Treatment as a partnership
Discussing one's treatment options and voicing concerns with doctors and/or therapists is essential for effective healing. Asking questions and getting answers is part of informed and appropriate treatment. If you are dissatisfied with your care, change treatment providers or get a second opinion.

In addition to treatment, participation in a support group can also be very helpful during the recovery process. Support group members share their experiences with the problem, learn coping skills and exchange information on treatment experiences. Many people also find strength and support through their religious and spiritual affiliations.
