Combining pharmacotherapy with psychotherapy is referred to as Psychopharmacotherapy.
The costs of this combination are relatively less when compared to seeking medical help and psychotherapy separately.
The benefits are many and they include:
-The patient gets to be handled by psychiatrists who are qualified medical Doctors.
-The patient can ask questions relating to side effects and the doctors can adjust doses or change the drug regimen adequately.
-The doctor/psychiatrist is able t assess the progress made by the patient based on psychiatric and medical evaluation.
-The patient has little room for non-compliance to therapy.
-It is convenient for the patient who gets his/her substance use disorders addressed by one person hence the aspect of privacy is maintained.
