Tourette Syndrome Treatment

Isn’t it something strange when you experience involuntary tics and movements? Tourette Syndrome can be embarrassing and limiting. It is a complex neurological disorder that can cause physical, vocal, and verbal tics. But don’t worry – there are many treatments available!

Tourette Syndrome in Adults

Do not even think of shying away from seeking help. Adults with Tourette Syndrome can often benefit from the same treatments as children, including a combination of medications and therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT can be especially beneficial to adults by helping them develop coping skills to manage their tics better and improve their quality of life. 

At Faith Behavioral Health, our team of highly trained professionals and professional psychiatrists are dedicated to helping adults with Tourette Syndrome manage their symptoms and live happy and fulfilling lives.

Tourette Syndrome in Children

It can be especially difficult for children living with Tourette Syndrome. They often face social stigma or bullying due to the visible tics they experience. It’s important for parents to recognize the signs of Tourette Syndrome, such as sudden movements or jerking and vocal outbursts.

Our child psychiatrists provide specialized care for children with Tourette Syndrome. We use a combination of medication and therapies to help them manage their symptoms and live healthy, successful lives. We also work with parents to create an environment that is supportive and understanding. 

Another important part of managing Tourette Syndrome is education. We provide comprehensive education on the disorder and help children understand their condition. This can go a long way to helping them cope with their tics, both socially and emotionally.
