Dear Sirs/ Madam
I am a single mom, caregiver to my adult 32year old son, who has been diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. The CT Scan shows frontal lobe cortical atrophy.
There is dual diagnosis, in that, he had started taking hard core narcotic drugs, ended up in a mental hospita for a month, dicharged and started smoking canibis as though he were smoking cigarettes. He does smoke cigarettes too. 5months later , he ended up in the mental hospital again and was discharged to a rehab facility.
He was discharged from the rehab because they found him in a psychotic state ( reason being, they were not giving him his medication). He is back , refusing medication most of the time. He is on olanzapine.
Kindly assist in any advise, or the latest therapy or medication that can help him with recovery and methods to cope.
I would be greatly appreciated.
