Chestnut Health Systems' outpatient treatment team includes consulting psychiatrists who provide expert evaluation and medical management of mental health and substance abuse issues.
- Within Chestnut, psychiatric consultation occurs when a person or family is engaged in a treatment program. The psychiatrist is a member of the treatment team. Most of the counseling, therapy and support provided to the persons we serve is provided by trained therapists, social workers, nurses, and counselors.
- Persons and families in treatment will benefit from conferring with both their therapist and a staff psychiatrist to determine the most appropriate treatment methods for them.
- Medication can sometimes be useful in relieving symptoms of panic, confusion, obsessions, tics, anger, depression, sadness, and hyperactivity. Medication is prescribed as part of a treatment plan, which typically includes therapy, education, and community support.
Psychiatric services are available at our Belleville and Granite City locations.
