Programs for Personality Disorder
Personality Disorder Treatment
Personality disorder, also known as borderline personality disorder, is a mental illness where a person experiences an extreme range of moods and behaviors. It typically begins in adolescence and continues throughout adulthood.
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), it’s estimated that 1.6 percent of the adult U.S. population has borderline personality disorder, but that number could be as high as 5.9 percent. In addition, nearly 75 percent of people diagnosed with borderline personality disorder are women.
At the Phoenix Recovery and Counseling Centers, we offer individualized treatment programs for mental health disorders, including treatment for borderline personality disorder. In addition, we know and understand the science of chemical dependency with its associated neurological changes and its impact upon the pleasure system, emotions, learning, memory, motivation, and most importantly, the ability to exercise choice. We know and understand the biological and psychological science that support treatments in trauma, emotional disorders, and other mental health concerns.
Below is information relating to borderline personality disorder and our treatment programs.
What is Personality Disorder?
Borderline personality disorder is a condition that affects a person’s emotions for extended periods of time. It impacts the way they think about themselves and others, causing strain in current and future relationships. Those with borderline personality disorder exhibit impulsive actions as well as intense episodes of depression, anger and anxiety than can last for days. Causes of personality disorder range from genetics to social factors, such as childhood experiences.
What Are Personality Disorder Symptoms?
Borderline personality disorder symptoms include:
- Frantic efforts to avoid imagined or real abandonment from family and friends
- View things in extremes (all good or all bad)
- Unstable self-image (quickly changing values, goals and relationships)
- Dangerous impulsive behaviors (substance abuse, gambling, reckless driving, excessive spending, unsafe sex, etc.)
- Chronic feelings of emptiness
- Inappropriate and intense anger
- Suicidal threats
- Periods of stress and paranoia
It’s important to note that not everyone with borderline personality disorder experiences every symptom listed above.
What is Personality Disorder Rehab and What Does That Look Like at PRC?
There is no one-size-fits-all treatment when it comes to borderline personality disorder, but it is treatable through the right programs. Typical borderline personality disorder treatment includes a combination of medications as well as psychotherapy, group therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Therapy can help patients gain skills to manage and cope with their condition. If safety is at risk, a hospitalization stay might be necessary.

The Phoenix Difference
The Phoenix Difference constitutes a carefully tailored program and recovery experience defined by research. Every effort is directed at supporting outcomes that prepare patients and their families with both the knowledge and applied behaviors to manage mental health disorders and to reclaim a meaningful life.
Furthermore, the Phoenix Recovery and Counseling Centers are driven by the guiding mission statement: “Empowering individuals and families suffering from addiction and mental health disorders, to celebrate life through lasting solutions.” We accomplish the therapeutic and healing experience through a continuum of care that begins with Residential Treatment and traverses across a Day Program, Intensive Outpatient (IOP), to General Outpatient (GOP). Lastly, the continuum of care culminates in a weekly Alumni Support Meeting, which provides a recovery support community to sustain the recovery capital of The Phoenix Alumni.
