Behavioral Health Center Services
CPRC's philosophy is to provide a comprehensive approach to behavioral and developmental concerns. Our physicians look at family dynamics and how the family functions as a whole. Our approach aims to address how to help a family navigate barriers impairing healthier relationships as well as identify behavioral concerns.
The physicians at CPRC have extensive training to assess, diagnose, and treat pediatric behavioral health concerns such as childhood depression, anxiety, ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorders, and aggression. Their training includes providing specific diagnoses, utilizing diagnostic tools, selection of appropriate medications(s), monitoring improvement, and identifying and minimizing side effects.
In addition, we have numerous outside resources for children and parents/caregivers; including referrals for play therapy, trauma-specific therapy, BHIS providers, and support groups.
Medication Management and Support
On average 1 in 5 children deal with a behavioral, mental, or developmental disorder in the United States. That translates to over 14,500 children in the Quad Cities in need of care. The CPRC pediatric physicians are trained to assess, diagnose and treat pediatric behavioral health concerns.

Talk therapy is often suggested in addition to medications because medications can only do so much. By addressing problems at the root of your disorder and learning healthy coping mechanisms, you have the best chance possible at treating your behavioral health disorder. CPRC's Physicians and Staff can make referrals to a variety of therapists.
CPRC will, as necessary, make outside referrals for occupational, physical, and speech therapy. As well as referrals to the University of Iowa Center for Disabilities and Development (CDD), Child Psychiatry, and the University of Iowa Easting Disorder Program.
In addition to medical referrals, CPRC can also connect families with multiple community resources, including educational services, housing, clothing, and food assistance.
