Recognizing that you need treatment for a psychotic disorder is the first step in taking back control from an illness that has been so disruptive to your life. At Ascension Saint Thomas Behavioral Health Hospital, we are here to help you when you’re ready to start your recovery journey.
If you’re living with an untreated psychotic disorder, you’ve likely experienced episodes of psychosis that have made the world around you feel dangerous or overwhelming.
Without healthy ways to manage these episodes, you may find yourself struggling to perform at work or have positive relationships with your loved ones.
Many people who are living with an untreated psychotic disorder have suffered loss. They’ve lost their jobs, important relationships, their homes and sometimes their freedom through incarceration.
Fortunately, help is available. The inpatient psychotic disorder treatment we provide at Ascension Saint Thomas Behavioral Health Hospital serves adults age 18 and older who are in crisis and need acute care to achieve stabilization.
During your inpatient stay with us, you can regain a sense of safety and stability, grounding yourself in a way that helps you identify what is real and what is a result of psychosis. You can also learn how to manage the behaviors and feelings that have been barriers to your healing and recovery.
When you take part in inpatient psychotic disorder treatment at Ascension Saint Thomas Behavioral Health Hospital, you’ll also have the opportunity to meet others who share your struggles with these conditions. For some people, these relationships become a source of ongoing support long after treatment ends.
Living with an untreated psychotic disorder can make you feel like there’s no hope for a fulfilling life, but our goal is to help adults discover the possibility of a brighter, more hopeful tomorrow.
There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to treatment for a psychotic disorder. These conditions impact everyone differently, and the way each person responds to treatment can vary. That’s why it’s so important to find a psychotic disorder treatment center that fits your specific needs.
When choosing a treatment place, it’s essential to find one where they will conduct a comprehensive assessment so that they can create a personalized treatment plan for you.
The healing environment at the treatment center you select is also crucial to your recovery and can make a positive difference in your progress. Consider looking for a treatment place where you’ll feel safe and supported so that you can make the changes needed to find lasting recovery.
You may also want to ask about what disorders they treat, what levels of care they provide and who is on your treatment team. You can reach out to the treatment center you’re interested in to get more information about their offerings.
The expert clinicians at Ascension Saint Thomas Behavioral Health Hospital use evidence-based therapies and interventions to promote the best treatment outcomes possible.
