Goals/Outcomes:

  • Improve or eliminate symptoms

  • Improve management of illness

Description:

Pharmacological services provide mental health consumers with face-to-face psychiatric evaluations, psychiatric treatment, and pharmaceutical relief from psychiatric symptoms. These services are provided in a comprehensive treatment center that supports outpatient community care under the direction of the Medical Director, a licensed physician, and a licensed Nursing Director. Pharmacological services are provided based on current research indicating that mental illness is caused by an imbalance of chemicals within the brain. Medications offer relief from the symptoms of this imbalance and enable a person to better manage his/her illness.

Pharmacological services improve symptom management by reducing or
eliminating them. This is done through psychiatric evaluation and prescribing
medication. For adults this may enable them to function more effectively and
improve attention and focus.


Ongoing assessment of psychiatric needs and stability is provided. Medication is monitored for effectiveness. Clients are assisted with the acquisition of free medication (certain medications apply) through the Central Pharmacy Program and Patient Assistance Programs. Information/education about medications, contra-indications, and side effects are provided.
