Medication management with a psychiatrist or nurse practitioner is a part of treatment for most clients at the Plain Communities Outpatient Clinic and at Green Pasture residence and is arranged by staff as needed through the clinic.
Our psychiatrist and our nurse practitioner provide medication management. They meet with clients who stay at the Green Pasture residence once or twice a week to discuss symptoms, response to medications, and risks and benefits of treatment, and to agree on a treatment plan. Medication management is available to our clients who seek intensive treatment while staying at the Green Pasture residence, as well as to clients who come in from the community on an outpatient basis.
The Green Pasture residence employs a Plain Community Cultural Interpreter to help organize medication management for clients and to help with translations or explaining situations to families.
