Frequently Asked Questions

What if I don’t currently have a primary care provider or I find that the one I have doesn’t want to work with me in this way?

You can still receive psychiatric care with us even if you don’t have a family doctor. However, without this collaboration, we won’t be able to prescribe you any controlled medications should you need them.

If you do have a primary care provider but find that they do not support a collaborative approach, your best option may be to find one that does. You deserve a provider that cares about your overall health and wellness, wants to see that you get the help you need, and is interested in being an active part of a safe and thoughtful process that has proven to achieve the best outcomes.
