Some patients may have to take medications for considerable period of time and even lifelong but they form a smaller portion of the patients seen by psychiatrists.

Remember that many physical illnesses too need medication for lifelong like diabetes, hypertension.

All medicines prescribed by a psychiatrist are addictive?

No, not all medicines prescribed by psychiatrists are addictive. Some medications are used to treat mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder, and these medications are not necessarily addictive. In some cases, these medications are used to help manage symptoms and improve a person's mental health without becoming addictive.

The medications which cause addiction belong to a group of medications called benzodiazepine which are used by psychiatrists for treating anxiety problems, disturbed sleep, aggression etc. They must be used continuously only for up to 4 weeks and then tapered off and stopped. 

Remember doctors of other specialty also use benzodiazepines for various conditions and psychological problems you might just not be aware of it.

Always ask your doctor if the medications you are receiving can cause dependence. It's also the responsibility of a doctor to tell you about dependence potential of medications.

This is not the case, anyone can benefit from therapy. You can even choose to come in for insight only.
