Intensive Outpatient Program for Personality Disorders in Houston, TX
Personality disorders have been met with misunderstanding and stigma for decades. Roughly 10 percent of Americans will experience one or multiple personality disorders. Unfortunately, many of these people will choose not to get treatment because of the shame they feel over their diagnosis. At Petoskey Center, we provide specialized care that helps patients understand their diagnosis without reinforcing the shame and self-loathing that many people feel following a personality disorder diagnosis. We help patients understand that personality disorders are NOT indicative that a person is bad at their core or damaged goods. Instead, personality disorders are actually indicative of rigid, often ineffective coping strategies that end up causing patients difficulty when trying to negotiate their relationships and responsibilities of daily life.
Treatment for personality disorders is about understanding these strategies and helping patients begin to shift toward more healthy and effective strategies. Our program can be particularly helpful for patients struggling with Borderline, Histrionic, Narcissistic, Avoidant, Dependent, and Obsessive-Compulsive traits or disorders.
We welcome patients from across the Greater Houston area, including but not limited to Richmond, Sugarland, Bellaire, Katy, Pearland, The Woodlands, Conroe, and League City.
Personality Disorder Treatment Programs
Our Intensive outpatient program (IOP) can be very helpful for people struggling with personality disorders. Our program is designed to provide our patients with the structure and support they need to do the necessary work to find some relief from their personality disorder symptoms.
By design, intensive outpatient programs ask patients to make a commitment to their recovery by showing up for frequent sessions. Our IOP also asks for active participation in our safe space. We educate patients on the importance of being honest with themselves about their thoughts and feelings, and we work hard to create a forum where people can address their maladaptive behaviors.
Our intensive outpatient program for personality disorders provides structure with a combination of individual and group sessions, which allows patients to zero in on personal goals while also having the opportunity to learn from and engage with peers struggling with similar issues.
Personality disorders and other mental health conditions often share comorbidity. At Petoskey Center, our intensive outpatient program also helps people struggling with: ●Depression ●Trauma ●Anxiety
