Rehabilitation is effective for personality disorder patients especially when they are at risk of harming self or others.
Rehabilitation provides access to different professionals for regular appointments, engages patients in a regular routine that helps build emotional stability, engages patients in psycho-education, individual counselling, group therapy and family therapy, allows patients the room to engage in recreational activities, provides constant supervision and monitoring to keep the patients’ behaviours and symptoms in check and ensuring their safety, provides crisis intervention support by professionals when required, and provides a structured environment focused solely on recovery.
Rehabilitation facilities have programs of different durations. How long a patient with personality disorder is required to stay depends on the program-type as well as on the patient’s recovery rate.
