Prairie Ridge provides assessments and ongoing psychiatry treatment services with both onsite and telehealth providers.
The telehealth process occurs via a Telehealth system (Video/Audio System in private rooms) set up to provide quicker access to needed appointments. Patients have access to psychiatrists, Psychiatric ARNPs and internists to meet their medication needs.
In addition to pharmacotherapy services for treatment of symptoms related to mental health conditions, Prairie Ridge provides access to medication assisted treatment for addiction, including Suboxone, Vivitrol, Naltrexone and Campral. With support from an internist, we are able to provide medical support for individuals in need of assistance with outpatient, or ambulatory, detox. Patients in need of medical detox are given a referral to our local hospital.
SPRAVATO® (esketamine) is a nasal spray that has proven effective in lessening treatment resistant depression. It is designed to work in conjunction with an oral antidepressant for treatment resistant depression. Treatment with this medication requires that you be at Prairie Ridge for 2 hours each time you receive it. In the beginning, you will receive the medication twice per week for 4 weeks. Then you move to weekly treatment for another 4 weeks. After that, you move to treatment once every 2 weeks. Many patients require this medication on a routine basis going forward and generally continue to receive it every 2 – 3 weeks.
Spravato is not indicated for patients with bipolar disorder nor those with a history of substance use disorders.
