Treatment For Medication Dependence

Approximately 1 in 6 Americans take a psychiatric medication during the course of a year, with 80 percent of those being regular users.¹

We truly live in a culture of medication dependence.

A Logical Answer to Drug Dependence

With over 80 million people dependent on psychiatric medication, in addition to those self-medicating symptoms with alcohol and recreational drugs, we must ask ourselves if this is the only way.

For many, there appears to be only two choices:

  1. Deal with the symptoms without the use of drugs or,
  2. Deal with the side-effects that come with medications taken to treat the symptoms.

On the face of it, neither seems ideal. But there is a third option. Find out what is causing the symptoms. Treat it, and the need for medicating is substantially reduced or eliminated.
