DORAL PSYCHIATRIC SERVICES
At Elevate Psychiatry, we work hard to de-stigmatize the idea that seeking care for your mental health is somehow shameful, weak, or wrong. Instead, we aim to partner with each of our patients to describe symptoms with the correct diagnosis, prescribe medications and other treatments that help these individuals reach an optimum state of functioning, and connect patients to therapists and other supports where they can learn everyday skills to cope with their mental health symptoms.
Our Doral location in the Miami Beach, FL area, strives to provide exceptional psychiatric services, online psychiatry, and online therapy at affordable prices. Read through descriptions of our most requested services below and get in touch with us if you have further questions about a treatment method, diagnosis, or insurance.
One of the exciting advantages of the work-from-home boom during the past two years is the ability to practice many forms of medicine from a distance. Many people in Florida don’t have access to high-quality psychiatric care. Those who do may not seek it out due to the stigma of treating a mental health condition or juggling working full-time and caring for their families. Telepsychiatry allows highly qualified psychiatrists to connect with those who most need their help. While the practice of telemedicine is still in its infancy, mental health practitioners are seeing real-world effects of being able to connect with their patients in this way. The practice of telepsychiatry changes mental health care in the following ways:
- It allows patients to more easily connect with their doctors and also to reach them if there is an unprecedented issue
- It means that mental health professionals can access patient groups that may not be able to come to an office for treatment
- It helps to destigmatize mental health treatment
Psychotherapy is often known as talk therapy, but it’s more than just sitting (or lying) on a couch and spilling your darkest secrets to a silent, indifferent doctor, as you may have seen dramatized in the media. It’s quite the opposite! You have the opportunity to engage with caring, qualified psychiatric professionals and counselors that will help you to uncover the root of your symptoms in a conversational manner.
After your initial evaluation, you will work closely with your practitioner to develop coping skills and deal with chronic symptoms as they occur in the real world. Your practitioner may suggest that you try elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, emotion-focused psychology, or motivational psychology as they work with you to find the best treatment.
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
Medication-assisted treatment is one of the most popular forms of modern treatment for those who struggle with addiction to drugs or alcohol. In most cases, MAT patients are detoxing from an opioid such as heroin or oxycodone. It doesn’t matter to your body if you are taking a prescription drug or an illegal one: Your body and brain become addicted and physically dependent on the drug of choice in the same way.
It can be dangerous to stop these drugs cold-turkey, though, and this is where MAT comes in. You will be given a low dose of a safe, opioid-based medication like Suboxone to help your body wean off your addictive drug of choice and decrease cravings. Studies have shown that these medications are safe and effective — and they reduce the chances of relapse.
When you work with us, you will be continuously monitored by psychiatric professionals on your mental health care journey regardless of whether you choose to hold most of your appointments through telemedicine or in-person. We offer a wide variety of services, including medication management, transcranial magnetic stimulation, and ketamine infusions. Get in touch to learn more.
WHAT WE TREAT
Symptoms such as irritability, depression, and anxiety can indicate a multitude of conditions, and it’s impossible to give a diagnosis without delving deeply into a patient’s thought processes. If you struggle with your mental health and a concurrent substance abuse disorder, scheduling an evaluation is one of the most important steps in receiving the right diagnosis and getting well. We treat the following conditions at Elevate Psychiatry:
- Psychotic disorders that include symptoms of hallucinations and delusions
- Substance abuse disorders
PRICING AND FEES
Consider our pricing and fees when scheduling your first visit, standard visits, and shorter, express visits that are ideal for patients who are currently stable. Contact us to learn more about using insurance such as AARP, Aetna, Blue Cross, and more.
