The foundation of our program is a continuum of individual and group therapies, integrated educational sessions, case management and holistic approaches. Patients use the tools we provide to help them achieve their personal recovery goals.

GeneSight logoPharmagenomic testing is a tool we utilize in the medication management portion of our treatment services. By understanding the unique genealogy and DNA complexities of the individual, the test results paint a picture of what psychotropic medications the individual would respond to favorably, unfavorably or reactively. This helps us eliminate medications that may not work well for an individual or could, in some cases, cause an adverse reaction. This is a tool used by the attending physician in conjuncture with the multidisciplinary team to provide the best recommendations possible regarding medication management or medical-assisted treatment. It serves to supplement our expertise and is not a replacement for the multidisciplinary approach. This tool also saves time and rounds of ineffective medication regimes, while decreasing the negative side effects of mis-medicating or overmedicating patients.
