Cognitive behavioral therapy
Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, is a common type of talk therapy that for some people can work as well or better than medication to treat depression. It can be effective if your depression is mild or moderate. It also can help with more severe cases if your therapist is highly skilled. In some cases, CBT can help you the most if you combine it with other treatments, like antidepressants or other drugs.
Should I go to Therapy?
The decision to begin psychotherapy can be a challenging one. Some worry that needing therapy is a sign that they are deeply flawed or “cazy,” while others fear the potential embarrassment of revealing their innermost thoughts to a stranger.
In general, the thoughts and worries that plague individuals are surprisingly common, and many who start therapy later find that their initial fears about the process were overblown. Still, since therapy requires a certain amount of commitment, the decision to start therapy shouldn’t be made lightly. It’s important to spend time securing insurance coverage, researching potential therapists, and finding the right match.
Medication-assisted treatment is the use of anti-craving medicine such as naltrexone (Vivitrol), buprenorphine (Suboxone) or methadone — along with comprehensive therapy and support — to help address issues related to opioid dependence, including withdrawal, cravings and relapse prevention. Evidenced-based treatment approaches like this are often needed to successfully overcome addiction and maintain long-term recovery..
