Medical/Somatic Services evaluate and monitor the needs of clients exhibiting symptoms with a DSM-IV diagnosis. Psychiatric services are provided to children/adolescents by board-certified physicians specializing in psychiatry. The outpatient nurse obtains and reviews a comprehensive medical/health assessment in order to evaluate additional medical needs. Following an initial diagnostic assessment the psychiatrist evaluates an individual's need for psychotropic medications to reduce symptoms associated with childhood depression, hyperactivity, oppositional-defiant behavior, anxiety, and/or emotional/behavioral conditions impairing daily functioning. The psychiatrist also evaluates individuals requiring a more intensive level of treatment such as inpatient hospitalization. The psychiatrist provides in-house consultations to professional staff as needed. Referrals are made to other physicians/medical services when other physical conditions requiring treatment are noted. An outpatient Registered Nurse ensures clients are educated regarding the appropriate use of medication and potential side effects.
