Can you prescribe medication?

Feb 21, 2023 | Medication, Therapy Expectations

Patient: Can you prescribe medication?

Therapist: Medication is a super important part of treatment, but there are different types when it comes to healthcare providers. Psychiatric nurse practitioners or psychiatrists can prescribe medication, and therapists usually do talk therapy or mental health therapy. For many patients, the combination of medication and therapy is an ideal way to move forward. We really want to find a good medication prescriber, and then we can help you find somebody who’s a competent therapist. This kind of combined approach usually has the best results.
