Get Personalized Treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder
Seeking treatment is one of the most important steps you or a loved one can take on the journey to recovery from a Borderline Personality Disorder. At Lifeskills South Florida, we know how serious and complex a Borderline Personality Disorder and other mental disorders can be and the social, emotional, and physical challenges they can pose.
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, about 1.6 percent of U.S. adults are diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder, but it could be as high as 5.9 percent. Fortunately, Borderline Personality Disorder can be successfully treated, and in fact, recent research shows that the prognosis over time is much better than previously assumed but treatment must be long-term within a consistent, empathetic but firm therapeutic frame.
Continuum of Care
Lifeskills comprehensive therapeutic clinical track focuses on long-term recovery for the individual and the family. We offer evidence-based treatment modalities, such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), to treat Borderline Personality Disorder. Our 13-week DBT skills training program uses a combination of psychotherapy techniques, education, and individual and group psychotherapy to support the patient’s progress. In addition to DBT, we offer core modalities that include gender-specific trauma, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and cognitive remediation. Lifeskills treatment program promotes re-integration into life beyond treatment through therapeutic structured outings that include shopping trips, recreational activities and cultural activities within the community.
As clients work through recovery towards independence, we support them through a continuum of care that includes:
Residential Treatment ProgramOur residential treatment program offers hope, healing, and a healthy lifestyle for all residents. Clients live in fully furnished townhomes that are professionally staffed 24 hours a day. This realistic, home-like setting allows residents to adapt their new coping skills within the local community and to daily routines while taking part in the therapeutic process.
Partial Hospitalization Treatment (PHP)Our Outpatient Center offers clients a Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), which is an intensive 5-day a week treatment program, consisting of highly structured, evidence-based therapy during the day. PHP provides clients autonomy in a safe environment to practice recovery skills in real-life situations.
Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP)The Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a step-down level of treatment from the residential treatment program or partial hospitalization program. IOP is designed to help support the recovery progress and help clients receive supportive services with ease with 10 hours of treatment per week.
