Medication Refill FAQs
If you are prescribed a stimulant, it will be sent to your preferred pharmacy within one (1) business day. Due to the national shortage, if we need to resubmit your prescription to a different pharmacy, this can take up to 3 business days to complete. We are not able to send stimulant refills after office hours during the week or on the weekend.
It is important to keep your scheduled appointment to ensure that you receive timely refills. Repeated no shows or cancellations will result in a denial of refills.
If you have any questions regarding medications, please discuss these during your appointment. If for any reason you feel your medication needs to be adjusted or changed, please contact us immediately.

The answers may surprise you – there’s not a whole lot of difference between any of them! All licenses can practice therapy independently and are all licenses awarded by the state after an individual meets strict requirements. The main difference can be found in the educational approach received during their degree programs.
- Social workers are trained at the individual, family, group, and community levels.
- Counselors are trained with an emphasis on individuals.
- Marriage and family therapists are trained, unsurprisingly, with an emphasis on marriage and family!
Don’t overthink this, though! All the therapists are trained out of the same books, with the same theories, applying the same principles to the therapy relationship. The credentials behind their name should reassure you that they’re qualified and not cause confusion when selecting the best therapist!
We offer several services to our clinicians, such as:
- Competitive Pay
