Medication mismanagement is a significant public health issue in the United States, resulting in millions of preventable adverse events each year. GD Psych Services, LLC provides comprehensive mental health medication management services to help patients safely and cost-effectively achieve the best results from their medications. While working closely with a professionally trained mental health counselor, patients learn how to actively manage their medications, with an added emphasis on identifying, preventing, and resolving medication-related issues. Our goal is to ensure that each medication – including those prescribed for mental health conditions – is right for the patient, resulting in the best possible treatment outcomes.
Available to adults, seniors, and adolescents over age 12, our medication management services are beneficial for anyone who uses prescription medications, non-prescription medications, herbals, or dietary supplements. Patients that may benefit the most include those who take several medications, those with several health conditions, those who have questions or issues with their medications, those who take medications that require close monitoring, or those who obtain their medications from more than one source. Highly individualized for each patient, our mental health medication management program includes a medication therapy review, personal medication record, medication-related action plan, intervention and/or referral, documentation, and follow-up.
If you have any questions about the medication management services offered by GD Psych Services, LLC, please contact us at 505-218-6383 today.
