Psychiatric care and the monitoring of the effectiveness of medication are important components to effective treatment.  La Europa Academy has three psychiatrists that work with our program. 

The psychiatrists meet with each new student as soon as possible after enrollment and complete an initial evaluation.  Medications are reviewed and the student’s current medication regimen is discussed with parents. 

Changes to medications are usually not made for the first 30 days while the student is settling in.  A student's Psychiatrist collects information from the therapist, the residential team and the school prior to making any recommendations for medication changes so he or she can get a full profile of how the student is doing. 

La Europa Academy has a full-time nurse who is on campus a minimum of five days per week.  The nurse accompanies the psychiatrists for all meetings with student to ensure a smooth transition with any medication changes.
