Behavioral Prescriptions: A New Approach to Mental Health Treatment in NYC

At Nao Medical, we believe that mental health treatment should be more than just medication. That’s why we offer behavioral prescriptions as part of our comprehensive mental health services.

What are Behavioral Prescriptions?

Behavioral prescriptions are personalized treatment plans that focus on changing behaviors and habits that contribute to mental health issues. They are designed to complement medication and therapy, providing a more holistic approach to treatment.

How Do Behavioral Prescriptions Work?

Our mental health professionals work with you to identify specific behaviors and habits that may be contributing to your mental health issues. They then create a personalized plan that includes specific goals and strategies to help you change those behaviors and habits.

For example, if you are struggling with anxiety, your behavioral prescription may include strategies for managing stress, such as deep breathing exercises or mindfulness meditation. If you are dealing with depression, your prescription may include activities that promote positive emotions, such as spending time with loved ones or engaging in hobbies you enjoy.

Why Choose Behavioral Prescriptions?

Behavioral prescriptions offer a number of benefits over traditional medication-only approaches to mental health treatment. They:

  • Provide a more holistic approach to treatment
  • Empower patients to take an active role in their own treatment
  • Can be used in conjunction with medication and therapy for even better results

What is the difference between behavioral prescriptions and therapy?

While therapy focuses on exploring and understanding the root causes of mental health issues, behavioral prescriptions are more action-oriented and focus on changing specific behaviors and habits that contribute to those issues.

Do I need to be on medication to receive a behavioral prescription?

No, behavioral prescriptions can be used on their own or in conjunction with medication and therapy.

How long does it take to see results from a behavioral prescription?

Results vary depending on the individual and the specific behaviors being targeted, but many patients report seeing positive changes within a few weeks of starting their prescription.
