This study aims to discuss the recovery process of a schizophrenic sufferer in the Schizo novel. This study then reveals several treatments and interventions used to treat the patient as well as the impact on their recuperation. This study focuses on two research questions: How did the family and the psychiatrist roles play their part in Miles’ cure and how did it affect Miles’ cure? This research applied a qualitative method. It used schizophrenia treatment theory that relies mainly on ways family support can assist in the management of mental illness and psychiatric management. The theories helped to explore the answers to the research problems. The researcher found the characteristic of family support and psychiatric management represented through the quotations and narratives about Miles’ recovery process in the Schizo novel. The result of this study shows that Miles’ family and the psychiatrist supported his recovery. The family assisted Miles’ treatment by providing the best care, raising people's awareness about the schizophrenia issue, identifying the warning sign of relapse, and empowering him to come back on his social life. Meanwhile, the psychiatrist helped Miles by examining his condition, setting the treatments, promoting treatment adherence, fixing his delusion, until educating both Miles and his family to deal with the illness. The cooperation between both of them in supporting Miles’ recuperation brought significant impacts on Miles’ cure. Miles’ condition was getting stable. He started to be open about his illness with others. Besides, he also accepted his schizophrenia and gained hope to be recovered.
