The RAISE Early Treatment Program (ETP) is a research study that compared two different ways of providing treatment for people experiencing the early stages of schizophrenia and related illnesses. Both types of treatment emphasized a comprehensive initial evaluation at the earliest point after symptoms appear. ETP treatments included medication, psychosocial therapies, and supportive services that address the multiple problems associated with these illnesses.
Dr. John Kane from the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research in Manhasset, NY directed the ETP study. The study took place in 34 community mental health centers and hospital outpatient mental health facilities in 21 states across the nation. For a complete list of the ETP treatment facilities see Study Locations.
