Psychotherapy is the best treatment for bipolar disorder client with alcohol and illicit drugs problems
Your Excellency, Hon.MP,
We are grateful to the services provided by your ministry to our mental health clients suffering from the problem of alcohol and drugs addiction. Through the services of your ministry, our clients can now access different pharmacological therapies such as psychiatric medication and opiate treatment, including buprenorphine, methadone and other illicit drugs. Nonetheless, in order to get better results for our clients suffering from psychological disorders related to alcohol and drugs addiction issues these medications should be accompanied by psychotherapy services.
