The role of Psychiatry at VTCIT is to support the client through the use of medication when it facilitates the larger goal of healing within. Many individuals come to us in order to wean off of medication and we support that decision. We also understand that medication can have an effective and powerful role in helping individuals get through difficult situations or balance brain chemistry to live a more peaceful life. Our Psychiatrist or Nurse Practitioner will spend one to two hours taking a full psychiatric and mental health history in order to determine your candidacy for medication or to support an already existing prescribed protocol.
