Our clients participate in multiple forms of therapy at The Ranch’s personality disorder treatment center, including process groups focused on personality disorders, individual sessions and family therapy. The wide variety of therapeutic options helps clients better understand and manage their disorder(s). Clients meet with their therapist regularly to get the individual attention they need to begin the healing process.
Personality disorder inpatient treatment allows clients with a personality disorder to take a step back from daily life and focus on their recovery in a safe and supportive environment. While in treatment, clients learn about their disorder and develop skills to manage their symptoms and achieve their goals.
Our outpatient program helps clients manage the transition from personality disorder treatment back into their day-to-day lives while still receiving the support of their therapist and treatment team. Through outpatient care, clients are able to more easily reintegrate into their lives without slipping back into problematic behaviors.
Treatment is the first step toward successfully managing a personality disorder. After treatment, we encourage clients to participate in continuing care so they can continue honing the skills to manage their disorder.
