Life Adjustment Team’s Personality Disorders Treatment Services

Understanding Personality Disorders

Personality disorders can significantly impact daily life, relationships, and overall well-being. At Life Adjustment Team, we recognize the unique challenges posed by conditions like Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD), and Avoidant Personality Disorder (AvPD). Understanding the nuances of each disorder allows us to tailor our approach to meet individual needs.

At Life Adjustment Team, we offer individuals with personality disorders the ability to receive personalized support with effective solutions. We offer comprehensive treatment for personality disorders, helping you or your loved one overcome the complexities of personality disorders and providing a path to long-term healing and quality of life improvements.

Our commitment to personalized and collaborative care sets us apart. We believe in addressing the root causes of personality disorders and empowering individuals to build healthier, more fulfilling lives. Through a combination of psychotherapy, medication management, and practical skill-building, we guide our clients on a journey of self-discovery and positive change.

Types of Personality Disorders Treated

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)

Characterized by intense emotions and challenges in interpersonal relationships, BPD requires a nuanced approach. Our team is experienced in helping individuals manage emotional dysregulation and develop healthier coping mechanisms.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD)

Navigating the complexities of NPD involves understanding and addressing self-centered behaviors that can impact personal and professional relationships. Our therapeutic strategies aim at fostering empathy and healthier interpersonal dynamics.

Avoidant Personality Disorder (AvPD)

Social anxiety and persistent avoidance patterns can be debilitating. We provide support and practical tools to help individuals overcome avoidance behaviors, build more meaningful connections, and increase self-esteem.

Life Adjustment Team’s Path to Healing

Psychotherapy and Personality Disorders

Our psychotherapeutic approach employs evidence-based modalities tailored to the unique needs of personality disorders. According to the National Comorbidity Study Replication (NCS-R), our approach aligns with the prevalence of personality disorders among U.S. adults, with a past-year prevalence of 9.1% for any personality disorder and 1.4% for BPD.

Through individual counseling and group therapy, we help clients explore their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors in a supportive environment.

Medication Management

Our experienced team collaborates with clients to explore medication options that may alleviate specific symptoms associated with personality disorders. According to the NCS-R, 39.0% of respondents with any personality disorder and 42.4% with BPD reported receiving mental health treatment in the past 12 months.

We prioritize education, ensuring informed decision-making and optimal treatment outcomes.

Coping Skills Training

Practical skills are crucial in managing the challenges posed by personality disorders. According to the NCS-R, a large proportion of people with past-year personality disorders (84.5%) also had one or more other mental disorder(s). Our coping skills training provides effective strategies, enhancing emotional regulation and interpersonal effectiveness.

Our Treatment Programs

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) for Personality Disorders

Our structured IOP offers a multi-disciplinary approach, combining group therapy, individual counseling, and skill-building components. According to the NCS-R, our program aligns with the co-morbidity rates, addressing conditions such as anxiety disorders (52.4% for any personality disorder, 60.5% for BPD) and mood disorders (24.1% for any personality disorder, 34.3% for BPD).

Designed to fit into busy schedules, it provides comprehensive support for individuals seeking intensive care without full hospitalization.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for Personality Disorders

For those requiring daily care without full hospitalization, our PHP offers a comprehensive solution. According to the NCS-R, 67.0% of individuals with any personality disorder and 84.5% with BPD had any disorder.

With daily therapy sessions, psychiatric assessment, and holistic treatment planning, clients receive the support needed to stabilize symptoms and transition to a lower level of care.
