What can I expect from psychiatry care?
Your psychiatrist at 2nd Chance provides comprehensive treatment when you come in for care. During your initial evaluation, your specialist reviews your medical and mental health history, as well as your medication use. Your specialist may also conduct special testing to assess your mental health and formulate a diagnosis.
Your psychiatrist then reviews your medication options for treating your mental health condition. When it comes to medication, the team at 2nd Chance takes an evidence-based approach and uses FDA-approved drugs to ensure you get the most effective treatment.
Together, you and your psychiatrist develop a treatment plan for your mental health condition, including medication, talk therapy, and regular follow-ups to monitor your progress. While some people can overcome their mental health issue, some conditions are chronic, such as bipolar disorder, and require ongoing medical care and management.
No matter the mental health condition you suffer from, treatment is available to help you manage the condition and live a healthy, happy, productive life.
