    Hello everyone. So I take an antipsychotic every night, I have over 3 months clean. Sometimes I feel that other people in recovery correlate medication with using. What are your thoughts? I am schizo-affective.

    Psych meds are not drugs, and if anyone makes that correlation, they are coming from a place of ignorance. So much "good advice" is nothing more than the opinions of people who have not taken the time to educate themselves about the facts. I take a multitude of medications for mental and physical health issues. I am not on the street buying drugs or using my prescription meds to get high. Are you using your psych meds as prescribed? If so, don't worry about what other people think. Good luck on your journey to self-discovery.
