In-Office Injections: A New Level of Convenience and Support for Your Mental Health Journey



At Georgia Behavioral Health, we're excited to announce a significant expansion of our services. We're now able to administer most long-acting injections (LAIs) right here in our office! This means greater convenience, closer monitoring, and a more seamless treatment experience for you.


What are Long-Acting Injections?

Long-acting injectable medications are a form of treatment where medication is delivered via an injection instead of daily pills. These injections slowly release the medication over time, typically lasting for weeks or even months. This provides a number of benefits:

  • Improved adherence: You don't have to remember to take a pill every day, reducing the risk of missed doses and ensuring consistent treatment.

  • Reduced side effects: LAIs often lead to fewer side effects compared to oral medications, as the medication levels are more stable.

  • Enhanced efficacy: Studies have shown that LAIs can be more effective in managing symptoms for some individuals, especially those who struggle with adherence to oral medication.


Who Can Benefit from LAIs?

Long-acting injectable medications have proven efficacy in managing various psychosis spectrum illnesses, such as:

  • Schizophrenia

  • Schizoaffective disorder

  • Bipolar disorder (in some cases)

If you or a loved one are struggling with one of these conditions and haven't found success with oral medications, LAIs may be a valuable option to consider.


Why Choose In-Office Injections?

By offering in-office injections, we're able to provide a more comprehensive and convenient experience for our patients:


  • Ease and accessibility: You won't need to schedule separate appointments at a pharmacy or clinic.

  • Expert administration: Our experienced medical professionals will administer the injections safely and efficiently.

  • Close monitoring: We can closely monitor your response to the medication and make any necessary adjustments.

  • Personalized support: We'll be with you every step of the way, providing education, support, and guidance throughout your treatment journey.


Take the Next Step

If you're curious about whether long-acting injections could be right for you, we encourage you to schedule a consultation. We'll discuss your individual needs, medical history, and treatment goals to determine if this option is a good fit.


At Georgia Behavioral Health, we're committed to providing you with the most effective and personalized mental health care possible. This new service is just one more way we're striving to make your journey towards recovery easier and more successful.
