medications, allowing them to prescribe the right medication for you – the first time.
Personalized Medicine means no more “trying out” medications until you find the right one. No more wondering what, if any, the side effects of a medication will be. Best of all, almost all insurances, including Medicare and Medicaid, cover the cost of this test. Ask our staff for more information by calling the number below.
