Reliability is an important thing in terms of diagnosing phobias as they have to be consistent and accurate. In order to examine reliability we look at two things, the first being inter-rater reliability which is when three specialists observe the person with the phobia and assess accordingly to see whether they all agree. Skyre et al (1991) investigated inter-rater reliability and looked at diagnosing social phobias. They asked 3 clinicians to assess 54 patient interviews that used the structured clinical interview. They found that there was a high inter-rater reliability which showed that the diagnosis of phobia is reliable.

Doctors consider the potential benefits and risks to each patient before prescribing medications, but even then if taken for long periods of time they can have an effect on your ability to see clearly. What makes it worse is that people who abuse drugs might not understand how these factors may affect them or that prescription drugs do more than cause a high, help them stay awake, help them relax, or relieve pain. Another problem is that many drug abusers take more than one drug at a time and this can cause serious consequences, one of which is death.
