Acadia Hospital’s Psychopharmacology Service provides medication clinics for children and adults in Maine who need medication to treat a mental illness or behavioral disorder. Most clients who receive medication management are referred from another area of Acadia Hospital or by a family doctor or therapist. Treatment involves 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 Acadia Hospital and asking for the Access Center at 973-6100 or 1-800-640-1211.
