Child and adolescent treatment at LW, and a clinical best practice, will always require the participation of one or more primary caregivers. Our goal is to empower parents and children to enjoy a healthy connection so that both will thrive.
It is LifeWay’s policy, and best practice belief, that clients who need medication also need to be receiving therapy, especially in the beginning. we do not believe that medication alone will usually enable clients to make necessary changes needed for the best outcome. Therefor, our psychiatrists and nurse practitioners typically will only treat clients who are in therapy with a LifeWay counselor. Occasionally exceptions will be made in situations of certain referrals from community therapists or conditions such as ADD/ADHD.
Inquiries and referrals can be made by indiiduals, concerned family members and frinds, counselors, physicians, pastors and other professionals.
