Our Behavioral Health Services

At Advent Medical Group we take great pride in offering exceptional quality and result-focused treatment to our patients. Through our compassionate and individualized patient care, we maintain our commitment of providing excellence in clinical care and customer service.

We provide exceptional behavioral health care services for children, adolescents, adults and older adults and their families who are challenged with emotional and behavioral distress. Our multifaceted approach to excellent quality care includes evaluation, the consideration of the individuals’ biological, behavioral, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual needs, then tailoring the most effective result-focused treatment plan.

We encourage individuals to seek treatment when they find themselves experiencing the signs and symptoms of mental distress such as constant sadness, irritability, sleeplessness, significant weight change and loss of interest in favorite activites. There are effective treatments and service delivery strategies as well as an array of safe and effective medications and psychosocial interventions, typically used in combination, which allow us to effectively treat most mental health issues.

Our board certified Psychiatrists, Licensed Clinical Social Workers (LCSW), Licensed Professional Counselors (LPC) and Advanced Practice Clinical Nurses Specialists integrate knowledge and techniques from behavioral and medical sciences to provide comprehensive treatment for a wide range of mental health issues.

The talented and experienced behavioral medicine specialists at Advent Medical Group treat a wide spectrum of disorders and conditions in Children, Adolescents and Adults. Children and adolescents may encounter problems that interfere with their growth and psychological development. These problems are typically multifaceted and their treatment usually requires more than a single approach.

Treatment Philosophy

Advent Medical Group emphasizes the individual, hence creating a therapeutic environment based on the individual’s needs and varying severity of mental illness. We believe that an integrated, comprehensive treatment program, in combination with the appropriate social supports, can help individuals and their families recover from addiction and/or mental health problems.

Treatment at Advent Medical Group is centered on the following principles:

  1. Respect and empathy for the patient, first and foremost
  2. Belief in the human capacity and ability to change and improve
  3. Provision of culturally competent services
  4. Recognition of the importance of family and support environment to the treatment process
  5. Belief in evidence-based treatment and the best practices in the field.

Relevant treatment varies with symptom severity of each patient. Often times mental health problems and disorders can be treated on an outpatient basis although if the patient’s signs and symptoms persist, other levels of care may be recommended. The providers at Advent Medical Group provide treatment in various treatment settings.

Office Setting

We strive to provide our patients with a welcoming professional environment; a place where you can be comfortable and relaxed. Treatment is not provided in an exam room but in a comfortable windowed room with plenty of natural sun light. Our offices are furnished and decorated to provide a home-like feeling.

Outpatient office treatment consists of an appointment with a psychiatrist or therapist in our office in St. Peters or Washington, Missouri. Upon your initial evaluation your provider will evaluate your condition and provide you with his or her recommended treatment plan. Treatment for most common psychiatric disorders often consists of medication and therapy. Our locations provide you the access to both a physician and a therapist who will work together to provide you with result focused treatment.
