Welcome to Long Island Behavioral Medicine, PC
Affiliated with Long Island TMS
Long Island Behavioral Medicine is a psychiatric medicine practice that specializes in the care and treatment of emergency responders, physicians and other healthcare professionals and their families. We provide a full range of services including evaluations, ongoing treatment including medication management, psychotherapy, and coordination of care with other professionals. While we remain current in our knowledge and understanding of psychiatric medicine research and practice guidelines, we recognize that the best care is uniquely adapted to the needs and goals of each individual patient.
We now offer DBT for Adolescents. A new group will be forming in December 2017.
Please contact our office and ask to speak with Jenny Hwang, PhD or Linda McLehose, LCSW.
Physicians and other Healthcare Professionals are vulnerable to the risks of Substance Abuse including Alcohol, Opiate and other Prescription Medications. One option that may be helpful for Physicians with Opiate Abuse and Dependence is Suboxone, a highly controlled opiate medication that can assist someone to address Opiate Dependence and associated problems.
The Program helps clients identify their goals for treatment and for a “life worth living.” Therapists will highlight client strengths and use of resources outside of treatment to identify and modify behaviors that create disregulation and increase client experiences of suffering.
