What is Psychiatric Medicine?
There are some cases where an individual may benefit from psychiatric medication on top of their therapy sessions. For this reason, BHFS Medical and Behavioral Services offers psychiatric medicine. These medications influence the chemicals in the brain that regulate emotion and thought so they can reduce symptoms such as, but not limited to:
- Depression and anxiety
- Delusions and hallucinations
- Bipolar disorder
- Eating disorder
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
Our trained team of psychiatrists is here to work with you to give you what you need to live a successful and enjoyable life. For more information on our psychiatric services, contact clinical director Dr. Dwane Allen at our Lewisville, TX location today.
"Was surprised to see you guys offering suboxone treatment! I've been seeing Dr. Gray for about 2 years and have been suggesting that they integrate it into their services. I have been doing it for about a month now and I am definitely impressed by the results."- A.W. / Google / Oct 03, 2021
"I have been a patient at BHFS for about 6 months now and although their service was top notch, I wasn't seeing phenomenal improvement in myself until they started their suboxone treatment with me. I feel like I am finally the man I am supposed to be. Very grateful they added this addition to their clinic as not many clinics in my area provide this service."- J.H. / Google / Oct 02, 2021
"Friendly staff. Very kind, caring and considerate. Wanted to do their best to advocate for me and my child."- A.L. / Google / Oct 01, 2021
"The clinic was very nice! I was able to learn more about therapy. The staff is clean and just the right size to have caring conversations to develop personally. I appreciate Mrs.Gray's presence and timely help as we complete services with her assistance."- T.J. / Google / Sep 29, 2021
"I have just started counseling and am hoping for a life changing experience. It is a friendly atmosphere and my counselor assured me of success if I do my part, which I will. Looking forward to feeling human again."- G.P. / Google / Sep 28, 2021
How Do I Get Psychiatric Medication?
Psychiatric medications are prescribed after one or more meetings with one of our psychiatrists. Typically, before prescribing any medication, we will meet with you to get to know you and your struggles, your goals, and your health and medication history. Before we prescribe any medication, we will come up with a treatment plan, which usually includes therapy to help you get the best outcome possible. After a prescription medication is provided, we will give your body time to adjust to the medication and evaluate if the medication is working in the way it should. Sometimes a lower or higher dose may be necessary, and other times, a different medication may need to be prescribed due to bad side effects or something else. Our team of medical and behavioral doctors is here to help you!
