Psychopharmacological Medication Management
Our Medication Management Clinic offers psychiatric services to children and adolescents in southwestern Ohio. The Clinic serves youth who are active in other services within our agency, as well as community youth who only need ongoing psychopharmacological management in order to maintain the stability they have achieved.
Medication Management Clinic – Walk In Hours

Walk-ins are for emergencies, missed appointments, medication refills and anyone else that needs to be seen. Please note, if you miss two appointments, you will have to come to two walk-in days before you are returned to the normal schedule.
