Personality Disorder Treatment
How We Treat Depression at 10 Acre Ranch.
For many men, personality disorders and addiction often go hand in hand. A personality disorder is a type of mental disorder that causes a person to have rigid and unhealthy patterns of thinking, functioning, and behaving. Often, men with personality disorders can have difficulty perceiving and relating to situations and people – and this causes significant stress on relationships, social activities, work, and school. In addition, men with personality disorders often suffer from depression and anxiety, which can lead to self-medicating and the eventual abuse of alcohol and drugs. In fact, substance use disorder is diagnosed in roughly half of individuals with personality disorder.
While the exact cause of personality disorders is unknown, both family history and life events and relationships play a role. For example, people with a history of abuse, trauma, neglect, or being bullied have an increased risk of having a personality disorder.
