Psychiatric Services

Some mental health issues are best treated with a combination of personal counseling and psychiatric medication.

We provide confidential, short-term psychiatric services for a SMALL FEE to clients already receiving personal counseling at our center. Clients receiving these services must maintain monthly psychotherapy appointments at a minimum.

Please note that as a policy we do NOT prescribe the following types of medication:

  • Benzodiazepines (Valium, Xanax, Klonopin, Etc...)
  • Opiod Pain Killers (Vicodin, OxyContin, Etc...)

Psychiatric Fees

  • $10 (1st session)
  • $5 (subsequent sessions)

If you "late cancel" or "no show", you must pay the full session cost before re-scheduling. 

For students interested in psychiatric services ONLY we recommend ETSU Student Health Service.
