Upon admitting to treatment at Simple Recovery, we clinically assess the need for psychiatric services. When appropriate, a psychiatric assessment is completed at the beginning treatment to assess for co-occurring disorders, and general mental health. Through your treatment stay, you will be continually assessed for continued psychiatric services.

Any past and current medications that may need to be components of a treatment plan will be discussed and addressed on an individual basis to ensure the safety and welfare of each client within our care.
