Borderline Personality Disorder Treatment Programs at Haven
Most of us will struggle with low self-esteem at some point in our lives. When your self-image and your view of the world go to extremes, this kind of distorted thinking could indicate a mental health disorder known as borderline personality disorder (BPD).
Individuals with BPD experience patterns of false perceptions about themselves and others, extreme emotions, frequent mood swings and impulsive behavior that interfere with daily functioning. As a result, their relationships can be intense and chaotic, and they may push those close to them away.
Symptoms of BPD may include:
- An intense fear of abandonment or rejection
- A history of unstable, “love-hate” relationships
- Periods of paranoia
- High-risk behavior
- Sudden shifts in self-identity, goals or values
- Wide mood swings that may include intense anger, anxiety or happiness
- Threats of self-harm
While borderline personality disorder can be very disruptive, the condition can be managed with the right treatment. Our trained clinicians will work with you to develop an individualized plan of care designed to help you get better and live a fulfilling life.
