In brief: Alternative tx?

I don't know what you mean by "alternative treatments for schizophrenia".
It you can tell me what they are - i will try to comment on each. Schizophrenia requires life-long treatment with use of atypical antipsychotics as the mainstay. Conventional neuroleptics are an option. Psychosocial treatments that go hand in hand with meds include: family therapy, social skills training & voc rehab.
