The Casebook of a Residential Care Psychiatrist: Psychopharmacosocioeconomics and the Treatment of Schizophrenia in Residential Care Facilities addresses the problems involved in the onsite treatment of mentally ill patients in residential care facilities. This book is the first to identify the need for psychiatrists to be available to individuals in such facilities as adult homes, community care homes, transitional living facilities, and rest homes. This vital resource also contains specific recommendations as to how these visits should be conducted with regard to frequency, duration, space, and the types of Medicare procedure codes to utilize.

The book also discusses the profound changes psychiatric drugs have produced in the social, economic, and legal arenas. Using anecdotes, personal stories, and actual documents from Dr. Fleishman’s files, this book provides you with a wealth of knowledge not found anywhere else.
