Sometimes, after an evaluation, we will recommend the use of medication as part of your treatment plan. Our clinicians have extensive experience and expertise in using medications appropriately and minimally. Our philosophy is that medications should be used only when there is evidence in its favor, and usually in combination with other approaches, such as psychotherapy. When medications are indicated, they can be extremely helpful when used carefully.
Identifying the right medication type and dosage can be an ongoing challenge. Not only does every person react differently to various drugs, what worked for you last year may no longer be sufficient now. Our bodies change over time, and our needs change, as well. Therefore, continually monitoring and assessing your medication intake through medication management is important.
Medication management is just one of the services we provide at RIVIA Medical. We are especially adept at helping patients discover what medicine works best for them – as well as helping to ensure their particular medication mix continues to work well over time.
Safe, Effective Use of Medication
Choosing an appropriate drug therapy is the first place to start when it comes to managing your medication needs. Our psychiatrists have the training and experience needed to determine what may work best for a patient, depending on their medical history, existing conditions, and overall health, as well as other factors, including patient preference.
The RIVIA philosophy of care is centered on our belief in holistic care, which takes all of you – body, mind, spirit, community, relationships, etc. – into account when determining a treatment regimen. Because we aim to restore your health as naturally and efficiently as possible, we choose medications carefully. We look for those that will relieve your symptoms with the least amount of undesirable side effects or disruptions to other areas of your life. We do not over-medicate – and we stress the importance of drug compliance with our patients.
