About the NDPSC Clinic

Stabilization model

Stabilization model

To improve access to care, the NDPSC uses a model of treatment called stabilization, which is done in coordination with a patient's primary care or community prescriber. Once treatment has been successful, if there is a need for ongoing maintenance medication treatment, at that time our providers would transition medication treatment back to our patient's primary care or community prescriber. If there is a need for stabilization in the future, our providers would be glad to see you for re-stabilization.
Visit expectations

Visit expectations

Initial assessments will be for 90-120 minutes in-person, with follow-up visits being virtually. If stabilization is longer than 11 months another in-person visit is scheduled.
Clinic set up

Clinic set up

The clinic meets Thursday between 1:00 and 6:00 pm and is located at the Tosa Health Center at:

1155 North Mayfair Road
Milwaukee, WI 53226

The NDPSC has a pool of nurses and medical assistants that assist in addressing issues that occur between appointments.

Goals for patients

  1. Promote a patient's sense of independence, freedom, and self-determination, to improve your quality of life, and to assist them in addressing any developmental tasks

  2. Determine the best way to understand patient concerns or symptoms, clarify if they have a psychiatric disorder, and offer safe and effective treatment options including levels of care and alternatives to treatment

  3. Educate patients about any current disorders so that they can make the most informed decisions for themselves regarding their care and treatment. Patients are the decision maker in their treatment; Dr. O'Grady and staff are here to help inform your decision making
