Who do we serve?
We provide services to anyone seeking psychiatric care and medication management for themselves or their child.
How often are patients seen?
Initially you may been seen weekly or monthly at the start of treatment, and then less frequently as your symptoms stabilize. You will be seen at least every 10 weeks in order to adequately monitor any medications.
Do the psychiatric providers prescribe benzodiazepines?
Our psychiatric providers use the guidelines from the Maine Benzodiazepine Study Group around the use of these highly addictive medications. Clients currently on benzodiazepines (such as Xanax or Klonopin) can expect that the Psychiatric Provider may not be willing to refill this medication long-term, and will recommend tapering off this medication. In addition, clients should not expect to be offered this medication as treatment beyond 4-6 weeks. Finally, due to the risk of severe drug interactions, clients currently on opiates or medical marijuana will not be provided prescriptions for benzodiazepines.
