How can paranoia be managed?

My nephew is exhibiting very paranoid behavior. He denies he is on pain meds but we don’t believe him. He is accusing his father-in-law of poisoning his water and his nephew of putting feces on his pillows for ex. He has had many back surgeries. Would there be some way we could speak to his dr. Considering the hips laws or do you have another suggestion.

Psychologist 's  Response

People suffering from a paranoid personality disorder or paranoia do behave in such a way. That is the way their psychology works. You should be careful in dealing with those.

He will never believe anyone near if you try to advise, contradict him again and again. You must consult a psychiatrist at the earliest for treatment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
