The Psychopharmacology Service provides medication clinics for children and adults who need medication to treat mental illnesses or emotional and/or behavioral disorders. Most clients are referred from another service of The Acadia Hospital or by a family doctor or therapist. Treatment entails thorough evaluation followed by careful monitoring and follow-up visits. The clinics are staffed with LCPC's, LCSW's, nurses, clinical nurse specialists, psychiatric mental health nurse practitioners, and psychiatrists who work collaboratively with the patients and their community providers to treat complex psychiatric disorders.
Our programs are easily accessible by calling The Acadia hospital and asking for the access center at 973-6100 or 1-800-640-1211.
