While therapy and other counseling services prioritize emotional, social and intellectual health, we believe care should be multifaceted. When it comes to your child’s mental health care plan, we consider how medicine could be beneficial in our holistic approach.
Every child is unique, and pediatric and adolescent mood disorder treatment plans should reflect that. The behavioral health specialists at Children’s Integrated Center for Success in Lehigh Valley, PA provide specialized medical solutions alongside our supportive and therapeutic environment for your child’s complete care.
We use our medical solutions in conjunction with talk therapy and counseling. This allows us to serve your child’s biological needs while caring for their emotional, mental and social health.Contact Us
Solutions Available at CICS
CICS’s integrated precision care model provides a comprehensive approach to serving your child. Focusing on a child’s physical, mental, emotional and social health produces drastically better outcomes than traditional paths to behavioral wellness.
We create care plans for personal experiences, not labels. With our focus on holistic health, we find solutions for each unique trait rather than relying on a treatment template for a diagnosis. This approach enables us to offer the right solution from the very beginning.
Our medical solutions give us valuable insight into your child’s biology and genetic makeup and allow us to get their treatment right the first time. Along with conventional behavioral health solutions, we may recommend the following.
Weight and Nutrition Management
Healthy eating in childhood and adolescence is important for proper growth and development. Nutrition is proven to have a critical effect on a child’s mental health and can directly impact body chemistry. Food can also be challenging for children with sensory sensitivity.
Our medical nutrition therapy solutions focus on helping kids and families gain a deeper understanding of a child’s relationship with food. The CICS team will guide you and your child through a nutrition plan to support their mental and physiological care.Learn More
Pharmacogenomics is a medical discipline focused on studying how genes impact an individual’s response to medications. CICS offers pharmacogenomic services to our Lehigh Valley patients to help us better understand how a child or adolescent will react to certain drug therapies.
Every child’s genetic makeup is distinct — so not every medication will have the desired effect. Through pharmacogenomics and testing, we can pinpoint which drug therapy will be most effective for your child.
We will build a foundation of trust during this process to ensure you and your child feel comfortable with our recommended solutions. Our professionals are here to guide you through the process step-by-step.Learn More
Pediatric precision medicine takes a different approach to drug therapy. Rather than prescribing medications based on a diagnosis, CICS takes the time to understand how a certain medication will address the symptoms your child may be experiencing. We do not believe in a one‐drug‐fits‐all model. That’s why we fully personalize medication plans and curate them to each child’s needs.
Medication can help a variety of pediatric and adolescent symptoms, such as:
- Mood and behavior disorders.
- Borderline personality disorder (BPD).
- Bipolar disorder.
- Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
- Asperger syndrome.
- Tourette syndrome.
The goal of our precision medicine services is to provide treatment that will better serve the families of the Lehigh Valley and beyond. A vital part of this process is ensuring you and your child feel comfortable and secure with our precision medicine solutions. Our team is always available to answer your questions and provide reasoning for their next steps.
