My son continues to make strides. He has been sleeping more regularly, has continued to communicate more, has not been smoking weed (I am afraid that is just because he has no money at the moment), and has been working steadily at a new job. I have introduced the idea of CBT (and indeed have been practicing it somewhat on him) and he is not opposed to trying it out. I also have spoken of medication in a very non-confrontational way, and he is at least not completely freaked out over the idea. I would love to have him on Clozapine, but that is probably a distant goal.
Today I am wondering if any of you have had experience getting a loved one into therapy without medication. I found a CBT therapist in my area that listed that she works with people with psychosis, but when I contacted the clinic where she works I was told that they could not take on my son as a patient. I am assuming that this is because he is unmedicated. I truly believe that he could benefit from therapy even though he is not medicated. Have any of you had any success with finding therapists that are willing to work with unmedicated patients?
