What Is Borderline Personality Disorder?

BPD is a mental health disorder with unstable moods, a distorted self-image, and persistent problems with developing stable relationships. Experiencing intense emotional swings, impulsive behaviors, and difficulties regulating emotions are common with BPD. Without proper treatment, this condition can significantly impact daily functioning.

Signs and Symptoms of BPD:

  • Intense fear of abandonment: Individuals with BPD often have a fear of abandonment and being rejected. They often react extremely when they perceive they might be rejected or abandoned. 
  • Unstable relationships: Maintaining stable relationships is often difficult for people with BPD since they have a difficult time with how they perceive themselves and others.
  • Identity issues: A distorted sense of self-identity is often accompanied by feelings of emptiness.
  • Impulsivity: People with BPD tend to engage in risky behaviors such as substance use, gambling, reckless driving, unsafe sex, and binge eating as unhealthy coping mechanisms to attempt to bring relief from symptoms.
  • Emotional instability: Frequent and intense mood swings lasting hours or days are common with BPD. They can occur from elevated stress levels or unexpectedly.

Dangers Associated with BPD:

  • Thoughts of self-harm and suicide: Individuals living with BPD may engage in self-harming behaviors, have suicidal thoughts, or even make suicidal attempts. 
  • Substance use disorders: People diagnosed with BDP are at an increased risk of developing co-occurring substance use disorders. Drugs and alcohol serve as an unhealthy means to deal with intense emotions and impulsivity.
  • Problems with daily routines and responsibilities: BPD symptoms can make it difficult to maintain a job, attend school, or manage other daily responsibilities.

Types of Treatment for BPD in Los Angeles

The types of treatment for BPD in Los Angeles provide a wide range of options to fit one’s needs and treatment objectives based on their diagnosis and the severity of their condition. Some of the available options include: 

  • Inpatient Treatment: Inpatient programs provide intensive, 24/7 care within our residential facility. This type of program is suitable for individuals who require a highly structured and supervised environment due to severe symptoms or concerns of self-harm.
  • Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP): Our PHP offers intensive and structured therapy during the day with the flexibility to return home in the evenings. It is well-suited for people transitioning from inpatient treatment or for those who do not require 24/7 care.
  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP): Our IOP is for individuals who need regular therapeutic services and support several times a week but do not need more structured care like PHPs and inpatient treatment. IOPs offer more flexibility than PHPs to accommodate personal obligations.
  • Outpatient Services: Our outpatient services offer individual therapy, group therapy, medication management, and other supportive services on an ongoing basis. This enables individuals to continue receiving the care they need while maintaining regular routines.
  • Veteran’s Program: Our Veteran’s programs are specifically tailored for veterans suffering from BPD and offer options for inpatient, PHP, IOP, and outpatient services.

Therapy for BPD in Los Angeles

Several types of therapy for BPD in Los Angeles help individuals develop healthier coping strategies, regulate emotions, improve interpersonal relationships, and foster overall emotional well-being, including:

  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): DBT focuses on teaching mindfulness skills for emotion regulation, distress tolerance techniques, interpersonal effectiveness, and self-management strategies.
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT): CBT helps individuals identify and challenge negative thought patterns or beliefs contributing to their emotional distress. It helps replace these thoughts and behaviors with more positive ones.
  • Schema-Focused Therapy: This therapy involves identifying deep-seated core beliefs or schemas contributing to a person’s difficulties in managing relationships or regulating emotions to develop healthier ways of relating to themselves and others.
  • Mentalization-Based Therapy (MBT): MBT helps improve an individual’s ability to understand their own thoughts and feelings and the mental states of others to improve social skills through reflective thinking.
  • Psychodynamic Therapy: This therapeutic approach explores unconscious processes that influence behavior to gain insight into early life experiences contributing to current BPD difficulties.
  • Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT): CAT combines elements of CBT and psychodynamic therapy to promote self-awareness, understand behavior patterns, and develop more effective coping strategies.
  • Group Therapy: Group therapy provides a supportive environment for individuals with BPD to connect with others who share similar experiences. It offers the opportunity to learn from peers, practice interpersonal skills, receive feedback, and gain a sense of belonging.
  • Family Therapy: Family therapy is essential to help improve communication, resolve conflicts, repair damaged relationships, and educate family members about BPD so they can provide a supportive environment at home while maintaining healthy boundaries. 
  • Transference-Focused Psychotherapy (TFP): TFP explores how previous relationships impact current relationships by examining how transference from previous to existing relationships affects them.
  • Holistic Therapies: Holistic therapies help individuals learn mindfulness, stress relief, and healthier living practices to promote improved mental and physical well-being and emotional regulation skills.
