Medication Management

At UHS medication management alone is not a first-line intervention with our patients, we only utilize medication management in addition to psychotherapy, either with a UHS mental health provider or the patient’s preferred mental health provider. In situations where medication management is indicated, our practice, when possible, is to initiate one medication at a time, at a low dose and titrate slowly to achieve target symptom reduction. This method is called “monotherapy,” and is a simpler and safer way to initiate medication, especially among children, adolescents and the elderly. Our goal is to decrease the possibility of an adverse reaction while achieving target symptom reduction.

It is our belief, these approaches to care, allow UHS to create a strong network of support for the patient, minimize adverse effects, increase safety, facilitate continuity of care and reach our ultimate goal of symptom reduction and increased quality of life.
