PCSD has practiced in San Diego County since 1972, and has enjoyed a reputation for its state of the art treatment and quality of care. The members of PCSD are active in inpatient and outpatient care, medical and clinical administration, research, teaching, lecturing, and clinical writing. Our physicians are trained in evaluation, rapid intervention, short term treatment, and sophisticated medication management. Likewise, our psychologists and therapists are trained in individual, couples, and family therapy, as well as group, short term crisis intervention, and long term psychotherapy, when appropriate. Our nurse practitioners are equally trained in crisis intervention and medication management.
