Medication Management Q & A

What is medication management?

Medication management is a type of treatment that helps you manage your use of medications for the treatment of drug or alcohol addiction and mental health issues. The team at Behavioral Health Clinic offers medication management services as a part of their outpatient treatment program. The purpose of the service is to carefully monitor your dosage and use of certain medications to reduce your risk for underuse, overdose, and, in some cases, addiction.

What happens during a medication management evaluation?

During the initial evaluation for medication management services, your Behavioral Health Clinic provider takes time to review all medications you currently take and your overall health history. They also assess any new medications you are taking to treat mental health issues or drug or alcohol addiction as part of your recovery program. Following your initial assessment, they create a plan to monitor your medication use at the proper dosage. Your provider may also make recommendations for medication changes as needed as part of your therapy. If you’re taking medications for addiction recovery, such as Suboxone®, your provider can also create a treatment plan to safely taper you off the medication when you’re ready.

When should I consider medication management services?

The team at Behavioral Health Clinic offers medication management services as part of their outpatient treatment program. This program is available if you need acute care but aren’t at imminent risk of harming yourself or others. You may also benefit from medication management services if you take multiple medications to manage chronic pain conditions. The team can help you control your medications to prevent misuse, addiction, and overdose.

In addition to medication management services, the staff provides:

  • Toxicology screenings
  • Psychiatric evaluations
  • Individual and group therapy
  • Customized treatment services
  • Ongoing psychiatric disorder care
These services are beneficial for those dealing with all forms of substance abuse and chemical dependency on substances such as alcohol, heroin, cocaine, and prescription drugs. Medication management and other outpatient treatment services focus on your unique needs at each stage of your treatment and recovery. The team specializes in addressing the issues that risk your sobriety, including your health and lifestyle, during in-office visits or through the online teletherapy platform. The Behavioral Health Clinic team also collaborates with a large network of residential facilities throughout Baltimore and the United States. We can make referrals for a higher level of care when necessary.
