Schizophrenia: Diagnosis and Treatment

Specialists at Pure Recovery LIC understand that schizophrenia can disrupt the lives of many people, the person with the condition as well as family members, coworkers, and friends. Our psychiatrists treat schizophrenia with medication and with several different types of therapy to address the behavioral, psychological, and social problems associated with the condition.

The symptoms of schizophrenia may include hallucinations, delusional or distorted thoughts, or paranoia. Schizophrenia is a chronic or ongoing brain disorder that affects thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
Schizophrenia patients are most likely to hear voices as a hallucination. These voices can direct them about their actions, make them do things & or warn them of danger. It may take a long time to notice a change in their behavior when they hear voices for a long time. They may even hear voices talking to each other.

In addition to firmly held beliefs, they may also suffer from paranoid delusions, such as paranoid beliefs that others intend to harm them, spy on them, or read their minds. In the same cultural community, delusions can encompass a wide range of beliefs that other members find strange and contrary to their own experiences.

Symptoms of Schizophrenia

An individual with schizophrenia experiences psychosis, a medical condition that distorts their perceptions of reality. As a result of a mental disconnect from reality, people with schizophrenia undergo sudden changes in their personalities and behavior and are unable to distinguish between reality and fantasy. Hallucinations and delusions are common psychotic symptoms among people with schizophrenia.
Schizophrenia symptoms vary and may even change over time, and the diagnosis process includes ruling out forms of substance abuse, depression, or bipolar disorder associated with similar symptoms.

In addition to having poor interpersonal skills, people with schizophrenia may experience difficulty initiating conversations and participating in other activities. Individuals with schizophrenia may also have difficulty paying attention, remembering, processing information, and solving problems. Personal hygiene may deteriorate and cognitive functioning may decline.

Men and women are equally affected by this condition. Men tend to develop it in late adolescence or early adulthood, while women tend to show it in later adolescence or early adulthood. A person with schizophrenia is one percent more likely to suffer from it than anyone who has a first-degree relative with the disorder, such as a parent or sibling. Also, people who have second-degree relatives with schizophrenia, such as aunts, uncles, or grandparents, are more likely to develop the condition.

Psychosocial Therapy for Schizophrenia

A variety of Pure Recovery LIC specialists, including psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, social workers, and others, provide psychosocial therapy to help patients with schizophrenia manage their behavioral, psychological, and social problems. A person with this condition may find it difficult to communicate and maintain a job, so psychosocial treatment can help them manage those challenges. A person with a mental illness or who has taken antipsychotic medication is most likely to benefit from this treatment.

Those living with schizophrenia and their families can benefit from the guidance of a therapist. A combination of individual and family therapy is offered at our treatment facility to teach coping skills in social situations, at home, in family relationships, and at work. Individuals with schizophrenia and those around them can benefit from a therapist’s assistance in understanding and adjusting to the need for long-term treatment.

Our experts are responsible for educating patients about the condition, discussing common symptoms, and emphasizing how important it is to continue taking the prescribed medication during psychosocial therapy sessions. Psychosocial treatment increases the likelihood that patients will continue taking their medication and reduces the likelihood of relapses.

Treatment sessions are conducted in an outpatient setting. A person’s length of treatment depends on the severity of their symptoms, such as psychotic episodes that affect a person’s health or safety and cause a sudden change in personality and behavior. In the case of less severe symptoms, follow-up appointments may only be necessary periodically.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Schizophrenia

It is possible to treat schizophrenia with cognitive behavioral therapy. In CBT, a person learns to modify beliefs or behaviors that may contribute to negative emotions. It consists of two major components: a cognitive component, which helps the individual to change the way he or she thinks about a situation, and a behavioral component, which helps the individual change the way he or she reacts.
A problem-focused approach is used in cognitive behavioral therapy to help people with schizophrenia develop coping skills to handle difficult situations. Typically, this type of therapy takes place for 12 to 16 weeks and is given one hour a week.

An individual participating in cognitive behavioral therapy learns how their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors influence one another through sessions with a therapist. By teaching strategies to modify negative thoughts and respond to them differently, a therapist helps change unwanted feelings or problematic behaviors. By teaching the person to test their perceptions and thoughts, ignore voices, and manage symptoms, the therapist teaches them how to manage symptoms.
People with schizophrenia can also benefit from cognitive behavioral therapy by improving their social skills and problem-solving abilities, reducing the severity of their symptoms, and reducing their risk of relapsing.
