Further, what Drs. Dinakar and Sobel define as "psychotherapy"(symptom management, psychoeducation, and supportive therapy offered in the context of case management and medication monitoring), we have called "supportive therapy"in our studies. Our results suggest that significant symptom improvement and minor gains in social adjustment do occur during the first year of supportive therapy, but little or no continuing improvement is to be found in subsequent years. Personal therapy, on the other hand, significantly grows in efficacy with the passage of time (R15602CHDCCBFH). It is difficult to conclude that 83% of recovering schizophrenic patients would not need or desire such an intervention. While it is unlikely that personal therapy could be offered for $231 annually for each patient, it could prove to be cost-effective over time, once the savings from reduced inpatient use and increased social and vocational functioning entered the equation.
