Care for Treatment-Resistant Disorders

Treatment-Resistant Mood Disorders Program

Our treatment-resistant mood disorders program offers comprehensive evaluation and therapies for those who have not responded to more than one preceding trial of antidepressants and/or mood stabilizers. Patients referred for electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) generally fit in this category.

Therapies include:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Deep-brain stimulation
  • ECT
  • Transcranial magnetic stimulation
  • Medication management

Refractory Psychosis Program

Our refractory psychosis program provides consultation to individuals and programs seeking recommendations for management and treatment of psychotic disorders, such as schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorders that have been resistant to treatment.

The program also offers ongoing medication management for patients with psychotic disorders who do not need a system of care to provide psychosocial rehabilitation. Diagnostic procedures, such as neuropsychological testing, brain imaging and blood tests, may be part of the evaluation.
