Psychiatric Services and Psychopharmacology

This service is provided by Dr. Alejo Parrellada, Board Certified Psychiatrist with years of experience treating participants with mental illness and substance use issues such as opiate dependency. If you’re struggling to overcome opiate dependency, you are aware that the experience can sometimes be overwhelming. 

Our psychiatric services include individual counseling, psychiatric evaluations, psychopharmacology as well as medication management, monitoring and adherence.  Buprenorphine (Suboxone) treatment is also available. This is a partial opiate antagonist that blocks other opioids from attaching to receptors in the brain and is only available by prescription. These services are free of charge and are provided in strict confidentiality.

For more information or to make an appointment please contact Anabel Perez, LCSW at (212) 226-6333 ext. 123 or email anabel@leshrc.org .
