In a lot of behavioral and mental health treatments, psychotherapy and medications are incorporated. Therapy allows the mental health professional and the client to determine the psychosocial factors that may have caused or triggered the behavior, habit, or negative coping mechanism. But medications are also important for a person’s hormones or chemical imbalances in the brain to be managed. For individuals who are suffering from substance abuse disorders, medications can also be prescribed to control the cravings that can help minimize the chances of relapses. In issues like depression, antidepressants help relieve symptoms like restlessness and sleep problems.
Above are just among the many effects of medications on certain mental and behavioral conditions. In our company, not only do we prescribe meds but we also regularly follow up our clients regarding their adherence to them.
