Medication Management

Managing Medications for Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders

Many mental health conditions and substance use disorders (e.g., opioid) benefit from medication management, which is why Beth Israel Lahey Health Behavioral Services provides medication management services alongside counseling when appropriate.

Our highly trained clinical staff helps navigate the best medication management plan for you or your loved one, including determining the best medication, dosage and timing, as well as discussing safety precautions and managing possible side effects.

What To Expect

Before receiving medication management, we will need permission to share treatment and health information with your primary care physician or other behavioral health providers.

Some medications may require lab testing to evaluate safety and effectiveness.
