Treatment for Schizophrenia

Treatment for Schizophrenia at Park Royal

Schizophrenia is a severe, long-term illness than can cause people to have a hard time living a life free of psychiatric difficulties. People with schizophrenia often believe other people can read their thoughts or are planning to harm them, they may hear voices that are not there, and may experience visual hallucinations. These symptoms are not only debilitating, but also can cause feelings of extreme fear for those who don’t know what may be wrong with them. Not only is schizophrenia hard for the person suffering, but is takes a toll on the family as well. Family members may not know what is causing these bizarre behaviors and even more troubling may not know what to do to help their loved one. All of these factors can cause an enormous amount of stress and disrupt the family dynamic when people do not seek help from a professional treatment center or hospital that specializes in schizophrenia.

Schizophrenia is not curable, but with proper support and treatment most of the symptoms can be reduced or eliminated. However, additional coping mechanisms and life skills will need to be learned in order to help people control symptoms throughout their lifetime. While this may seem discouraging, all hope is not lost as many people diagnosed with schizophrenia are able to get their condition under control and live happy meaningful lives. Fortunately, Park Royal Hospital in Fort Myers, FL offers high-quality schizophrenia treatment at our center where you can find health and wellness once more. The treatment staff at Park Royal Hospital is fully qualified to help you with this recovery process and get you back to living a life you deserve.

Treatment Options

Treatment Options for Schizophrenia at Our Hospital in Fort Myers, FL

The best approach for treating schizophrenia is an inpatient hospital setting that provides stabilization along with medication and therapeutic approaches. You will work with our multidisciplinary teams while at our treatment center for schizophrenia to determine what has worked for you in the past and what may work for you in the future.

Medication is often utilized at Park Royal Hospital in the care of people who have schizophrenia as symptom management is vital to allow individuals to engage in other therapeutic methods. Likely, your medications will include anti-psychotic medications. Anti-psychotic medications have been around for many years and are divided into two categories: typical and atypical anti-psychotics. Typical anti-psychotics are older medications that tend to cause more unpleasant side effects while the atypical medications are a more recent medication class that cause less serious side effects and may work differently. Which medication works best depends on the person. In addition to medication management, Park Royal Hospital offers a number of psycho-social treatments that can help individuals with schizophrenia once they’ve been stabilized on an anti-psychotic medication.

At Park Royal Hospital, we offer individual therapy for those who need more one-on-one time with a therapist in order to work through specific individual concerns while at our treatment center for schizophrenia. Individual therapy allows for a person with schizophrenia to learn about the disorder and treatments in order to make informed decisions about their individualized care.

We’re very proud of the group therapies we offer for the treatment of schizophrenia at Park Royal Hospital, which include both process-based and psycho-educational groups. Process-based groups tend to focus on a specific topic about your disorder, such as managing symptoms, and allow you to discuss your feelings and concerns with others who are facing similar struggles. The psycho-educational groups at our treatment center for schizophrenia are designed to teach you the importance of adhering to your medication regimen, warning signs of a relapse, how to cope with specific situations, as well as symptoms of your disorder.

Park Royal Hospital firmly believes in including your family in your recovery as much as you are comfortable with. Family sessions at our treatment center for schizophrenia are used to discuss the family dynamics surrounding your illness, educate family members about schizophrenia, and allow your family the space to share the feelings they have about your disorder. We will help to teach your family coping skills and problem-solving skills in order to ensure that they understand the importance of adhering to a treatment regimen for schizophrenia.

We believe that including experiential treatments in your treatment plan is important and effective for your continued healing. These plans for the treatment of schizophrenia at our Fort Myer’s center may include:

  • Leisure therapy
  • Recreational programs
  • N.A. and A.A.
  • Occupational therapy
  • Physical therapy
Continuing Care

Continuing Care – What Happens Next?

After you have stabilized on your medications and have learned many coping strategies at our treatment center for schizophrenia, you and your treatment team will eventually decide that you no longer require inpatient treatment for schizophrenia. At Park Royal Hospital, we will work with you to put in place the discharge plan created by our team of discharge planners to best suit your continued needs. We want to ensure continuity of care that will lead you to be successful in your recovery from schizophrenia.

In the event that you have made enough progress at our center for the treatment of schizophrenia to be discharged home, we will do everything we can to also connect you with a local provider for continued therapy as well as community resources. If you need more of a structured environment our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) has been shown very effective. This program is designed for individuals who have completed inpatient treatment for schizophrenia, but still require more time to work on their recovery. Throughout your participation in this program, you will be involved in group sessions, individual therapy, and educational programs. Focus will be placed on improving mood, socialization skills, support systems, and interpersonal relationships.
