A personality disorder is a mental health disorder that often leads to long-term, unhealthy thought and behavior patterns when left untreated. The illness can cause problems in your everyday life, including difficulties at work and in your relationships. If you have a personality disorder, you might also find it hard to cope with stress.
Some common personality disorders include:
While childhood experiences and genetics might play a role in developing personality disorders, the exact cause isn’t entirely clear.
To determine if you or a loved one is experiencing a personality disorder, your therapist reviews your personal and family medical history. They ask you or family members about your thoughts, emotions, and behavior patterns, and complete a comprehensive mental health evaluation.
After diagnosing your condition, the team at The Transformation Center might recommend one of the following interventions:
The intensive outpatient treatment program at The Transformation Center offers individual and group counseling, educational classes, and a variety of behavioral adaptation strategies to help you better cope at work, school, and in your relationships.
The partial hospitalization program at The Transformation Center is a day counseling program that includes a medical component in addition to individual and group therapy sessions, mind-body interventions, and educational sessions.
Taking certain medications can reduce symptoms associated with personality disorders or other mental health conditions. Your provider often combines medications with counseling and education.
