Talk therapy, over time, is better than just plain meds and this has been known a long time. While meds can help at the beginning to get one over the hump, in the long run it doesn't "cure" unless a person had a real organic problem. Even then it isn't a cure. In some clinics, the pdoc oversees the non-doc therapists, and it is only the pdoc who can prescribe meds, which came to mind as I read in your hubby's experience. (How well a clinic operates depends on how well it is organized.) *Jade* is on target about having DH think about modality. When one is feeling like "crap" it is hard to think about what to do next, but go back for the therapy. Ya hafta do the work. Make several appointments at once (a month's worth and for twice a week, if necessary) so the waiting isn't long. Good luck.
