Individuals with paranoid schizophrenia will display a preoccupation with delusions (both auditory and visual) or extremely realistic hallucinations. Disorganized schizophrenia is noted by inexplicable and disorganized speech or behavior. Catatonic schizophrenia can feature symptoms such as sudden immobility, a strange physical rigidity or bizarre movements.
Currently, available treatments can provide relief. However, most people with psychotic disorders continue to suffer from some symptoms throughout their lives. Psychotic disorders, including schizophrenia, represent a serious mental health diagnosis.
The barriers created by these disorders will affect all aspects of a person’s life. Many treatment programs focus on brief, crisis-oriented approaches, but the Brookhaven program offers treatment resources as well as coping behaviors for the individual throughout all phases of their illness, not just the worst parts.
Brookhaven helps individuals by offering every choice in treatment, cultivating patients’ well being and giving them the tools they need to lead productive lives.
Recent outcome studies reveal that over 92% of our patients felt that their treatment at Brookhaven enabled them to deal with future mental health problems.
