What services will I receive?
Services you receive will be determined by an initial intake assessment along with your diagnosis. The goals that you establish for yourself with the help of your case manager or clinical team will also determine more specifically the areas of focus.
Medication Services – Our clinics are staffed with psychiatrists and nurses. Psychiatrists evaluate patients and prescribe medication to help reduce or eliminate symptoms of mental illness.

Many patients served by Texana qualify for assistance with the cost of medications.
