Outpatient Treatment of Schizophrenics
In the United States, over 1% of the population carries a diagnosis of schizophrenia. Schizophrenics occupy one-third to one-half of all psychiatric hospital beds (Goodwin & Guze, 1979), and compared to other psychiatric patients, require longer inpatient treatment, show lower levels of adjustment following discharge, and return more frequently to the hospital.
