Outpatient medication management services are provided by our team of prescribers, consisting of psychiatrists and psychiatric nurse practitioners. Along with thorough and integrative approaches to psychiatric medication management, our prescribers work together to achieve a therapeutic balance for each client’s needs. While some patients benefit from psychiatric medication alone, many studies have concluded that a combination of therapeutic support and medication management is most beneficial to individuals seeking behavioral health services.
A key part of this process is finding the right clinician, who can support you at every step.

GeneSight testing at Dana Behavioral Health
GeneSight testing helps our clinicians understand your individual needs.
The GeneSight Psychotropic test is a pharmacogenomic tool that analyzes clinically important genetic variations in your DNA. It’s designed to inform your doctor about any genes you have that may impact the way you respond to certain medications, which will help optimize your treatment.
It’s a very simple process. First, your doctor collects a DNA sample by painlessly swabbing the inside of your check. The sample is then sent to the GeneSight lab for analysis, and your doctor will have the results in about two days. They can then review your treatment plan to make improvements.
Different medications affect us in different ways. GeneSight testing can provide some helpful insights into well-known drugs, including Xanax, Elavil, Abilify, Saphris, Rexulti, Wellbutrin, Sinequan, Cymbalta, Lexapro, Lunesta, Prozac, Prolixin, Invega, Paxil, Trilafon, Inderal, Seroquel, and more.
