i really don't know how many times i have to say this:

I'M NOT ADVOCATING THAT PEOPLE STOP TAKING THEIR MEDICATION.

another thing:

I'M NOT ADVOCATING THAT ONE MUST CHOOSE ONE AND ONLY ONE VARIETY OF TREATMENT.

i've just been saying that for the majority of disorders they have found that a combination of BOTH medication and psychotherapy is most effective

and that while there is a lot more research to do (on the effectiveness of psychotherapy for schizophrenia and bi-polar in particular)

it looks like a combination of both medication AND therapy is most effective

and hence the argument from 'biomedical condition hence therapy doesn't help' is wrong as a matter of empirical fact. for the reason that... therapy targets biology too...
