Medication Management

About Medication Management

Medication Management services are a spectrum of patient-centered, prescriber guided, collaborative services that focus on medication appropriateness, effectiveness, safety, and adherence with the goal of improving mental health outcomes.

At Complete Mind Care our prescribers are highly trained Psychiatrist and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners. When taking the medications, finding the most appropriate medication and dosage is essential, which is why our prescribers frequently collaborate with one another, to ensure a suitable treatment plan. We understand that mental wellness shouldn’t include staying on medication forever, so our providers are equipped at identifying individuals who may also be a candidate for alternative therapies, such as TMS and Esketamine/Spravato.

Provider Collaboration

Patients will meet with a psychotherapist first, to assess diagnoses, current challenges, and strategies in managing life stressors. This collaboration will provide a thorough understanding of a patient’s mental health state and appropriate treatment options.
