by | Sep 30, 2023

The world of psychiatric services is vast and intricate, comprising various approaches, methodologies, and specialized practitioners. At Essential Touchstones, we pride ourselves on offering a comprehensive range of psychiatric services to meet the unique needs of each individual.

That’s where medication management comes in. At Essential Touchstones, we prioritize ensuring that every patient is on the right medication, at the right dose, for the right duration.

But it’s not just about the prescription—it’s about the holistic approach. Regular check-ins, understanding potential side effects, and assessing the medication’s impact on the patient’s day-to-day life are all integral aspects of medication management.
