What We Believe About Medication and the Brain
When it comes to the medication model for ourselves and our children, we begin by helping all of our clients understand that they do have other options. Before a final decision is made on medication, we believe that a clear understanding of the underlying cause needs to be identified with accurate evidenced based testing. After testing, we educate our clients in our drug-free treatment model and how it will address the issues in the brain that may be causing the challenges.
Treat the Symptom or the Cause?
It is important to understand that most medication is treating the symptom, not the cause. When you stop taking the medication, frequently the original condition will return. At Unique Mind Care all of our treatment plans are designed to address the underlying cause. Our clinical evidence indicates that our treatments are effective and long lasting. All treatments have been cleared by the FDA and safe for treatments.
Frequently clients will come to Unique Mind Care already on certain psychiatric medications. Sometimes the side effects of these medications may be disruptive in other areas of life. Other clients just want to stop taking the medications for various reasons. Whether you want to stop taking medications or create a med management program to reduce dosage or number of individual scripts, Unique Mind Care can help. All Medication management programs require medical supervision with a licensed Medical Doctor (MD).
