Personality Disorders

These disorders belong to a group of conditions which frequently benefit from treatment. The treatment approaches vary among the different personality disorders and can include psychiatric interventions coupled with psychotherapy to provide much needed help.

People with one of these disorders frequently have confusion and anxiety from the symptoms of the condition; i.e. getting stuck on a thought you just can’t seem to get out of your head, or in other cases hearing voices of people who are not there or voices that may tell you to do things. These symptoms can make you feel confused and withdrawn.

While you may not have heard of them referred to as personality disorders, you will probably recognize some of the names. These include Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Narcissistic, Borderline, Schizophrenic or Histrionic Personality Disorders.

The good news is that treatment methods can reduce or potentially eliminate some symptoms. In most case,s there is a psychotherapy/counseling component as part of the overall treatment of these conditions to achieve the best outcome.
