Learning my software needs

I currently have only Adobe Photoshop 18 and no Lightroom program. I have never felt I use it enough to get a creative subscription. However this year I am shooting raw and seeing the benefits of the detail. I just purchased the Topaz trio. I have ordered the new Sony A7IV and not sure if PS18 will be able to recognize the raw file format. Any suggestions of software program alternatives that do not break the bank but fill the bill. 
I am learning as I go so advice welcome, thanks.
