The Chestnut Health Systems team includes consulting psychiatrists who provide expert evaluation and medical management of mental health and substance abuse issues.
- Psychiatric consultation happens within the context of a treatment program.
- The psychiatrist is a member of the treatment team; most counseling, therapy, and support is provided by trained therapists, social workers, nurses, and counselors.
- Medication can be helpful in relieving symptoms including panic, confusion, obsession, tics, anger, depression, sadness, and hyperactivity. Medication may be prescribed as part of a treatment plan which typically also includes therapy, education, and community support.
Psychiatric services are available at our Belleville, Bloomington, and Granite City Illinois locations.
