C4 provides compassionate and effective treatment that includes a combination of the following treatments:
Medication evaluation and treatment. There are several potentially effective medications that can help manage the symptoms of Schizophrenia. Our C4 psychiatrists can prescribe necessary medication for each client, monitoring and educating clients with regard to effectiveness and side effects. We also offer a weekly Clozaril clinic to monitor medication, and provide an opportunity for clients to socialize informally.
Case Management and Community Support Services. C4 clients are assessed with regard to their need for an individual community support worker or for an entire team of support professionals. Clients are educated about how to best cope with their illness and how to access important resources in the community. Clients are actively assisted to function at their highest level in their home and community.
Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services. C4 clients may be part of therapeutic group services, where new skills are learned in a mutually supportive social environment. Examples include life skills and socialization groups, yoga, journaling, exercise, cooking, dance, and more.
Supported Employment Services. C4 clients are helped to find jobs in the community, regardless of limitations and challenges.
Weekly Medical Clinic. C4 clients have access to physical exams and follow-up care.
