The Problem and Goal of Psychiatry

by ih-mmd ih-mmd
A common mistake made in the field is believing because a drug was intended to treat particular disorder just because it solved the problem in a specific instance. To add more certainty to a psychiatric diagnosis, the psychiatrist should attempt to get collateral information which will either corroborate or negate the patient’s interpretation and the psychiatrist’s initial determination. Appropriately done, psychiatry will rule out biological and toxic causes first, and then offer medication, where necessary, to reduce symptoms temporarily such that the patient is able to learn adequate coping mechanisms and sustain the highest level of function over time. The goal is to make the medicine unnecessary after the proper coping mechanisms are adopted.

by ih-mmd ih-mmd
Real luxury in health care can allow you to live a meaningful life in which you thrive rather than merely survive. Ordering the priorities of your life in such a way that unburdens you by habituating them can significantly reduce your daily stress and provide you a sense of control and mastery. Luxury healthcare offers you just the right amount of support you need and the amount of therapeutic pressure you need to grow into achieving your full potential. Merely the access to medical house calls and your doctor’s cell phone number is not worth the thousands of dollars of many concierge medical practices.

During your use of Suboxone, it is important to avoid all other medications unless specifically advised by your healthcare provider who is managing your narcotics withdrawal.
