Yuba City Treament for Mental Health
The Machete Murderer was originally from Mexico but moved to Yuba City, California in the 1950s to work as a produce field worker. Named Juan Corona, he was diagnosed with schizophrenia but did not receive the treatment he needed – and ultimately went on a six-week killing spree that left 25 men dead.
Though schizophrenia and violence are not synonymous, it can be difficult for those who are living with the disease to control impulses. Many find it hard to integrate socially and experience a wide range of social issues as a result.

In most cases, schizophrenia is initially addressed through medication. Though Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, alternative treatments, and holistic treatments like acupuncture and yoga may be beneficial add-on therapies, medication is almost always of primary importance. Why? In the event that delusions, auditory hallucinations or extreme paranoia are taking over, it is essential to stop those symptoms immediately – and only medication can accomplish that.
In many cases, finding the right mix and dose of medications can take months. It is also often the result that symptoms are only mitigated and not completely eliminated. In these cases, it becomes important to work hard on learning the tools to recognize when the disorder is taking over and stop it in its tracks.
