CAST has strong relationships with prominent Los Angeles-based, board-certified psychiatrists who have national reputations in the field of psychiatric medicine. We will schedule our clients as needed for a thorough psychiatric assessment with a doctor whose expertise best matches all of a client’s presenting needs. When medications are prescribed, the psychiatrist will meet regularly with the client and will also consult with the CAST team in order to integrate this piece into the overall treatment plan. Everyone works together as a team in a client’s care at CAST. And we encourage every client to be a proactive participant in her or his care. The client, who is the most accurate reporter of the affects of prescribed medications, will always be invited to be a voice in the team-wide conversation about psychiatric treatment.
