Patient-Centered Psychopharmacology and Psychosocial Interventions: Treatment Selection and Shared Decision-Making to Enhance Chances for Recovery

Article Abstract

Individuals with schizophrenia can achieve the ultimate goal of treatment—recovery. However, patients are often nonadherent to prescribed medication regimens, leading to relapses and significantly decreasing their chances of ever reaching this goal. By implementing patient-centered assessment and evidence-based pharmacologic and psychosocial interventions, such as LAI antipsychotics, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and motivational interviewing, clinicians can improve medication adherence and enhance the potential for functional recovery.
