KEY POINTS

The FDA is now approving Prescription Digital Therapeutics (PDTs) to treat conditions like ADHD and substance use disorders. On ‘Psychology Behind The Headlines’ host Patricia Wu, Jessica Reyes, and guest Dr. Cortina Peters discuss more on this advancement.

Accessibility is EVERYTHING

PDTs could make mental healthcare affordable for people who lack insurance or who find traditional therapy too expensive. This is a major step towards more equitable care.

How Does It Work?

PDTs use interactive software, sometimes alongside medication, to deliver therapy through a computer, smartphone, or tablet. This might include games, exercises, and patient tracking to help with symptom management.

Potential for Hope (and Caution)

Dr. Peters points out that, while exciting, it’s important to ensure these programs aren’t misused to access medications without proper oversight.
