The Mayo Psychiatry & Counseling Program is located at 69 High St. in Dover-Foxcroft, next door to the Penquis Higher Education Center.
Psychiatrist and Medical Director, Corabell Arps, MD, provides services in child and adolescent psychiatry.
Psychiatrist Marjorie Snyder, M.D. offers medication management services for psychiatric patients over the age of 18.
Counseling Program staff includes 10 Counselors and associated support staff. Other Counseling Program services include mental health evaluation and assessment; outpatient individual, family and group mental health counseling; substance abuse evaluation and assessment; outpatient individual, family and group substance abuse counseling; and DEEP.
Mayo Regional Hospital started a substance abuse treatment program in the 1980s to help patients who were abusing alcohol and drugs. In 2005 Mayo renamed this service the Psychiatry & Counseling Program, and the name change emphasizes a new focus as a dual-diagnosis service. Many of the people who come to Mayo with substance abuse issues also have mental health issues, most frequently depression, anxiety and family issues. These issues are often so intertwined that it makes little sense to treat them separately.
Research suggests more and more that substance abuse and mental health issues need to be treated at the same time, rather than in sequence. Whereas counselors used to treat substance abuse first, then the co-occurring mental health issues, in recent years the emphasis has moved toward treating all these issues together.
