Part of creating a well-rounded treatment plan includes medication management. At Empathy Behavioral, we understand that for many patients, medications play a significant role in their recovery. Medications can help relieve symptoms, but the results vary from patient to patient. We take the time to thoroughly understand our patients and their needs and create a medication management plan that is right for them.
What is Medication Management?
Medication therapy management (MTM) is a psychiatric service and program that involves creating a strategy to improve a patient’s medication adherence. As your psychiatrist, we will oversee your prescription medications to ensure that the medication is taken correctly to avoid potential risks such as overdosing, underdosing, missing medications, or accidentally taking the wrong medication.
Is Psychiatric Medication Management Right for You?
Our psychiatric medication management program is beneficial to patients taking prescription medications. Our medication management program might be right for you if:
You struggle with understanding and adhering to the medication regimen and its effects.
You are not receiving the desired outcome.
You take multiple medications that each have different requirements.
You have a goal of enhancing your medication adherence.
