RESTORE - First Episode Psychosis

 

Are you 16-40 years old and have trouble making sense of your thoughts, experiencing confusion, seeing and/or hearing things others do not?  Are you struggling with co-occurring substance abuse, anxiety, depression, or disruptive moods?

Contact Eyerly Ball’s Restore Team, which provides specialized treatment for First Episode of Psychosis.

 

Restore can help you (and your family) navigate the road to recovery from an episode of psychosis, including supporting efforts to function well at home, on the job, at school, and in the social world.  The RESTORE Program offers a team-based approach to treatment, including:

  1. Individual therapy focused on self-understanding and coping strategies
  2. Education for family members (or any support person)
  3. Employment/education support
  4. Medication management

 

The goal is recovery, which is defined as a person’s ability to experience a rewarding and meaningful life – even while the person may be managing or coping with existing symptoms.

 

HOW TO ACCESS SERVICES:

WHAT IS PSYCHOSIS?

It is a loss of contact with reality which is often associated with severe depression, Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, substance use or trauma.

 

WARNING SIGNS & SYMPTOMS

  • Reduced concentration
  • Decreased motivation
  • Depressed mood
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Anxiety
  • Social withdrawal
  • Suspiciousness
  • Deterioration in functioning at work or in school
  • Hearing voices or seeing things that are not there
  • Confusion
  • Loss of contact with reality

 

Why is it important to get treatment as soon as possible?

Early intervention improves the quality of life and reduces long-term levels of cognitive impairment.  The longer a person goes untreated, the longer it takes to stabilize the psychotic symptoms.
