North End Psychiatry and Associates’ Services Include:
Comfortable, Secure, Safe and Private Environment
While we do not agree with them, we recognize that there are cultural stereotypes associated with receiving mental health treatment that can inhibit a patient’s willingness to access care. Furthermore, in order for a patient to engage in mental health treatment, they must trust their mental healthcare provider. The patient will be engaging in therapy that targets the most protected, sensitive and personal areas of their lives.
As such, we strive to provide a physical environment that is calm and welcoming. With our varying range of services we offer, if the patient wishes, a “one stop shop” for the patients mental health needs. They can see a medical provider for medication management and a therapist in one location.
Additionally, we offer secure and alternative arrival methods for patients by request.
Our providers are passionate and specialize in medical management of mental health conditions while coordinating care with the patient’s primary care provider.
We believe in a combination in having medications assist in the patient’s overall mental health treatment.
We treat patients during all their stages of life.
Our psychotherapists specialize in marriage, group and individual counseling needs. We have Licensed Professional Counselors to provide therapy for various mental health treatments (ie anxiety, depression, sleep disorders, personality disorders, coping mechanisms, abuse, post-traumatic stress disorder, etc).
North End Psychiatry and Associates provides the only ECT treatment in Southwest Idaho by licensed psychiatrists.
ECT is a clinically safe treatment to alleviate symptoms of various psychiatric conditions, proven to be an effective treatment modality in improving certain psychiatric conditions compared to traditional pharmacological therapies.
The basics of ECT:
Treatment provided under anesthesia.
Induces a controlled seizure designed to change brain chemistry and neurocircuitry.
Treatment consists of 2-3 treatments per week for 4-6 weeks.
Covered by most commercial insurances
NeuroStar TMS Therapy is a new treatment cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients suffering from depression who have not achieved satisfactory improvement from prior antidepressant treatment. TMS stands for "transcranial magnetic stimulation."
On-site laboratory patient service center
One of the challenges we routinely see is patients not getting their follow laboratory examinations. Most often due to convenience. Therefore, North End Psychiatry and Associates has partnered with a laboratory company to provide onsite services. We also take walk-in services for laboratory examinations.
Self-Pay Sliding Fee Scale
North End Psychiatry and Associates is committed to improving the access to mental healthcare in the Treasure Valley. We have an additional model that allows for an affordable option for patients that are either underinsured or uninsured. We offer a time of service discount as well and a sliding fee scale for self-pay patients.
Government and Commercial Payers
North End Psychiatry and Associates accepts all insurances and are in network with most commercial, employee assistance programs, Medicare and Medicaid.
We believe in collaboratively managing the mental health needs of our mutual patients. To streamline the process we have created new and efficient referral process. Additionally, if you have a patient with depression and/or anxiety, one of our Psychiatrists will do an initial evaluation and recommend treatment therapy. Please know that if the patient already has a relationship with either psychiatry or psychotherapy, we gladly work with co-managing their care (ie medication management, ECT, TMS, etc).
