Therapy Reduces Medical Costs
Several research studies have clearly pointed out that individuals who receive knowledge-based as well as effective psychotherapy, are less inclined to need frequent medical services. One study for example which monitored people with anxiety disorders showed that after receiving therapy, medical visits were reduced by as much as 90%, laboratory expenses lowered by 50%, and treatment costs as a whole were cut by an overall 35%.
Additional studies have demonstrated that untreated individuals experiencing mental health challenges visit a physician’s office twice as frequently as others who are able and willing to secure psychotherapy services.
Disproportionate amounts of anxiety and stress are often precursors to a multitude of physical problems including heart disease, painful ulcers which can occur inside or outside the body, as well as colitis which is an inflammation of the large intestine accompanied by strong abdominal pain. Frequent and palpable anxiety coupled with excessive stress can certainly compromise the immune system, exposing sufferers to health-related conditions ranging from the common cold all the way to developing cancer or other serious and life-threatening medical conditions.
Without the assistance and support of psychotherapy, psychological problems like anxiety, stress, and depression also escalate the incidence of poor behavioral choices which often can be a major factor in experiencing additional medical problems. Smoking, frequent and excessive drinking and/or drug use, unhealthy eating choices, and irresponsible behavior can all culminate into serious physical problems and necessitate medical attention. These unfortunate and often costly outcomes can be avoided by the effective and consistent use of therapy with a skilled psychologist like Dr. Gilbert Chalepas.
