Psychiatry, Meds & More

Many people struggle with depression, anxiety, ADHD, Bipolar Disorder, obesity and trauma. There are many excellent psychiatrists in Atlanta that we’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with and Achievement Strategies, Inc. is always happy to offer contact information for our clients who are in need of knowledgeable and compassionate psychiatric care.

There are also many people who have had little or no success with traditional psychiatric care. Sometimes it is because they are not comfortable with the idea of taking medication. Sometimes it is because their conditions have added complications that they were not been aware of and were unable to tell their psychiatrist. 

Dr. Daniel Amen, psychiatrist and founder of The Amen Clinics has been using brain imaging (SPECT scans) to view the activity levels in the brain. His research shows that  by measuring the blood flow of specific areas of the brain, he can actually see which area of the brain is overactive or under active. Specific areas of the brain regulate certain functions such as impulse control, anxiety, forethought. When Dr. Amen looks at the brain he is  able to zero in on the problems very quickly and treat it more effectively.

Dr. Amen has extensive research on SPECT and the brain. His methods successfully identify and treat clients experiencing what seems to be insolvable problems. Dr. Amen has provided treatment for head trauma and brain injuries experienced by NFL players as well as those in the Military. His studies show success with people struggling with chronic substance abuse, Bipolar Disorder, ADD, impulsivity and those with brain toxicity due to work related chemicals.

Medication is not for everyone. You have a choice.
Many people want to improve their health naturally, without medications. While the Amen Clinics can prescribe mediation, they understand that some people would rather avoid medications. For those people they recommend specific supplements. The advantage of seeing the Amen Clinic before taking any supplements is that depending on your brain type,  some supplements can help while others can worsen the condition. 

It is often difficult to get an appointment with a psychiatrist in less than a month. Because we collaborate with several psychiatrists we are often able to help clients get faster appointments with either a traditional psychiatrist in the Atlanta area, or with a functional psychiatrist practicing at the Amen Clinic in Atlanta.

Laura B. Temin sees clients in Roswell at Achievement Strategies, Inc. and also at the Amen Clinic in Atlanta. She is one of two therapists selected in the entire Atlanta area to provide services to  clients at the Amen Clinic in Atlanta. You can schedule appointments with her there on Thursdays. 

If you are a client seeking an appointment at the Amen Clinic, feel free to contact us and we will contact the Amen Clinic to oversee your care and speed up the appointment setting process. 

If you are a client who prefers to see a traditional psychiatrist and would like our help in getting an appointment we are happy to help with that as well.
