Medications are an important element of treatment for many patients, especially when combined with counseling and other behavioral therapies.

Fred Brown Recovery Services supports the use of medications in assisting patients to establish and maintain a physical and emotional state that will be conducive to treatment. While many patients will not require medication, an assessment indicating the use of prescribed medications in combination with behavioral therapies can be highly effective for those that do. Through consultation with both inside and outside staff, the appropriateness of medications is evaluated on an individual basis. Fred Brown Recovery Services safeguards and assists clients with their medications to the maximum extent which may include transportation to outside medical appointments and pharmacies to drop off and pick up prescriptions.
