CBT is based on the findings of Aaron, T. Beck (1921). Talking therapies such as CBT may offer someone with Alzheimer’s the opportunity to speak openly about their feelings and help them to live with their condition more successfully, as according to Tilmouth (2008) it ‘looks to improve the situation that the individual currently finds themselves in.’ A strength to this approach is that it includes personalize care for the service users with their own therapist.

In order to decrease the abuse of prescription medications we must understand where these drugs are coming from, what their effects are on the mind and body, as well as what can be done to prevent these drugs from getting into the wrong hands. The prescription drug epidemic had a good run due to the lack of information regarding their true dangers but with more readily available data and thousands of cases to help back it up, one can only hope abuse will begin to decline in the years to follow.
