Rehabilitation for schizophrenia

Modern psychiatry has made great strides in the treatment of schizophrenia. The use of modern drugs allows you to quickly stop an acute attack, prevent a relapse of the disease.

Rehabilitation for schizophrenia

What is the reason that the majority of patients, despite the treatment, again end up in the walls of psychiatric clinics? This is mainly due to the refusal to take supportive therapy, an independent, uncontrolled reduction in the doses of drugs taken. The easiest way, of course, is to accuse patients of irresponsibility, placing all the blame on them for another relapse of the disease. However, a good deal of the blame for the current situation still rests with doctors and the health care system as a whole.

Often, after being discharged from a psychiatric hospital, the patient is virtually left to himself. He is faced with the wary glances of family and colleagues at work, or even tries to hide the fact of his hospitalization. He is left alone with fears for his future, which often seems uncertain.

Symptoms of the disease

Do not forget that in addition to such “bright” symptoms as delirium and hallucinations during an attack, the disease can manifest itself as causeless anxiety, mood swings, peculiar personality changes that make it difficult to communicate with people and a correct understanding of the world around us in general.

Thus, the patient needs support and rehabilitation for a long period after an acute episode. Rehabilitation of patients with schizophrenia includes, first of all, informing the patient and his family about the disease, debunking public “myths” about schizophrenia.

Rational employment of patients is very important, allowing them not to fall out of society, to feel useful, needed. Finally, the importance of psychotherapy should not be underestimated, allowing the patient to adapt to the world around him, to understand his illness and to consult a doctor in a timely manner to prevent relapse. Finding the patient in the field of view of the psychotherapist also allows you to timely adjust the dose of drugs, adjust the treatment regimen, without waiting for the patient to do it on his own due to excessive arrogance or side effects.
