Mental health professionals started recognizing personality disorders, particularly borderline personality disorder, during the 1980s. At first, the disorder seemed to relate to a combination of psychosis and neurosis. However, as time move forward and more research had been done, there were other behaviors associated with this disorder.

If you have a personality disorder, let our team here at Riverwalk Recovery Center in Chattanooga, TN, give you the treatment you need to manage the symptoms and overcome underlying issues of the disorder.

Defining Personality Disorders

There is not just one generalized definition of a personality disorder. The reason for this is because there are 3 different clusters of personality disorders. However, there are some basic symptoms that people with this type of disorder may display. These include emotional, dramatic and erratic actions. Some people with a personality disorder act out impulsively, too. Basically, personality disorders cause someone’s personality to be out-of-the-norm.

Causes of a Personality Disorder

Experts don’t always know what causes mental health disorders. However, they do have some idea what might cause personality disorders. Some of the causes may include:

  • Family life when growing up
  • Genetics
  • Many social elements
  • Environment
  • Trauma
  • Addiction to drugs or alcohol

No matter what the cause of the personality disorder might be, having trouble in relationships can take a toll on anyone. If you are struggling to manage the personality disorder, reach out to us today to start treatment.
