Psychotic disorders include a variety of symptoms and illnesses including psychosis, paranoia, and schizophrenia, and may at times occur as a dual diagnosis. It’s important to remember people are not their disorder. Just like anyone with an illness, they need to actively address and manage a set of symptoms to fully participate in life. The team at Butler Hospital offers a depth and breadth of services to help individuals establish the skills and medical treatment needed to live with episodic or chronic mental illness.
Starting with the Patient Assessment Services (PAS) team, the clinical teams work with the individual to evaluate the appropriate level of care needed to treat the current indications of illness. At times, patients require a level of intensive treatment only available through an inpatient stay. In many cases participation in a partial hospital day program offers the appropriate level of intervention or next level of care after an inpatient visit. Working with PAS, the team guides the patient, and their support system, in selecting the appropriate inpatient, partial hospital or outpatient program to best address the person’s health needs.
