Medication Management

A medical treatment service using psychotropic medications for the purpose of rapid symptom reduction, to maintain improvement in a chronic recurrent disorder, or to prevent or reduce the chances of relapse or reoccurrence. The service includes prescribing, monitoring the effect of the medication and adjusting the dosage. Any psychotherapy provided is minimal and is usually supportive only.

Research has shown that many patients are either under or over medicated and not at an optimal level of medication that would help them in the recovery process.
With medication management, the Psychiatrist or Physician will monitor the medication’s effectiveness as well as its symptoms and side effects; medications that are not working well will not be continued. If the patient has partially responded to the medicine, the Psychiatrist or Physician will look at the next steps and with the family they will decide what might be more effective.

LifeQuest providers are making every effort to avail themselves to our active clients and new clients seeking help during these trying times. We are promoting tele-therapy as the primary option to protect our clients, clinicians, and office staff. However, if you require face to face services this may be accommodated on a case by case basis at the discretion of your provider.

If you see your therapists in the LifeQuest office, be advised LifeQuest is taking the requisite steps to prevent the spread of the virus such as active handwashing and wiping down hard surfaces often.
