Psychotherapy is as effective as medication in treating depression and is more effective than medication in preventing relapse (DeRubeis, Siegle, & Hollon, 2008). Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) pertains to a class of interventions whose premise is that mental disorders and psychological distress are maintained by cognitive factors. Beck (1970) and Ellis (1962), were the pioneers Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach of the core premise of holds that maladaptive cognitions contribute to the maintenance of emotional distress and behavioral problems.

In this regard the other comparison comes into mind, which is drug and alcohol addiction. It is well-known that drugs and alcohol have some positive influence on the personality. Some people claim that under the influence of these substances they became more sociable, brave and creative. Initially, they all think that they are in control of their drug and alcohol consumption until they are not anymore. The similarity between Jekyll’s case and those with substance addiction is in desire of both parties to feel liberated from irksome everyday problems or to get rid of inferiority feeling; in other words, initially, they all are simply trying to become the best version of themselves.
The text suggests that positive attitudes in treatment can cause the placebo effect. This shows a link between the mind and brain; the positive thoughts of the mind help express a change cellularly that causes the placebo effect. If the brain did not have this duality, why would biological influences effect our thoughts and feelings? Similarity, pharmaceuticals, illegal drugs, and alcohol can do damage to the brain, but also alter our behavior. It seems that you cannot effect the mind without in turn affecting the brain.

The kind of drug tolerance models that has passed from one generation to another, be it emphasises on receptor changes or on altered metabolism, it describes or explains the mechanisms that are underlying tolerance as orgasmic change which results automatically due to the exposure of drugs. Nevertheless, there has been many recent demonstrations of tolerance phenomena which postulates that there is much more to drug tolerance than just drug exposure by itself. At a more specific level, learning and increased knowledge resulting from drug administration may be more inclined to play a significant role in expression, maintenance and expression of drug tolerance (Siegel, 1983). It was noted by Siegel (1975) that any instances when a certain drug is tested or taken can be perceived as a Pavlovian conditioning trial where environmental cues are joined with the effects that is brought about by the drug. Through the process of conditioning, the learning of associating drug effects with surroundings or environments by animals may occur, predictably associated with the administration of drugs.

One motif I found interesting throughout the novel was the replacement of truth, and true human experience, with “happiness” and government created cultures. Examples that illustrate this idea from the text Soma is one of the biggest examples of this idea. Soma is a drug-like substance users take to experience hallucinations of happiness. In the novel Soma is used during times of worship, or even to replace times of sadness, grief, or any feelings other then happiness. A second example of this may be found in the manner the government creates society to be.
