It is our mission to ease the devastating impact of mental disorders and addiction with a primary focus on education, prevention and early intervention. We strive to bridge the gaps between the needs of patients and families and the professional services available through the recruitment, training, and retention of highly respected physicians and clinicians. Our affiliation with the University of Florida’s world-renowned resources allows us to serve our patients and their families with the most state-of-the-art treatments.
We offer comprehensive outpatient care by board-certified psychiatrists, including psychotherapy, psychopharmacology and psychiatric testing. Our services provide integrated programs combining state-of-the-art care for patients, frontier extending research and enhanced treatment strategies. We provide evaluations for patients seeking consultation about a diagnosis or treatment plan for mood disorders, anxiety disorders, Schizophrenia and neuropsychiatry.
We offer comprehensive treatment for adults and adolescents dealing with alcohol and drug addiction. Our board-certified addiction medicine and psychiatry physicians combine proven recovery techniques and lab-demonstrated addiction treatments with the knowledge and capabilities that come from experts at a leading academic medical center.
Our experts specialize in pain that is not getting better despite previous treatment. We treat pain that is complicated by other medical, neurological or psychiatric diseases. Our interdisciplinary team, led by physicians with multiple board certifications in psychiatry, addiction medicine, anesthesiology and pain management, develops individualized treatment plans for each patient. Our physicians address pain medicine addiction and/or fear of addiction with the goal of restoring health, function and quality of life.
Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
We offer a collaborative team of board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrists and child psychologists to meet the evaluation and treatment needs of children and their families. Services may include parent education and support, medication management, multiple treatment plans of psychotherapy, school advocacy and psychological testing. Our physicians also are available for second opinions and consultations.
Our experts offer Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) treatment on site. TMS is a proven non-drug treatment for depression. TMS is prescribed and administered by a psychiatrist.
We work with local healthcare providers to identify areas of need and fill the gaps in access to quality mental healthcare. Community outreach efforts include educating the community on the need for early intervention.
Counseling services are available to people of all ages. Counseling can help people understand the behaviors, emotions and ideas that contribute to their illness. Counseling can identify life stressors and/or events that contribute to a patient’s mental state and help the patient understand which aspects of those problems can be solved or improved.
We offer testing services specializing in learning disorders, ADHD/ADD and giftedness. Evaluation involves testing, history taking and observation by a trained specialist. We have child psychologists and a child psychiatrist who will work with the child and family members to formulate a treatment plan to help the child succeed.
