Alleviant Jonesboro Medication Management ServicesWhile talk therapy is an important part of a holistic approach to mental health treatment, we also believe that medication can be a helpful tool in managing mental health symptoms. Different medications at different doses can be helpful for people with different symptoms, and it’s also important to keep in mind that certain medications have a higher potential for abuse than others.

We work with our clients to find the best medication management plan for their individual needs, and we always keep the client’s goals and preferences at the forefront of our decision-making. We also believe in regular check-ins with our clients to make sure that the medications we’ve prescribed are still working well and that any side effects are being managed effectively. Our medication management services in Jonesboro can help you reach a place of healing and stability

The Role of Medication in Mental Health Treatment

Including medication in a treatment plan doesn’t mean that talk therapy will not be effective. Instead, it means that we believe in a holistic approach to mental health treatment and that medication can be an important part of that approach for some individuals. For example, antidepressants can help those who struggle with depression feel relief from symptoms. That relief can translate into a willingness and ability to participate in talk therapy, which can then lead to even more symptom relief.

There are many different types of mental health medications, and it’s important to work with a mental health professional who can prescribe the right type and dose for your specific symptoms. If a medication doesn’t work for you, you should communicate that to your provider so they can make a change. It may take some trial and error to find the right medication, which is where medication management comes in.

Our Approach to Medication Management

Medication management is the process of working with a mental health professional to find the right medication or combination of medications to manage your symptoms. It’s important to note that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to medication management. What works for one person may not work for another.

At Alleviant of Jonesboro, we take a collaborative approach to medication management. Medication management appointments are a chance for providers and patients to discuss medication use and efficacy so that the provider can adjust or change doses as needed and refill prescriptions. These sessions are conducted by a psychiatric nurse practitioner or a psychiatrist and are one of the facets of our comprehensive treatment plans. Some of the factors that might be considered include:

  • Symptoms
  • Goals for treatment
  • Previous experiences with medication
  • Family history
  • Any possible side effects
While we help patients stabilize their internal landscape with the use of medication, these medication management appointments are also used to create and implement a strategy of transition from medication dependency to deep holistic healing. Our goal is to help patients find a place of stability without medication, but we understand that this may not be possible or realistic for everyone, and we’ll still be here to provide support and care.
