At times, medication can be a useful addition to therapy. Psychiatric evaluations and follow-up medication management are only available to those children who are already participating in individual or family counseling at Austin Child Guidance Center. If a child receives medication through our agency they may only receive it so long as the child and family continue in therapy. Following the therapy and if the child still requires medication we will direct the child or family to their primary care physician.
The fee for psychiatric services is $150/hour. A sliding fee scale is available based on family size and income. Selected insurance plans are also accepted.
