I: Therapy and Medications
Therapy is a process through which patients work with mental health clinicians (such as a therapist) to solve problems by changing and healing ineffective thoughts, patterns, emotions and behaviors. A range of therapies have been shown to be effective for those affected by Borderline Disorder.
Medications have been shown to promptly reduce some of the main symptoms of Borderline Disorder. Learn more about how the right application of medications may calm emotional reactions, decrease impulsivity and increase reasoning and thinking skills. Medications have also been shown to be helpful in treating the co-occurring disorders often associated with the Disorder.
Inpatient Treatment is an option for care as part of your treatment plan where you receive high levels of care and supervision, for a recommended amount of time, in a hospital or residential facility. An inpatient facility may be best if you are at risk of hurting yourself or others, providing a space for you to stabilize your life and receive the care you need and deserve.
For you to lead a healthy, productive and happy life, it is necessary to learn skills that you were not able to since the onset of Borderline Disorder. Learning and utilizing a strong catalog of skills can help you strengthen your relationship with your loved ones and help you to live a less stressful and happier life.
