10 Elements of Successful Schizophrenia Treatment, Part 2

In part one, we at the Blair Wellness Group introduced the first five elements to successful schizophrenia treatment. Here in part two, we will continue on with the final five that will continue to expand your insight into effective treatment strategies for schizophrenia. Let’s begin!

Successful Treatment Strategy

Many people with schizophrenia can benefit from treatment and live productive and fulfilling lives. Some individuals recover exceedingly well, while others remain symptomatic and require more intensive care, as with other chronic illnesses. Many elements will improve your chances of successful schizophrenia treatment. 

5. Coping with Stigma

As a family caregiver, you may be concerned about the stigma you may experience due to the person with schizophrenia’s conduct. You might be inclined to hide their sickness, but this would only serve to increase the stigma. Instead, strive to accept their disorder while still assisting them in leading the best life possible.

4. Stable Living

A person with schizophrenia needs a stable living environment. The location will be determined by their ability to care for themselves and the amount of supervision they require. Unless the individual has significant concerns that necessitate a more controlled setting, such as substance misuse, medication refusal, or other behavioral problems, living with the caregiver is frequently the best option if it is possible. A residential treatment center or 24-hour care facility, a group home, or a monitored apartment are more alternatives.

3 Be Informed 

Schizophrenia is a chronic brain disease that affects fewer than 1% of the population in the United States. Symptoms of schizophrenia include delusions, hallucinations, disordered speech, difficulty thinking, and a lack of desire. Most symptoms of schizophrenia can be considerably improved with therapy, and the risk of recurrence can be reduced. Researchers think that various genetic and environmental variables have a role in the prevalence and that life stresses may influence the onset and progression of symptoms. Here at Blair Wellness Group, we strive to provide the information to help you or a loved one with mental illness. Call now for more information about how to treat schizophrenia successfully.

2 Go to Support Groups

Extensive research reveals that talk therapy helps schizophrenia patients and lessens their need for antipsychotic medicines. According to this study in the American Journal of Psychiatry, patients with schizophrenia who had more one-on-one talk therapy and family support recovered faster than those who got routine drug-centered care.

1 Returning to Normal IS Possible

Research has shown that many people with schizophrenia may make considerable, if not total, improvements in their condition with the right therapy. Many people may, for example, live reasonable everyday lives outside of hospitals, working and interacting with family and friends regularly. Remember that there is no cure for schizophrenia, but with following the elements to successful treatment for this mental illness, there is hope that things will get better.

Everyone feels anxious from time to time. Perhaps you have a work deadline to meet, you’re worried about a potential health concern, or you’re feeling stressed because there just never seems to be enough hours in the day to get everything done.
