Understanding Medication Management
Medication management entails ensuring that the teens and adolescents in our care receive the greatest possible benefits from the medicines they take. The personalized treatment plans developed for each person include constant evaluation of the effects of medication and how they impact someone’s progress toward wellness goals.
Each person in treatment may discover wellness in a variety of ways, some of which include medication. We acknowledge many paths to wellness at Beyond Healthcare by stressing the importance of treating the whole person—including their mind, body, and soul. Some teens benefit from medication, while others do not.
Medication can be helpful for individuals who are struggling with any of the following:
- Bipolar disorder
We understand that parents want what is best for their children. If you are doubtful about whether or not a medication is the right choice, we will take the time to get to know your child and their unique needs. Together, we will create an evidence-based treatment plan that works to help them make strides toward a happier, healthier future.
The Benefits of Medication Management for Adolescents
Adolescents and teenagers who take appropriate mental health medications may get the following advantages:
- Improved focus and concentration in therapy sessions
- Reduced severity of symptoms
- Address chemical imbalances
- Improved quality of life
- Help achieve stability in mental health
If you think your teen could benefit from medication management, please contact us today. We would be happy to answer any of your questions and help your teen get started on the path to wellness.
Medication Management Works with Teen Psychiatry
After a thorough assessment, a psychiatrist will be able to make informed diagnoses regarding your teen’s symptoms and circumstances. If medication is recommended as part of the treatment plan, our team will work with you and your teen to explain all aspects of the medication. This includes how it works, the dosage, possible side effects, and what monitoring will be required.
Our psychiatrist and staff understand the small differences between medications and how changes in dosages can have significant impacts. We closely monitor how your teen responds to any medication and make necessary changes.
If you’re not sure whether medication is right for your teen, we’ll work with you to understand their unique needs. We’ll develop a treatment plan that you are comfortable with that is in line with the best practices for medication administration.
