Practice Areas and other important information
Clarity Mental Health specializes in a variety of mental health diagnoses. We treat patients ranging from age 6 and up, providing you and/or your family with medication management throughout your treatment.
All patients receive an initial psychiatric evaluation ranging from 45-60 minutes. We take the time to listen to your concerns, and work with you to develop a treatment plan that fits your lifestyle and your personal goals. Please see our New Patient section to access new patient forms prior to your initial appointment.
If medication is indicated for your particular diagnosis, we will work with you to determine the best fit for your lifestyle and your budget. Once your initial evaluation is complete, follow-up medication management appointments typically last between 20-30 minutes, and are scheduled monthly until you are stabilized.
*Note: In accordance with policies set forth by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), patients who are prescribed controlled substances are required to receive periodic urine drug screens to ensure medication compliance. Medication non-compliance or refusal to provide a urine sample may result in immediate discharge from the clinic. Review our controlled substance policy here.
At this time, limited psychotherapy options are available for special circumstances. We hope to add an in house therapist(s) in the future, but in the meantime we are working closely with therapists in our community to ensure you find the perfect fit for all of your psychotherapy needs.
If you are suffering from substance or alcohol abuse, we can help! Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) is available for the treatment of opioid use disorder, and also for alcohol abuse/dependency. Available options include naltrexone (Revia), Vivitrol, acamprosate (Campral), and disulfiram (Antabuse).
* Note: If you are seeking Suboxone treatment, please notify the front desk when calling to schedule your appointment to ensure you are scheduled with the correct prescriber. We do not accept insurance for Suboxone treatment. Suboxone therapy is provided at our location by Dr. Christopher Standley. A list of additional Suboxone prescribers in the area may also be available upon request.
Upon completion of a thorough psychiatric evaluation, if the use of benzodiazepines is indicated for the treatment of your diagnosis, we ask that you review and sign our Benzodiazepine Treatment Agreement. All patients with an active benzodiazepine prescription are expected to maintain regular appointment attendance, and may be subject to urine drug screens.
We understand your disability can be life changing, and respect the need for you to have proper documentation to support your disability claims.
