Schizophrenia is a treatable disease. This does not mean that schizophrenia is curable, however. To say that schizophrenia is treatable means that its symptoms can be controlled. In contrast, saying that there is a cure for schizophrenia would mean that a permanent removal of all of its causes is possible. Curing schizophrenia will not become possible until we truly understand its causes. In the meantime, schizophrenia researchers are working to improve treatments for this disorder.
