SHYAS psychiatric services include psychiatric evaluations, medication management, medication-assisted treatment, and therapy.
A psychiatric evaluation is a clinical interview conducted by a psychiatrist to diagnose problems with memory, thought processes, and behaviors. Some diagnoses resulting from a psych eval may include depression, schizophrenia, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and addiction.
Medication Management is the prescription, administration, and review of medications and the side effects of drug therapy. It also involves the monitoring and reconciliation of prescription medications that a patient takes to verify they are fulfilling the prescribed medication regimen and the combination of prescribed medications are safe. It is the responsibility of the practitioner to make certain that the patient is avoiding potentially unsafe drug issues and/or practices.
One of SHYAS' medical professionals will start with a review of all medications prescribed by all prescribers providing care to the patient and any over-the-counter and herbal products the patient may be taking to identify and address medication problems.
Next step is to make sure patients and caregivers understand why the medication has been prescribed and how to properly use and administer each medication.
SHYAS' medical team will then collaborate with other physicians and health care providers to develop and achieve an optimal medication therapy goal.
SHYAS' Med Management protocol helps to eliminate the likelihood of medications being used incorrectly, this includes duplicate medications and unnecessary prescription medications.
SHYAS' medical professionals will also address the need for medication(s) for any untreated or inappropriately managed conditions.
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, which is effective in the treatment of substance use disorders such as OUD (opioid use disorder). SHYAS uses this evidence-based approach to treating opioid use disorders with the approved drugs; buprenorphine and naltrexone.
Suboxone is a combination medication comprised of buprenorphine (a partial opioid agonist) and naloxone (an opioid antagonist). It is used to treat opioid use disorder (OUD).
When taken properly, Suboxone tricks your opioid receptors into believing that your drug craving is fulfilled by releasing diminished amounts of opioids. Treatment provides a way for you to gradually wean off your pre-existing addiction, while minimizing the withdrawal symptoms that comes from the process.
Naltrexone is a medication approved by the FDA to treat both opioid use disorder (OUD) and alcohol use disorder (AUD) as a medication-assisted treatment (MAT) option.
Naltrexone is not addictive and does not cause withdrawal symptoms with stop of use. Naltrexone is not an opioid. It blocks the euphoric and sedative effects of opioids such as heroin, morphine, and codeine. Naltrexone binds and blocks opioid receptors, and reduces and suppresses opioid cravings.
