Dealing with a mental health issue can be overwhelming, whether you’re experiencing it firsthand or witnessing it in a loved one. Even so, they are fairly common, affecting approximately 20% of American adults as of 2021. These disorders can vary widely from one person to another, so it’s essential to consider all treatment options, including medication when necessary. At Willapa Behavioral Health & Wellness, our team of experts can help develop, prescribe, and maintain a medication plan that meets your individual needs.

Understanding Mental Illnesses and Medication

When it comes to managing a mental health disorder, it’s important to find the underlying cause. For some, it may be a genetic predisposition. For others, it may be a traumatic event or past experience. Some clients may have an underlying condition or chemical imbalance within the body that affects the brain and how it functions. In many situations, it is a combination of many factors.

Often, therapy and lifestyle changes alone can work wonders. However, there are many conditions that may also require medication for patients to live fuller and happier lives. These may include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Addiction
  • Eating Disorders
  • Schizophrenia
  • PTSD
  • Bipolar Disorder

The experienced providers at our Long Beach office can help you create a complete treatment plan that takes all aspects into consideration. As a result, you can find hope and success, even with a serious mental health diagnosis.

The Evaluation Process at Willapa Behavioral Health & Wellness

Our team provides compassionate care that centers around getting to know you on a deeper level. During your initial appointment, you can expect your provider to ask questions about your medical history, as well as your mental health. This in-depth discussion often takes around two hours, so you can build trust with your caregiver while they make an accurate assessment of your past and current needs.

When taking this and other background information into consideration, your Long Beach provider can make the best recommendations for your treatment plan, including which medications might work well for you. We take care of all the details, ensuring your prescription goes directly to the pharmacy of your choice so you can get your medications quickly and easily. We also consistently assess how well your medications are working so you can enjoy the most benefits while avoiding unwanted side effects.

At Willapa Behavioral Health & Wellness, we provide so much more than just a prescription. Here, you’ll find the very latest in innovative mental health care procedures and treatments, including counseling, group therapy, and even ketamine treatments. Most importantly, you’ll encounter empathetic team members who are passionate about helping you find solutions that work for you.
