Arizona Borderline Personality Disorder Treatment

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a mental illness that seriously impairs everyday emotional control. Left untreated, it can have major, negative repercussions for your ability to function. That’s true even if you have no other mental health issues. Unfortunately, BPD is known for its ability to increase your exposure to these kinds of issues. That includes significantly elevated risks for substance abuse and addiction. And when they occur together BPD and substance problems can interact and intensify their overall impact on you.

Dual diagnosis treatment can help you overcome the interactive effects of addiction and BPD. This treatment helps limit BPD’s damaging personality alterations. In addition, it helps you break your reliance on drugs and alcohol. By addressing each issue affecting you, it provides essential benefits for your well-being and functional health.

Borderline Personality Disorder Facts and Statistics

Borderline personality disorder is a somewhat mislabeled condition. Originally, it was thought to “border” on the verge of other kinds of personality disorders. While that idea has long since been abandoned, the name remains unchanged. 

What is BPD? Like all personality disorders, it distorts your thoughts, moods and behavior in ways that leave you less functional. The particular distortions associated with it can lead to problems such as:

  • Severely decreased emotional control
  • Unstable relationships that have a heightened intensity and tend to fail
  • Extreme dread of being abandoned
  • Impulsive behavior that often takes dangerous forms
  • A self-image that doesn’t remain fixed or stable
  • Episodes of extreme, misplaced anger 

People affected by the disorder may also commit acts of self-harm or attempt suicide. These issues can occur in people dealing with depression or other mental health conditions. However, they’re a central diagnostic feature of BPD. This fact helps explain why up to 80% of all those impacted by the illness will try to kill themselves. It also explains why BPD creates a drastically elevated risk for suicide-related death.

BPD and Problems with Drugs or Alcohol

Despite their physical effects on you, substance abuse and addiction are essentially mental/emotional conditions. In fact, together they form a category of mental illness called substance use disorder (SUD). Tens of millions of Americans experience at least one of the subtypes of this disorder each year. 

BPD is far less common than substance use disorder. Still, the two conditions are heavily linked. At least half of all people who develop BPD will also experience substance abuse and/or addiction. 

Even when it occurs alone, borderline personality disorder is often hard to address. The situation can grow even more serious when an SUD is also present. Why? A substance problem can accelerate some of the most severe effects of BPD, including:

  • Self-harm
  • Suicidal behavior
  • Other kinds of impulsive, dangerous behavior

At the same time, the presence of BPD can make your substance problems more intense. It can also:

  • Ramp up the difficulty of recovering from substance abuse/addiction
  • Make you more likely to relapse if you reach drug or alcohol sobriety

Relapse rates for people affected by both conditions can rise to as high as 90%. 

At Terra Nova, we use customized dual diagnosis programs to overcome these kinds of difficulties. The goal of this approach is supporting your BPD recovery as you take steps toward substance abstinence. Coordination of your overall plan helps you make strides in each of these areas.

Treatment Approaches

What Can Arizona Borderline Personality Disorder Treatment Do for You?

Professional support is a must for effective BPD recovery. Generally speaking, the goal of this recovery is easing the condition’s effects on you. Depending on your situation, this can mean either:

  • Eliminating a given symptom
  • Lessening symptom severity

Psychotherapy plays a big part in successful borderline personality disorder treatment. Your potential options for Terra Nova’s BPD therapy in Arizona include:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) 

DBT is a direct descendant of CBT. It was designed from the ground up as a treatment for borderline personality disorder. Both of these therapies help you understand your thoughts and emotions. They also help you gain improved emotional control and behave in ways that support your well-being. Crucially, they have the added advantage of decreasing your chances of harming yourself. Both CBT and DBT also serve as common therapy options for substance problems. This makes them prime options for treating dual diagnosis. 

Be aware that effective treatment for BPD can take time. Many people don’t respond right away, even when they receive the right kinds of help. At Terra Nova, your treatment team will continually assess the effectiveness of your care plan. They’ll also make any adjustments needed to fully support your recovery success.
