Improving Independence for Adults with Chronic Symptoms of Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia can be a devastating illness. The chronic symptoms of the disease can have a drastic effect on your quality of life, making it difficult to live as an independent adult.

At Affinity Treatment Centers in Vista, we strive to improve independence for adults with chronic symptoms of schizophrenia, doing everything in our power to foster the ability to care for yourself.

Residential Schizophrenia Treatment

We offer around the clock treatment at our location in Vista, providing residential treatment for those with schizophrenia. Part of this treatment method is finding the proper medications to help treat the symptoms of the disease, using evidence-based research to find the best possible treatment for your individual needs. Once a treatment is identified, we will guide patients through everyday activities, focusing on proper hygiene, positive interactions, nutrition, and the other life skills they need to live an independent life. In addition, Affinity Treatment Centers will provide social integration and relationship building training, emphasizing that schizophrenia should not block you from having personal relationships.

Personalized Schizophrenia Treatment and Therapy

At Affinity Treatment Centers, we provide a safe place for those with schizophrenia to talk about their feelings and emotions as they battle through the symptoms of the disorder. In these individualized, one-on-one sessions, you will talk to a trained schizophrenia expert who will help you cope with the illness, giving you tried and true strategies to fight the degenerative symptoms of the disease. An essential component of living an independent lifestyle with schizophrenia is becoming well-versed in the various coping mechanisms needed to fight through even the very worst symptoms of the disease.

Cognitive Remediation Therapy

Cognitive remediation therapy is a series of computer-based exercises and treatments that can help individuals better deal with the symptoms of schizophrenia. These activities help patients address some of the more debilitating symptoms of schizophrenia while simultaneously preventing further cognitive decline. Cognitive remediation therapy helps patients increase their memory, ability to think critically, and successfully plan for future events. This brain-training can help stop the deterioration of the brain, leading to the ability to live independently with schizophrenia.

Fostering Independence for Those with Schizophrenia

One of the keys for independence with schizophrenia is helping the patient learn social integration. Social integration is the ability to successfully socialize and live with others without causing a disruption or conflict. Social integration programs promote independence for adults with chronic symptoms of schizophrenia through group therapy, experience-based learning, and various other treatments.
