In Victoria Texas we have ZERO adolescent help when it comes to medications for bipolar disorder, ADHD, ADD, reactive attachment disorder, explosive disorder, hallucinations,etc. Dr. Pliszka is worth the drive for that kind of help. He is NOT a counselor, he IS an excellent manager of psychotropic medication, and will try whatever he can to help.
