At Vertava Health, we strive to provide our patients with effective and comprehensive care so they can see lasting results in their wellness journeys. Because many people benefit from the use of both psychotherapy and pharmacotherapy, all of our locations provide medication services to assist patients during treatment. We also offer medication management services to help our clients manage their mental and physical health challenges.

What Are Medication Management Services?
Medication management uses and monitors prescription medications to ensure that they are being taken correctly and effectively for their intended purpose. These prescription medications are typically used alongside other therapy programs to assist individuals struggling with various behavioral health conditions. Medication management services include closely monitoring these medications for the proper use and adjusting them as needed throughout treatment.
The medications prescribed may be used to treat a variety of ailments and conditions that may co-occur alongside the behavioral health condition. Alternatively, it could potentially be a side effect of treatment like withdrawal symptoms. These conditions may be related to energy levels, mood, anxiety, depression, stress, or more. Typically acting as a short-term solution, these medications help patients with their first steps in their healing journey.
Medication Management Services at Vertava Health
At Vertava Health, we do not believe in cookie-cutter treatment. Instead, we tailor each patient’s treatment plan to give them their greatest chance of finding lasting success in their healing journey. For some patients, this means a combination of taking medications and participating in a variety of therapy programs. Medicine management is a part of our patient-centered approach to treatment. This approach acknowledges that every patient is unique, and the most effective treatment will be different for everyone.
Some of our locations have psychiatrists and offer med management services throughout treatment to provide patients with this comprehensive care. If we do not have the staff at the location, we will refer you or your loved one out for a psychiatric medical assessment if necessary and coordinate care with this provider throughout treatment. Our care team will determine if such a consultation is necessary either with the initial assessment or after a few therapy sessions depending on the patient.
Because prescription medications are only a part of a comprehensive treatment plan, patients can expect to receive a thorough review of any medications they are prescribed as well as what their intended uses are. The psychiatrist will also explain any risks and answer all of their questions. Patients with a history of substance use will be closely monitored for misuse and may also be excluded from taking certain medications.
Because a combination of prescription medications and therapy can have significant benefits for some people, a behavioral health treatment facility with medication management services may be the best choice for you or your loved one.
