VISTA, Calif. - May 7, 2023 - PRLog -- Relapse prevention and treatment adherence
The main goal in the treatment of schizophrenia is to reduce symptoms and minimize the risk of relapse or the reappearance of symptom exacerbations. Although there is no single definition of relapse, rehospitalization, symptomatic worsening, self-injury, and suicidal or homicidal ideation are all factors used in determining relapse in research and clinical settings. But a big challenge is that many people with this illness refuses medications or has family members who side with the patient keeping them from taking the medications needed. This is why you see some people lashing out on reviews toward companies who work with this population of people who are good people trying hard to help. We do not get into this field if your heart in not into helping the patient.

Residential Treatment and Day Treatment for Adults with Schizophrenia or Psychosis
As one of the nation's top treatment centers for schizophrenia, Drew Edmund Psychiatric Center provides expert, evidence-based psychiatric treatment for schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder in our mental health residential treatment and day treatment programs. Drew Edmund Psychiatric Center also specializes in treating adults with complex diagnoses such as depression with psychosis or bipolar disorder with psychosis. Residential treatment is our most intensive level of care for schizophrenia treatment or psychosis treatment. Residential treatment often is the best next step for adults leaving a hospital or acute care facility.

Effective Medication Therapy for Schizophrenia and Psychosis
Our first priority is to identify an appropriate medication strategy to reduce the symptoms of psychosis, to control the hallucinations and/or delusions. Untreated psychosis negatively affects the brain and can lead to cognitive decline and loss of IQ. Medication is critical in preventing these losses in cognition.
Our psychiatrists, therapists and counselors who lead the cognition and first episode community have the specialized skills needed to connect with young adults and get them talking. They help clients understand and reduce symptoms, express their thoughts and feelings in healthy ways, practice independent living skills (including medication adherence) and find effective ways to interact with peers and build relationships. Through individual and group therapy sessions, clients work to take responsibility for their problems, learn new coping skills and develop greater confidence in moving toward adulthood. Many therapeutic goals are focused on family roles.
