PPL offers advanced psychiatric care as needed. When psychiatric intervention is called for, PPL psychiatric professionals evaluate the individual, make the appropriate diagnosis and treat the individual – without the use of medications whenever possible. Often this involves working jointly with behavioral and psychological counselors and others to bring about positive outcomes.
While PPL psychiatric professionals may write prescriptions for medication when necessary, the goal is always to bring about positive psychological change using as little medication as possible or none at all, and to wean the individual from medications whenever it is appropriate.
We integrate treatment across disciplines; our therapists collaborate and cooperate with other therapists from various disciplines, as well as facility staff.- Dr. Jeffrey L. Hicks
