At Psy-Visions, we believe the client is both the center of treatment and the driving force behind it. It is this perspective that enables Dr. Mark Stracks to deliver the highest possible caliber of care for clients suffering from a wide range of conditions and disorders.
Just as you should not be embarrassed to see your primary care physician when you feel physically ill, there is no need to feel uncomfortable or afraid to seek help when you feel mentally or emotionally unwell. The goal of our initial evaluation process is to get to know you. We want you to feel comfortable and reassured that everything you talk about will be kept in the strictest confidence.
Our comprehensive care includes:
- Diagnostic Evaluations
- Addiction Evaluations
- Treatment Plan Development
- Counseling and Ongoing Treatment
- Psychopharmacology / Medication Management
- Suboxone for Opiate Dependence
- Telepsychiatry Services (optional, secure service; out-of-pocket expense/not covered by insurance)
Dr. Stracks provides diagnostic evaluations for a variety of psychiatric conditions or disorders, including behavioral and addiction. The initial evaluation is typically completed in one session. We will spend time talking with you, and more importantly, listen as you talk to us. Only then can we can determine what we need to do together to help you start feeling better so you can live the life you deserve.
While medication management may be part of your recommended treatment plan, we are not interested in simply writing prescriptions. When we do suggest the use of medication, we always try to use the fewest agents at the lowest possible doses. Plus, we often recommend other treatment modalities to supplement the use of medication. If you choose not to take medication, we will always try to work with you to find an effective alternative solution.
Treatment for Substance Abuse and Other Addictions
One area in which Dr. Stracks specializes is addiction treatment. Never before has an addiction and those who struggle with it been at the forefront as it is now. Addiction affects people of all ages, genders, ethnicities, and socio-economic status. It is the unfortunate equalizer. We understand these struggles and the sensitivity with which they must be addressed. We also understand that treatment for mental health issues goes hand-in-hand with addiction treatment.
In certain cases, detoxification from alcohol and substances can be accomplished in an office setting. There are also medications that can curb the craving for substances, which may be appropriate to use in your case.
If you are looking for a viable and effective treatment for opiate addiction without the difficulties of using alternatives like methadone, you and your doctor may want to consider prescription Suboxone® (buprenorphine) therapy.
Suboxone therapy is available for eligible patients of Psy-Visions and we are here to help you understand your options.
