Unfortunately, mental health problems can be an immense obstacle to all facets of our daily lives as well. Whether it be depression, anxiety, ADHD, or other mental health conditions, they can have detrimental effects on our quality of life.

Experience a New Level of Care at Meridian Advanced Psychiatry
A New Level of Care for Mental Health
MAP (Meridian Advanced Psychiatry) uses a collaborative approach with our patients. We rely on both our clinician’s expertise in mental health and the patient’s expertise in their experience. Our clinicians will provide your diagnosis after a thorough evaluation of your history and current situation. We then determine the appropriate treatment options and help you become informed enough to select the most appropriate option. Treatment can include one or more of the following: prescription medications, counseling/therapy, diet, nutrition, supplementation, exercise, and more. We also consider for a referral to other providers or treatment modalities is always available as needed. Our priority is to help you get the right treatment, even if it’s not with us.
MAP (Meridian Advanced Psychiatry) uses updated, evidenced-based guidelines and are constantly reviewing the latest research to make sure that we are providing you with the best available psychiatric care.
A New Level of Care for Substance Use
MAP’s (meridian advanced psychiatry) outpatient Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) clinic approaches the treatment of substance use disorders with integrated, evidence-based care. Our dedicated MAT clinic is seamlessly integrated with full-service psychiatric medication management to account for the large population of patients with both a substance use disorder and other mental health diagnoses. This helps to ensure effective and long-lasting recovery with increased retention rates, improved outcomes, and fewer chances of a return to substance use. Our mission is to provide a no-judgment environment with ease of access, and a care plan that fits the patient’s needs.
Regrettably, you will often find clinics that just want to treat substance use by prescribing a single medication and quickly sending you off to another provider for the rest of your mental health. At MAP, we find this as a poor use of our resources and your time. Substance use disorders are another part of mental health and should be treated by your psychiatric provider.

Opioid Use Disorder
Opioid use disorder and addiction involves using an opioid drug compulsively and being overwhelmingly set on finding, getting, and using that drug.

Alcohol use disorder is defined by a pattern of alcohol use that involves issues controlling drinking, being overly preoccupied with alcohol, using it regardless of problems, and having to drink more to get the same effect.
Sedative Use Disorder
Regular use of sedative-hypnotic drugs can often lead to drug tolerance. That’s when the body adjusts, and then needs a high dose to reach the same effect.

Depression, anxiety and PSTD are very different, but the symptoms can often be similar. Nervousness, irritability, and problems with sleep and concentrating can be caused by either condition.
