What To Do for a Friend or Family Member Who Is Losing Touch with Reality
Gary DeVine has extensive experience working with people who suffer from hallucinations, delusions, disassociation, or catatonia. If you, or a loved one is experiencing one or more of these problems, take courage. It can be overcome.
Such problems typically require a visit to a psychopharmacologist and may require an inpatient stay, but not always. Most clients can maintain autonomy and control with their treatment if they are willing and able to work at getting better.
Pulling together many supports is key to well being.
Faith is essential.
Confidentiality is always maintained.
Book an appointment for a free consultation. There is nothing to lose and everything to gain (2 Kings 7:3-8 ;)
"For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace"
(1 Cor 14:33)1
 I know this is out of context, but I believe that the truth can be extrapolated to say that our Father doesn't desire for his children to have confused minds. 2 Tim 1:7; Rom 12:2; 1 Pet 1:13.
