Psychopharmacology is an important part of our practice, which is the science of the study of the effects of drugs on mood, emotion and behavior. Our doctor follows all the ever-changing stream of drugs and current research to know how a variety of prescription medications and illicit non-medication drugs affect the body and how the body affects the properties (such as potency and duration) of the drugs so that prescription drugs can be incorporated into the treatment plan when necessary.
