What can I do?

Although most forms of dementia cannot be cured completely, the progression of most forms of dementia can be slowed and cognitive functioning preserved with the use of medication management, stem cells, or a combination of these two treatments. Counseling (talk therapy) can also be useful in for patients and family members learning to manage the symptoms of the disease. At A Better Outlook Psychiatry & Addiction, we specialize in treatments focused on medications and stem cells, but also provide counseling therapy when appropriate. We may refer one of our community partners to you if you require or desire more intensive talk therapy. We can also review the evidence surrounding alternative and complementary treatment options such as herbal supplements.

Your first step is to contact our office for a new patient evaluation. Our providers will not attempt to sell you on or force you to any specific treatment. Think of your first appointment as an education about your diagnosis as well as the most up-to-date and evidence-based treatment options.
