Will I need to take medications?
Many mental health issues can be successfully treated without the use of medications. However consulting a counselor for psychotherapy does not necessarily mean you will need to take medications. You need to keep your counselor informed of the medications you’re already taking. When there’s agreement between you and your counselor that medication should be taken, the counselor will discuss best referral options with you. For any medication prescriptions a psychiatrist will have to be consulted.
