A common recommendation with medication is for some degree of counseling. This provides direction and support to address the causes of a condition. Also, assessing one’s responses to the medical condition, and the treatment can be helpful to identify stressors and strengths.
It can be said that ”Pills don’t teach skills”, and this is true for any medical need. A sense of confidence comes from being conscious of the options and practicing self-care. Therapy helps you to increase your understanding of what makes a difference in the quality of your life. Medications help you “to keep your head above water”; while therapy coaches you to swim more effectively.
