In brief: Medications

Schizophrenia of essentially any type requires medications, although much more also may be needed.
Especially with disorganized schizophrenia, the individual often has trouble follow through on the most basic tasks of daily living. Medications may make a big dfifference, but other social support may be essential for the individual and the family.

In brief: The same methods

Used to treat any other subtype of schizophrenia.
Medications are key in decreasing or eliminating both positive and negative symptoms. Individual and family counseling are also necessary to help the person and the caregivers. Lastly, vocational counseling is important to help the person have a productive/successful life.
