help you to be less depressed and less anxious, but I cannot make you happy.
help you have fewer cravings for your addictive substances, but I cannot make you clean and sober.
help you decrease the risk of a second heart attack and stroke, but I cannot take away your atherosclerotic artery disease.
help decrease the risk of losing your foot to diabetes, but I cannot cure you of your diabetes.
help manage your chronic pain, but cannot make you pain free.
(Much of the needed help and potential for cure comes from your beliefs, behaviors, and actions)
