Psychiatric Services

Alternative Paths provides Youth Psychiatric Services through a Board Certified Child Psychiatrist for youth in need of psychiatric medications.

Children who are believed to benefit from child psychiatry services will complete a diagnostic psychiatric evaluation with the doctor to evaluate the physical, genetic, developmental, emotional, cognitive, educational, family, peer, and social components of the child’s life to determine a diagnosis and determine whether the child could benefit from the use of medication as a part of their mental health treatment.

Medication and child psychiatric services at Alternative Paths are provided in conjunction with an integrated approach that involves counseling and case management treating the child’s mental health needs, as determined by a clinical assessment.
