It seems like the drugs are being used in lieu of carefully tailored treatment plans. There often isn't any sort of cure for these things. Medication can often help, but it's never a cure-all nor is it meant to be the one aspect of treatment.
If we can't trust mental health professionals whose facilities get government money to make diagnoses that aren't influenced by Big Phrama lobbying money, then that's obviously part of the problem, part of what makes the system broken.
