The licensed clinicians at Huntington Behavioral Health
in Huntington, West Virginia
, are here to assist you in developing and implementing a plan to deal with your mental/behavioral health issues. The office policy is for the patient to be seen by a therapist for the initial assessment and then be referred to the physician or nurse practitioner if medication is indicated. We beleive that most patients benefit from a combination of therapy and medication management.
Therapy sessions are generally scheduled weekly at the beginning. As the patient develops coping skills, returns to work or school or is improving, the period between sessions is extended. Research has shown that patients improve and return to their daily life more rapidly, as a general rule, with a combination of therapy and medication management.
