In certain circumstances, medication can be a useful addition to therapy.
Austin Child Guidance Center (ACGC) offers psychiatric evaluations and follow-up medication management for children and adolescents who engage in individual or family therapy with our clinical team.
Once a young person completes therapy at ACGC, psychiatric services (including medication refills) are no longer available.
If medication is required at the completion of individual therapy, our team will refer your child to his or her primary care physician or another psychiatrist in the community to continue their medication management.
Families referred to ACGC for psychiatric services will have an initial evaluation with our consulting Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner followed by regular appointments usually occurring once a month. Appointments with the Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner will be in addition to weekly therapy sessions.
