  • False perceptions or beliefs
  • Disorganized thoughts or behaviors
  • Disordered thinking
  • Problems concentrating
  • Social withdrawal
  • Irritability
  • Paranoia

Psychotic disorders can make it difficult to hold a job, maintain strong relationships, and live a fulfilling, productive life. Seek treatment for yourself or a loved one at the first sign of a psychotic disorder.

What causes psychotic disorders?

Psychotic disorders can occur due to many reasons, including alcohol or drug misuse, brain infections, stroke, and brain tumors. Other risk factors for psychotic disorders include a family history of mental illnesses, genetic factors, hormone changes, and disrupted sleep patterns.

How does my provider diagnose psychotic disorders?

To diagnose psychotic disorders and develop an effective treatment, specialists at The Transformation Center check your vital signs, ask questions about your symptoms, speak with family members, and complete a mental health assessment and physical examination. They might recommend a brain scan to detect or rule out a head injury, delirium, and epilepsy.

What are psychotic disorder treatments?

Your provider might recommend one or more of the following treatments for psychotic disorders:

Intensive outpatient treatment program (IOP)

During outpatient treatment at The Transformation Center, you undergo evidence-based individual and group counseling, nutrition assessments and education, mindfulness training, psychoeducation, cognitive behavioral therapy, and other types of therapy.

Partial hospitalization programs (PHP)

Partial hospitalization programs are day programs that combine counseling with educational sessions, family therapy as needed, and medication management. You might transition to the outpatient treatment program from partial hospitalization programs over time.

Medication management

Your provider offers medication management as part of PHP or inpatient programs at The Transformation Center or as a stand-alone treatment. They personalize each medication regimen to minimize symptoms associated with psychotic disorders and optimize your quality of life.
