Psychiatry Explained

A psychiatric practitioner is a medical provider who specializes in the treatment of mental, emotional, and behavioral health services. As psychiatric provider can also treat issues involving addiction.  Psychiatric providers are trained to diagnose mental illness and substance use disorders and to prescribe the necessary medications. When someone is struggling with mental health or addition, a psychiatric provider may choose to utilize a range of medical approaches, including prescription of medication, supplements, lifestyle changes, or encouragement to engage in therapy. While therapists provide counseling or talk therapy for mental health and addiction, psychiatric providers deal with the medical side of mental health and addiction. The two disciplines support each other, often providing better results together than either would alone.

Psychiatric Comorbidities

Psychiatry has a wide range of benefits, as people who suffer from psychiatric disorders may suffer from addiction and other medical disorders. For example, individuals who abuse alcohol or opioids often develop issues including depression, anxiety, or PTSD. They also are at risk of developing other substance abuse disorders, such as a dependence on stimulants or cannabis. These comorbidities sometimes resolve themselves when the patient stops using the substance and overcomes withdrawal, but, in some cases, they can persist. In fact, for some, these psychiatric comorbidities may have been a problem before the substance abuse started. Regardless of their source, psychiatric services address behavioral health from a comprehensive standpoint, acknowledging that patients who experience psychiatric diagnoses may find it even more difficult to manage medical diagnoses or addiction. The most effective treatment for mental health disorders will address these complex issues in order to achieve sustained symptom relief and recovery.
