Psychiatry & Medication Management

CODAC’s experienced psychiatrists and medical professionals address any mental health and emotional concerns you may have. Psychiatric evaluations are available to diagnose and assess your health. Follow-up appointments help track your progress or suggest changes for improvement.

While working closely with a medical professional and the rest of your recovery team, you can discuss the treatment options that are best for you.

Mental Health Medication

Our medical staff will talk with you about medication options that can play a key role in managing your symptoms and improving your quality of life.

Our priority is to get you feeling better. Do not get discouraged if the medication you try doesn’t work right away. Sometimes it takes adjustments to best manage your symptoms. It is important to keep track of your symptoms and side effects so you can discuss them at your next appointment.

When used in combination with other recovery services, medication can be a very effective tool.


In addition to taking your medications as prescribed, remember to take care of yourself by:

  • Getting plenty of rest
  • Eating nutritious foods
  • Staying involved in activities that you enjoy
  • Keeping in touch with your support system

Same-Day Intake

CODAC offers same-day intakes. You don’t have to schedule an appointment; you an walk-in or join a virtual intake Monday through Friday during designated intake hours depending on your needs.

About Mental Illness

Mental illnesses are common: one in every four people suffer from some form of a mental health concern every year.

While mental illness may be difficult to detect, there are specific signs and symptoms. If you are concerned for yourself or someone you care about, CODAC is here to help. You or your loved one can contact CODAC and be seen for an intake as soon as the same day!

About Trauma

Trauma may occur after experiencing a shocking, upsetting or painful event, and each person responds differently. Some people are able to resume a normal life with little to no interruption, while others are impacted long after the event(s) occurred. Others may develop anxiety or turn to substance use as a coping method.

At CODAC we provide a trauma-informed approach to treatment that respects your needs and goals in healing, using a healthy support system, therapy and self-care as tools to move forward.
