What about medication vs. psychotherapy?


Medications in combinations with psychotherapy have been shown to help people with emotional or behavioral problems. At FMHP your cases are individualized. We research your symptoms and if clinically indicated, we will refer you for a psychiatric evaluation. Research has shown that medication, in combination with psychotherapy, may help with certain mental health illnesses as opposed to psychotherapy itself. Different kinds of problems, however, will respond differently to various treatments; therefore, choosing the right treatment can be complicated. Your choice of treatment should be based on the best available scientific evidence, as well as your own willingness to try these treatments and to stick with them. Whatever the choice, these discussions should be reviewed with your physician, psychologist or mental health professional.
