Our neuropsychological evaluation consists of tests administered over four hours that are then used to measure an individual’s intellectual, academic, and personality strengths and weaknesses. In addition, this testing service assesses the effects of underlying brain abnormalities that might affect an individual’s everyday life, such as attentional issues, executive function, dyslexia, low self-esteem, or lack of motivation. Each test is scored, analyzed, and compiled into a final report to help determine a differential diagnosis and further treatment plans. Additionally, an interview with parents is consulted with younger patients to evaluate steps moving forward.
Telemedicine uses video and audio technologies to provide virtual appointments between healthcare providers and their clients, allowing patients to meet with our psychiatrist or psychotherapist from their homes or office.

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) or Medication Assisted Recovery (MAR) is a physician-supervised use of medication to treat opioid use, dependency & abuse. Studies have proven that medication-assisted opioid treatment is the most effective method, significantly outperforming traditional forms of treatment that rely on counseling alone. Additionally, while in most opioid use treatments, providers only prescribe medication, Copley Healthcare & Partners utilizes physician-dispensed medication as part of a comprehensive, evidence-based behavioral health treatment recovery program. Therefore, our method is a more effective & responsible approach to using MAT to treat opioid and heroin dependency.
A persistence of emotional distress and difficulties in everyday life can be uncomfortable to tackle. However, our goal is to create and provide an atmosphere of warmth, compassion, and consideration. With the final purpose of helping mitigate and guide individuals through issues such as depression, anxiety, addiction, insomnia, intimacy problems, loss of self-esteem or concentration, feeling excessive anger or guilt, or difficulty finding meaning in life.
Copley Healthcare & Partners believes in something other than a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, our highly skilled professionals take a holistic & comprehensive approach by looking at the full spectrum of a person rather than just treating symptoms.
Each patient under our care will begin their treatment with a psychiatric assessment that helps develop a comprehensive plan tailored to their needs. This evaluation helps determine whether medication, therapy or a combination of both would be most effective for the patient’s treatment plan.
