Medication Management for Children and Teens

Click here for adults

Medication may be an integral part of treatment for children and teens struggling with such problems as ADHD, depression, bipolar disorder, and anxiety. Medications are not used to control behavior; rather, they improve the symptoms so the person can function more effectively. The child and family then can utilize techniques learned through counseling to better manage behavior and to cope more effectively with life.

CCCG is proud to offer this multimodal approach, which consists of child and parent education about diagnosis and treatment, behavior management, medication, and school supports. Our person-centered treatment is tailored to the unique needs of each child. Our counselors and psychiatric nurse practitioners work closely together to ensure your child and family receive the best care possible.

Tina Ezeolisah, DNP, PMHNP-BC, is our nurse practitioner who looks forward to meeting with you and your child for a full psychiatric evaluation. She then will prescribe medications if needed and will provide follow-up care.
