a person in a personality disorder treatment program talks to a therapistPersonality disorders encompass various mental health concerns that affect how a person behaves, thinks, and feels. Substance use disorders can co-occur with personality disorders, but both conditions can improve with New Jersey dual diagnosis treatment at BlueCrest Recovery. 

The inflexible thoughts, feelings, and behaviors associated with personality disorders can cause tremendous distress for individuals and those around them. Dual diagnosis treatment can help address troublesome symptoms and teach clients coping skills that do not involve substance use.

The Different Types of Personality Disorders 

The various personality disorders are grouped into three different clusters: A, B, or C: 

Cluster A 

An individual with a cluster A personality disorder shows behavior patterns that seem eccentric or odd to others. They often have difficulty relating to others and might be described as living in “their own world.”  

Cluster A includes schizotypal personality disorder, schizoid personality disorder, and paranoid personality disorder. 

Cluster B 

A person with a cluster B personality disorder has difficulty regulating their emotions and feelings. They can also struggle to regulate their reactions to situations and people. These individuals can display dramatic, unpredictable, or intensely emotional responses to everyday occurrences. 

Cluster B personality disorders include borderline personality disorder, histrionic personality disorder, antisocial personality disorder, and narcissistic personality disorder. 

Cluster C  

Individuals with a cluster C personality disorder struggle with overwhelming, chronic, persistent anxiety and fear. They display behavior that is considered by others to be withdrawn and antisocial. 

Disorders within the cluster C category include obsessive-compulsive personality disorder, avoidant personality disorder, and dependent personality disorder.  

Symptoms of a Personality Disorder 

Since there are several types of personality disorders, there are also many symptoms an individual can have. Some of the most common symptoms that can be treated by our personality disorder therapy program in New Jersey include the following: 

  • Social isolation 
  • Depression 
  • Aggressive or violent behavior 
  • Impaired self-image 
  • Substance use 
  • Chronic anxiety 
  • Risky or impulsive behavior 
  • Self-destructive behavior 
  • Difficulty holding a job 
  • Difficulty with school 
  • Difficulty forming and keeping relationships 

Every person is unique and displays a unique set of symptoms for various personality disorders. However, clients and their loved ones can enjoy happier, healthier lives with comprehensive treatment. 

How Can Our Personality Disorder Treatment Program in New Jersey Help? 

Just as there is no single set of symptoms that every individual experiences with a personality disorder, there is also no one-size-fits-all treatment method. However, several types of evidence-based treatment, including dual diagnosis treatment, are available, creating a holistic approach to helping BlueCrest Recovery clients live happier lives. 

Depending on a client’s needs and their diagnosis, they may be enrolled in a personality disorder treatment program through a partial hospitalization program (PHP), an intensive outpatient program (IOP), or an outpatient program.  

Intervention services, aftercare services, and alumni services are available as part of a lifelong journey to reach and maintain sobriety and recovery. 

Three of the most effective treatments used in our personality disorder therapy program in New Jersey include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and medication-assisted treatment (MAT).  

Individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, self-help groups, and lifestyle changes are all positive approaches to treatment for personality disorders and substance use disorders. 

Getting Help Through a Personality Disorder Treatment Program at BlueCrest Recovery 

There are ten distinct personality disorders, many of which often co-exist with a substance use disorder. Every client deserves a personalized treatment plan outlining the path to recovery using treatment modalities and therapies that will yield the best chances of recovery success.  

If you or a loved one needs help reclaiming their life from a personality disorder or substance use disorder, help is available from BlueCrest Recovery by calling 888.292.9652
