  4. 4.   Antipsychotic medicines are the “most effective treatment” for schizophrenia as they change the balance of chemicals in the brain and can help control symptoms. Support therapy may be a helpful alternative for schizophrenics as it teaches behavioral techniques, such as social skills training that will allow the person to function better in social and work situations. Job training and relationship-building classes are also important.
