River Edge InTUNE
InTUNE (Integrated Treatment Understanding Needs and Emotions)
River Edge’s InTUNE services are specially designed for young adults, ages 16-30, who have started experiencing symptoms of psychosis within the previous 24 months:
- Hearing and seeing things others don’t
- Experiencing smells, tastes or touch sensations others don’t
- Beliefs or thoughts that seem strange to others or the young adult
- Difficulty with thinking, concentrating, or remembering
- Trouble speaking or expressing thoughts
- Disorganized, manic, or unpredictable behaviors
- Decreased reaction to one’s environment
- Lack of emotion, motivation, or energy
- Withdrawing from family or friends
Research shows early, proper treatment prevents years of accumulating disability.
InTUNE participants and their families work with a coordinated specialty care team for approximately two years. The care team includes the young adult and his/her family , a counselor, case manager, supported employment and supported education specialist, peer specialist, family support specialist, prescriber, and a nurse.
The team works together to find the best medication for the individual. The young adult will also learn about his/her symptoms and develop important self-care techniques. He or she will build on their strengths to identify individualized goals and move forward to success in school, work, and life.
