Participants and their primary therapist meet for formal treatment sessions and see each other many times per week for check-ins and follow-ups on clinical assignments.

The daily rate is not inclusive of services from Hanover Psychiatry, and are billed additionally at an hourly rate.
Services available include:
Diagnostic Evaluation – Using a biopsychosocial perspective, psychiatrists develop a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of participants well-being and functioning, resulting in an accurate diagnostic impression and treatment recommendations. The diagnostic picture and treatment recommendations inform Confluence clinicians treatment plans and participants objectives and goals while enrolled.
Medication Management – Through the evaluation process and ongoing appointments our psychiatrists can assess the need for medications to improve health and optimize functioning. The psychiatric team aims to practice in the most pharmacologically and diagnostically conservative way possible, and provide a detailed medication review and formulation using evidence-based treatment plans.
Neuropsychological Evaluation – Neuropsychological testing is a scientifically-based series of tests that accurately assess cognitive functioning, behavior, executive functions such as impulse control, organization, decision making, and ability to think flexibly. The assessment provides insight into intellectual ability (I.Q.), academic skills, memory, attention and concentration, information processing speeds, language skills; visual-spatial skills; motor and sensory skills; mood and personality.
