  • Dr. Alan & Diane Breier PARC Coordinated Specialty Care (Dr. Alan & Diane Breier PARC CSC)

    Dr. Alan & Diane Breier PARC CSC provides early screening, prevention and intervention services for individuals ages 14 to 35 who have experienced a first episode of psychosis within the past five years.

    PARC CSC provides comprehensive clinical services with multidisciplinary teams evaluating and addressing every participant’s individual needs. Each team member completes training specific to first episode psychosis and adheres to the evidence-based “OnTrack” model of care.

    Three clinical teams serve program participants, with each comprised of a psychiatrist, psychologist, therapist, case manager, nurse, clinical pharmacist, supportive employment and education specialist, and a team lead. Additional staff provide outreach and educational services in the community and across the state of Indiana. The PARC CSC program aims to improve functioning, promote wellness and recovery, and ultimately improve outcomes for young people with psychotic disorders.
    If you or someone you know is experiencing first episode or recent onset psychosis, please call the referral line at 317.880.8669.
  • Dr. Alan & Diane Breier PARC Research

    Dr. Alan & Diane Breier PARC is dedicated to furthering the understanding of the causes of psychosis and developing new, more effective treatment alternatives. As a center of research excellence, Dr. Alan & Diane Breier PARC partners with the Indiana University Psychotic Disorders Program (IUPDP) to conduct cutting-edge clinical trials of novel therapeutics for psychosis. Additionally, neuroimaging technologies are used to investigate the roles of brain structure, function and metabolism in illness occurrence. Since opening, the program has enrolled hundreds of young individuals with early psychosis for treatment, many of whom also participate in research studies.

    Research conducted includes surveys and questionnaires, medication trials, psychotherapy trials, brain imaging, repetitive transcranial stimulation and genetic studies. Research helps to develop new drugs to help fight disease and illness, and every participant is important in reaching those goals. Participants receive excellent medical care, may receive study procedures at no cost and are often paid for their time. Participation in research is voluntary.

    A physician reviews volunteers’ medical history, and the research team answers questions and determines if they qualify. Patients can discontinue participation at any time, and volunteering does not affect their clinical care. 

    If you or someone you know if interested in participating in a research program, please call 317.880.8495.

Team members work to develop and maintain strong relationships with program participants and their families to support recovery and prevent relapse. They tailor treatment to each individual and employ many approaches including education, case management services, individual and group therapy, employment/educational services, and psychiatric medication management. 

Team members also communicate with other health care providers and key community-based professionals to enhance understanding of mental illness among individuals outside the mental health field.
