A Psychiatric Evaluation is needed to diagnose any emotional, behavioral, or developmental disorder. An evaluation of a child, adolescent, or adult is made based on behavior present and in relation to physical, genetic, environmental, social, cognitive, emotional, and educational components that may be affected as a result of the behaviors presented. When a treatable problem is identified, recommendations are provided, and a specific treatment plan is developed.
Medication Management includes medication evaluation and ongoing assessment, monitoring for proper medication administration, documentation of behavioral changes resulting from medication, proper coordination of medical treatment, and rehabilitation services. Medication Management is provided by our Psychiatrist and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners (APRN), specializing in children, adolescents, and adult’s mental health treatment. If any patient requires Lab work or medication by injections, Legacy Behavioral Health Center, Inc. can provide these services in our West Palm Beach and Belle Glade office.
