Borderline Personality Disorder Treatment Center

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) generates significant emotional instability that can lead to a variety of stressful mental and behavioral problems. With BPD, clients have a severely distorted self-image, and believe they are fundamentally flawed. They experience feelings of worthlessness, anger, and impulsiveness with frequent mood swings. They usually push others away even though they may desire loving relationships. This disorder occurs in most people in early adulthood however, the unstable pattern of interacting with others has often persisted for years. Treatment for borderline personality disorder is required in order to help an individual get on the path to wellness.

BPD is known to be more prevalent in females (75%), and research shows that it affects approximately 2% of the general population. It normally decreases in intensity with age, and most people experience fewer extreme symptoms by their 40s or 50s.

With borderline personality disorder, the perception of impending separation or rejection can lead to changes in self-image, behavior, emotion or thinking. Someone with BPD will be very sensitive to everything that happens around them. They experience intense fear and anger when there are unavoidable changes in plans. For example, being a few minutes late or having to cancel a date can trigger an unexplained rage. Abandonment implies that they are “bad”, and this fear is related to an intolerance to being alone. Their frantic efforts to avoid abandonment may cause impulsive, self-destructive actions such as self-mutilation or suicidal tendencies. These are only a few of the many reasons why borderline personality disorder treatment is so crucial.

Some of the symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder may include:

Researchers today do not know the causes of BPD. Some likely causes are thought to be due to biological and genetic factors, social factors, and psychological factors. This suggests that there are no single factors responsible; rather it is the complex and likely intertwined nature of all related factors that contribute to borderline personality disorder.

  • Efforts to avoid real or imagined abandonment
  • Unstable and intense relationships
  • Identity disturbance (such as an unstable self-image)
  • Recurrent suicidal behavior
  • Chronic feelings of emptiness
  • Inappropriate intense anger
  • Stress-related paranoid thoughts
