Quick Links

SouthLight Healthcare at Barrett Drive is an office-based mental health and substance use disorder clinic in the North Hills area. We provide medication management for psychiatric disorders, medication-assisted treatment for addiction and on-site counseling with licensed professionals.

At our Barrett Drive office, we strive to put the needs of the individual first while making medically and clinically appropriate recommendations to achieve success. We understand the courage it takes to seek treatment, and we aim to be with our clients every step of the way.
Together, our clients and our team set goals and develop treatment plans based on each individual’s particular problems and needs. Gaining control of your life through individual therapy and/or medication management can be empowering and rewarding.

Medication Management

Medication Management is the use of psychotropic medications based off of an initial evaluation that is performed by a qualified medical provider. Our clients follow up on a routine basis to monitor and adjust these prescriptions as related to their daily lives.
Our providers carefully review your history and past/current medications while listening to your treatment goals to help improve your overall physical and mental health.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

“Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of medications with counseling and behavioral therapies to treat substance use disorders and prevent opioid overdose. A common misconception associated with MAT is that it substitutes one drug for another. Instead, these medications relieve the withdrawal symptoms and psychological cravings that cause chemical imbalances in the body. MAT programs provide a safe and controlled level of medication to overcome the use of an abused opioid.” (Source: SAMHSA)

Our providers work closely with you to achieve your recovery goals. You will be evaluated by a qualified medical provider who will determine the appropriate FDA approved medication (Suboxone, Vivitrol). You will be closely monitored through follow up appointments and urine drug screens by your provider.

Counseling Services

Counseling is a professional, collaborative partnership between the counselor and client. Our counselors will help you identify your goals and work towards potential solutions to problems which may be causing emotional stress or strain on your everyday life. They will seek to improve coping skills and communication efforts while strengthening self-esteem and promoting behavioral changes for optimal mental health balance.

Our counselors work alongside our medication management providers to insure you are achieving your treatment goals.
