Treatments & Interventions
Basic Information

No website dealing with mental and medical health issues would be complete without a section on the various means of treating disorders. In this Treatment and Intervention topic area, we deal broadly with modes of treatment, leaving more specific treatment descriptions (tailored to specific disorders) to specific disorder topic areas.

Treatment stratagies may be sorted into two gross categories: physical interventions (including medicine/drugs/herbs, surgery, and other 'hands-on' treatments such as massage), and mental interventions (including psychotherapy and hypnosis)

Information on different interventions is presented in various sub-topic centers of this parent-center. Please click on the links below to access these sub-topic centers.
