Medication is often a critical component of comprehensive mental health treatment therapy programs. However, the use of medications is often misunderstood and stigmatized. Medication is not a quick fix, nor is it necessary for everyone. When properly used, medications can be highly effective at treating acute and chronic mental health symptoms and significantly improve a person’s quality of life. Medication management involves the initial evaluation of the need for medication and ongoing monitoring to ensure the safety and effectiveness of prescribed medications.

At Harmony Hills, we understand that medication is not for everyone. If medication is recommended, we take the time to explain the benefits and potential risks and allow you sufficient time to make an informed decision. If you have questions about medication management, contact us at 855.494.0357 or use our online form.

Although some people with mental health disorders can succeed without medications, many find medication a necessary and effective component of their overall treatment plan. Sometimes, medication is only needed for a short time to address acute symptoms or while working through a particular difficulty. However, long-term medication can be necessary for managing chronic symptoms and helping maintain the mental clarity needed to support treatment adherence.

No matter the length of time you or your loved one might need medication, participating in a medication management program is essential. At Harmony Hills, we understand that the decision of whether or not to use medication as part of your treatment is complicated and personal. We strive to provide you with all of the information you need to make an informed decision. If medication is deemed necessary in the treatment process, medication management will include:

  • Initial evaluation of your needs
  • Education about the benefits and potential risks of medications
  • Monitoring for safety and efficacy
  • Adjustments to dosages if and when necessary
  • Ensuring the proper use of medications

The treatment team at Harmony Hills, including psychiatrists and nurse practitioners, know the importance of understanding the subtle differences between medications, recognizing the need for adjustments, and knowing how small changes in dosages or even the times of dosages can have significant outcomes. We work closely with you to ensure the safest and most effective results from medication.
