Is Personality Disorder Curable?
Good afternoon, I have a sister aged 23 years currently undergoing treatment and therapy with a psychiatrist with a diagnosis of personality disorder, said the doctor has two sides in him positive and negative when the negative side is more dominant. Doctors who treat sentencing can not recover , What is this disease can not be cured ??? Please answer doctor, thank you
Good afternoon Dhewie, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
In general, psychiatric disorders, including personality disorders basically occur due to certain genetic disorders or as a result of the failure of a person's psychological side in dealing with trauma or problems they experience.
This disorder itself in general can not be declared completely cured, because the disorder can reappear if exposed to the trigger again. This condition can generally only be controlled with medication, psychotherapy and also by avoiding the patient with a trigger for the onset of the disorder.
Therefore, the role of the family is very important in helping your sister undergo therapy and prevent recurring disorders during therapy and also after therapy. Try to find out the main triggers for the disorder to occur, and try to keep your sister from being exposed again. It is also advisable to continue to bring your sister to undergo therapy and control routinely in accordance with the doctor's instructions.
I hope this helps.
