Medication is prescribed based on each client’s unique needs and diagnosis in addition to the individual prescriber’s clinical evaluation. If you'd like to talk with your prescriber about treatment options, please schedule a visit with your prescriber through the app or contact your Coordinator directly through your messaging portal.
Please note: as of May 20th new clients will no longer be eligible for treatment with controlled substance medications. After October 15th, all active clients will also be ineligible for treatment with controlled substance medications. If you're currently being prescribed a controlled substance medication, your prescriber will work with you to develop a titration plan or recommend non-controlled treatment options.
Do I need a prescription?
You do not need a prescription to join and use Cerebral. Cerebral offers access to licensed NPs, PMHNPs, and MDs, all of whom are able to write a first-time prescription if eligible. If you have a previous prescription for medication, you are welcome to share it with your prescriber and care team, especially if you’ve had generally positive results with a particular treatment plan in the past.
On the other hand, if you're not interested in taking medication, we also offer behavioral health options that you may benefit from, such as our Counseling Only or Therapy only plans.
Cerebral aims to be inclusive of every client's unique needs. Therefore, our plan types are designed to treat symptoms both with and without medication. If you're interested in switching to a plan that doesn't include medication management, you can easily change your subscription at any time from the My Account page or by clicking here.
