Therapy is a proven means of assisting people struggling with substance abuse and/or mental health disorders learn how to regain control of their lives and manage their difficulties successfully.
Medication can be helpful- however, medication alone can limit the success in your recovery without the combined usage of psychotherapy.
Psychotherapy is a way to discuss the emotions and reactions to these emotions that cause us strife. A therapist is bound by law to keep your information confidential. Presenting problems in life may be difficult to share with anyone due to the information being exposed to people
you may not wish to know. If the issues are persistent and disrupting the quality of your life- it may be time to seek professional help.
