Medication Management

NCW has a team of psychiatrists and nurse practitioners who are focused on helping you to address any mental health concerns through the use of medications.  Our practitioners take a thorough history, listen carefully to your concerns and your goals, and with your input, determine the most appropriate ways to use medication in your care.  We believe in taking the “least intrusive” approach possible, so we will carefully and cautiously recommend medications with the goal of using a little medication as possible.

How Medication Management can help:

Medications can assist in the reduction of symptoms, including:

  • Insomnia
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • PTSD
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Attentional issues
  • Psychotic conditions
  • Mood disorders

Often, clients find that they are better able to engage in, and benefit from, psychotherapy when they are also being treated with psychotropic medication.  Psychotherapy in conjunction with psychotropic medication is often the most effective and comprehensive treatment plan for many conditions.
