Starting Psychiatry/medication

What is psychiatry?

Psychiatry is a branch of medicine that focuses specifically on the medical and psychotherapeutic treatment of mental conditions and disorders.

How does psychiatry work?

Psychiatry allows people struggling to manage mental conditions or disorders to get access to medications that will make daily functioning easier, as well as work through any mental factors that might be causing or worsening their condition. Though medications can't cure mental disorders, medication can make symptoms more manageable, making the process of psychotherapeutic treatment easier and more effective. Psychiatric care can be available through in-person psychiatry and online psychiatry, depending on where you live and your own preferences. However, psychiatric providers at Thriveworks in Red Bank, NJ specifically offer online psychiatry to their clients.

Does psychiatry deal with anxiety?

Psychiatrists are among the mental health professionals who can prescribe anxiety medication, and they are also capable of offering therapeutic treatment for anxiety as well, though not every psychiatric professional offers therapy. Medication management can be offered via in-person or online psychiatry.

What is the difference between a mental health therapist and psychiatrist?

A therapist has an education specifically rooted in therapeutic practice, approaches, techniques, and treatment. They cannot prescribe medications for clients, thought they often refer clients to psychiatrists for medication management. Psychiatrists are medically trained doctors who specialize in mental health treatment, mainly through medication management and prescription, though they can also practice therapy.

What's the difference between a psychiatrist and a psychologist?

Psychologists and psychiatrists receive differing educations, as psychologists are not medically trained the same way that psychiatrists are. Psychologists mainly specialize in providing therapy services and diagnoses for mental disorders — something that most therapists cannot provide — while psychiatrists manage medications and sometimes provide therapy services. The main difference is that psychologists (generally) cannot prescribe medications the way psychiatrists can.

Do psychiatric NPs treat mental disorders?

Psychiatric nurse practitioners (NPs) treat and diagnose disorders, prescribe and manage medications, and offer psychotherapy services, too.

How do psychiatriac providers diagnose?

Oftentimes, psychiatrists or psychiatric professionals will perform a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, which involves an in-depth discussion about your symptoms, medical history, and current medications. Once they reach a diagnosis, they may suggest starting certain medications depending on your condition and the intensity of your symptoms.

Is psychiatry/medication conducted in person or online?

At Thriveworks, we offer online psychiatry as well as in-person therapy services for optimal comfort and convenience.

How long does psychiatry last?

Psychiatric services at Thriveworks Red Bank can last for as little or as much time as the client needs to reach their treatment goals, whether that be a month or two or over the course of years. treatment length is heavily dependent on the condition(s) being treated, the course of treatment, and the client's goals for treatment.

Need more help deciding?

Mental health issues are not always black and white; they often come with a lot of gray areas that can be hard to understand. Symptoms may differ greatly from one person to the next, and the causes of mental illness are widely variable and sometimes unknown.

Despite all the differences, one thing remains constant: Our mental health greatly influences everything we do, from our thoughts, our behaviors, and even our physical health. Poor mental health can lead to difficulty performing at work, turmoil in relationships, and missing out on the things you love most in life.

If you need help understanding and managing your mental health, a board-certified psychiatrist can provide the guidance you’re looking for. Psychiatrists specialize in diagnosing and treating many types of mental health issues and can help you make sense of the emotions and thoughts that may be interfering with your life.

The psychiatrists at Thriveworks in Red Bank, NJ are ready to help you navigate your mental health. You can book your first appointment online or call our friendly scheduling team for help getting started.

Should I Consult a Psychiatrist?

A psychiatrist can help improve your mental health, regardless of what you’re going through. From mild anxiety to severe psychological problems, psychiatrists have the tools to help you through the struggle.

Even mild onset of mental illness can interrupt your daily life. Many conditions, like anxiety or depression, can come with unexpected physical symptoms or manifest in slow and irritating ways. Seeking help for your mental health issues before symptoms become severe can help you maintain control and prevent serious problems from arising.

Some of the most common reasons to consider psychiatric treatment include:

  • Death of a loved one
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Excessive levels of stress
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Eating disorders
  • Substance abuse or addiction
  • Panic disorders
  • Depressive disorders
  • ADD or ADHD
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Bipolar disorder

There is no wrong time to seek the help of a psychiatrist. Whether you need help treating a mental disorder or just want to improve your mental health, a psychiatrist at Thriveworks in Red Bank, NJ can help.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Mental Health Issues

Psychiatric treatment can vary from one person to the next because it is so intensely personal. Your preferences are always taken into account at Thriveworks, so rest assured that we will work within your comfort zone.

As a trained medical doctor, a psychiatrist can help you tackle both the physiological and psychological aspects of your mental health. They’ll consider your physical health and medical history to rule out any other potential causes of your symptoms. After assessing your personality, emotions, environment, and other psychological components, your psychiatrist can offer a diagnosis. Many clients find this to be a relief because they can finally put a name to the discomfort they have been feeling and experiencing for weeks, months, or years.

Once a diagnosis has been determined, your psychiatrist will create a highly unique treatment plan for you. Your treatment may include a variety of different therapeutic approaches. Common types include psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).

Therapy alone is not always enough to manage some mental health conditions. A psychiatrist may also prescribe medications to aid in managing your condition and recommend other techniques to help manage your symptoms at home. The techniques you learn during psychiatric treatment can help to curb acute symptoms and are great tools to prevent relapse of symptoms in the long term. Some of these techniques include meditation, breathing exercises, or adding more exercise to your daily routine.

When you are ready to regain control over your mental health, Thriveworks in Red Bank, NJ can connect you with the right psychiatrist.

Zack Diamond Drake has some of the best ears around. If there is something dragging you down or simply holding you back, this individual will not only help you work through whatever it is, but help you to think through the process yourself. This, in my opinion, is the best kind of counseling there is. I would highly recommend his services.
