What is Integrated Treatment at Gateway Psychiatric?


An integrated and holistic approach

Although some of us are considered “experts” in psychopharmacology and some as “experts” in psychotherapy, we all believe that an integrative approach to treatment works best. Instead of believing that the things we know best are the only things that help, we strive to understand and embrace alternative forms of treatment. We value the collaboration of other health and wellness professionals including nutritionists, physicians, trainers, yoga instructors, and acupuncturists. We maintain a constantly expanding list of local experts and resources.



Collaboration with the patient and with other providers

For this kind of comprehensive treatment approach to be effective, it is essential that the care is truly collaborative. That is how we approach our work with patients, and also what we strive for in our work with other providers. We devote a lot of time and energy to ensure that the entire treatment team works together to share perspectives and progress assessments.
