The treatment of chronic illnesses, surgeries or mental health can involve the use of medications. During Medication Management, we collaborate with clients by discussing symptom changes and side effects to determine solutions that will lead to safe and effective use of medication. We work together to obtain a good medication history. We will review components such as dosage, frequency, over-the-counter and herbal or complementary medications, prescription drugs and substance use information including alcohol, nicotine and illicit drugs. All of these components and more can impact effective medication usage. There may be a need to prescribe, discontinue or adjust medications. The goal is to maximize the benefits while minimizing the side effects.
Psychiatry and Counseling services
This branch of medicine deals with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mental and emotional disorders. The Summit Group provides evaluations, assessments, counseling and individual, and family therapy to help people overcome these challenges. Using solution-focused approaches we work with clients to develop individualized plans to provide the most effective results in symptom management, goal setting and recovery planning. Likewise our therapeutic approaches can assist families with relationship development skills and conflict resolution strategies.
Psychological tests are useful tools for planning your health. For example, Bariatric surgery, or weight-loss surgery, is a life-changing procedure that can be tremendously beneficial for the right candidate. However, a patient must be prepared to follow through with the lifestyle changes and post-operative care required to make such a surgery a success. That’s why psychological testing is often requested by the patient’s physician. The Summit Group provides testing for any medical procedure that requires psychological testing to help you best guide and own your personal health.
Medication Assisted Treatment Using Suboxone®
When some people think of the word dependency or addiction, they may think it can’t happen to them, but it can. All too often, a person recovering from surgery or coping with a pain management issue may grow tolerant of medications such as Vicodin, Percocet or Oxycontin and develop an opiate dependency. Eventually, they may recognize the symptoms, but are too embarrassed to get help. A discreet option is available. The Summit Group can treat patients with Suboxone® as part of their Medication Assisted Treatment program. Suboxone® can be taken at home like any other remedy, to help avoid cravings so that you can go about managing your home, job and family. Our Suboxone® video can tell you more.
