At Makin Wellness, we are licensed to diagnose and provide treatment in the State of Pennsylvania and will talk about the mental health and addiction diagnoses that are currently qualifying conditions. We anticipate this list to grow, as there are many mental health and addiction diagnoses that respond positively to medical marijuana.

Current Qualifying Conditions

Typical Treatment For Medical Marijuana Assisted Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

This is evidence & research based talk therapy that involves sessions with a licensed therapist. CBT helps you tackle negative thinking, false beliefs & helps you find ways to manage & change them.

Psychiatric Medication

If medication is an option you prefer, we may refer you to different psychiatrists depending on what your unique needs are . We are more than happy to coordinate care with your doctor as well.

Individualized Approach

Natural and supplemental treatments, such as exercise, meditation, lifestyle changes, medical marijuana and nutritional changes may be advised in addition to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

FAQ's About Medical Marijuana Diagnosis & Therapy

We can meet online securely or in one of our offices. The evaluation we go through consists of addressing what condition you’re facing. We will ask about what your symptoms are, how intense they are and  how it impacts your daily living. We are here to support you throughout this evaluation process.

Call (814)-540-8185 to set up your session. We offer extremely flexible hours and are so happy to work around your schedule .

If you are not sure about either condition, or have never been diagnosed, you can try a screening tool to help assess the likelihood of a diagnosis:

 FREE Anxiety screening 

FREE PTSD screening 

FREE Opioid Use Disorder screening

If you fit the criteria for one of the qualifying conditions and may benefit from medical cannabis, we can submit a portion of the medical record to either yourself or a certifying physician. We will give you that document same day in the office, securely send it to you electronically or in the mail; it is whatever your preference is! We also can refer you to a medical marijuana certification center or doctor. We recommend certifying doctors that can help you from anywhere in the state.

No. We are currently licensed in the state of Pennsylvania and are able to do evaluations for PA residents only but we are always here to help. We specialize in anxiety, so feel comforted that you are speaking with an expert!

We can provide ongoing anxiety treatment either virtually or in one of our offices. Insurance can be accepted for that and some plans do cover for virtual counseling. Referrals can be given if you are from outside the Pittsburgh area and prefer to see someone in an office. Our clinical recommendations are highly individualized to suit your needs. Medical cannabis is not the first line of treatment for some conditions, but should be just in conjunction with other treatment modalities when recommended by your doctor. We are also happy to coordinate care with your certifying physician and dispensary pharmacist with your written consent.

Disclaimer: Getting an assessment at Makin Wellness does not guarantee you will have or be diagnosed with Anxiety, PTSD, Anxiety or Opioid Use Disorder . We are able to provide ongoing treatment in all of our offices and via telepsych. For those struggling with Opiate Use Disorder, you may qualify if conventional therapeutic interventions are contraindicated or ineffective, or for which adjunctive therapy is indicated in combination with primary therapeutic interventions. We are not certifying physicians for medical marijuana in the State of PA. We are able to evaluate, diagnose and provide treatment for mental health and addiction conditions. If you fit criteria for PTSD, Anxiety or Opioid Use Disorder , you would still need to see a certifying physician after the evaluation in order to get your medical marijuana card. Cannabis is still considered illegal under federal law. Please refer to the Pennsylvania Department of Health or contact us if you have any additional questions. Ongoing treatment is expected to be used in conjunction with medical cannabis and medical marijuana is not the primary form of treatment for Anxiety, PTSD, Autism or Opioid Use Disorder.
