CBT & Medication

CBT is a non-medication based approach to treatment, and CBT therapists at the Oakville Centre for Cognitive Therapy do not prescribe drugs. However, CBT and drug therapy are not incompatible treatment approaches. In fact, clinical research suggests that for a number of disorders, combining CBT and medication can produce success rates that are better than either approach on its own. Consequently, there may be cases in which CBT therapists will seek patients' permission to liaise with their physicians around medication issues so as to ensure the very best standard of care.
