Yes.

Are you being sarcastic? lol

I don't think that therapy changes neurology
in the same way that drugs do; for one thing
it is a transient change in mood while you are
benefitting from the conversation; for another it
requires the memory of the conversation to bring
back the ideas that made you feel secure about
your condition-- a question of will. That's not
how drugs work; whether you will the mood or cognitive state to change, it changes. Basically, i think that therapy is palliative. That does not mean i disagree with its practice. Meds are stronger for an unalterable psychotic state.
If there weren't a neurological problem in psychotic states, then there would be no need for a solution.
