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.

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!
