Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a severe and difficult-to-treat mental health condition that affects approximately 1% of the U.S. population. BPD is marked by emotion dysregulation, intense fear of abandonment, impulsive behavior, self-harm, and tumultuous interpersonal relationships. If someone you love is struggling with borderline personality disorder, it is likely that they have suffered trauma as well. Trauma-informed care is an essential part of BPD treatment.

Personality disorders interfere with an individual’s quality of life. They also bear heavily on the emotions of those individuals’ friends and family members. There are many reasons why someone may develop a borderline personality disorder. The goal of any quality personality disorder treatment is to understand the factors causing the disorder and the right combination of therapies to manage the symptoms.
What Is Borderline Personality Disorder?
A borderline personality disorder is a mental health condition marked by ongoing patterns of varying behaviors, moods, and self-image. Those with this condition often have problems within their relationships and controlling their impulsiveness. People with borderline personality disorder may also experience intense bouts of depression, anger, and anxiety, lasting anywhere between a few hours to a few days. Other symptoms may include:
- Avoiding abandonment, whether real or imagined, by cutting out people they care for or quickly initiating close relationships
- Swinging between extreme intimacy with friends and family to fierce anger or dislike
- Exhibiting impulsive and dangerous behaviors, such as reckless driving, binge eating, substance use, or unsafe sex
- Intense and highly changeable mood swings that last for variable periods
- Feelings of emptiness
- Difficulty trusting other people and fearing other people’s intentions
These symptoms can be quite overwhelming, especially when someone feels like they have to manage them alone. However, it is possible to manage this mental health condition with treatment and time, allowing the individual to live a normal, healthy life.
What to Expect in a Borderline Personality Disorder Treatment Program
A medical professional will first conduct a physical examination to check if a physical illness is responsible for the symptoms. If it is inconclusive, you will meet with our therapist and begin your healing journey. Therapy can take many forms, from individual therapy to group therapy and trauma therapy.
Our borderline personality disorder program gives you the opportunity to stay close to your home base. You don’t have to arrange for the expenses that you’re bound to incur at an out-of-state facility.
Most importantly, Crestview Recovery makes the recovery process enjoyable for you by offering outdoor therapy activities such as skiing, snowboarding, and whitewater rafting. We complement evidence-based care with nature therapy, which triggers changes in the brain and helps calm your emotions. You can then self-reflect on your behavior and take stock of your life without judgment.
After borderline personality disorder treatment at our facility, you will:
- Learn to live a more independent life.
- Give up unhealthy relationships.
- Behave assertively and confidently.
- Pick up self-management skills to manage anxiety, fear, and nervousness when you return to your regular life.
- Take criticism in your stride and focus on what is important.
- Accept past and present circumstances.
- Design the life you really want to lead.
