Understanding Personality Disorders

Personality disorders are a set of mental conditions. They share enduring patterns of behavior, inner experiences, and cognition significantly different from society’s or culture’s expectations. The patterns are pervasive and can lead to problems in social, personal and occupational functioning.

Typically, these disorders emerge in adolescence or early adulthood and affect every aspect of a person’s life.

The development of personality disorders is thought to be influenced by genetic, neurological and environmental factors.

Antisocial personality disorder often leads to symptoms and behaviors that can include:

  • Disregard for social norms, including laws and rules.
  • Chronic lying, deceit, and conning other people for personal gain.
  • Individuals with ASPD often make fast decisions without thinking about the consequences.
  • The personality disorder can lead to frequent involvement in assaults or physical fights.
  • A lack of concern for safety for oneself and others.
  • Persistent problems with sustaining consistent work behaviors or honoring financial obligations.
  • Indifference or rationalization of having hurt or mistreated other people.

As part of our mental health programs at Elevation Behavioral Health, we treat personality disorders.

Treatment Approach at Elevation Behavioral Health

Elevation Behavioral Health is an antisocial personality disorder treatment center. We recognize the need for a comprehensive and multifaceted approach to treatment. As such, we offer specialized programs integrating evidence-based therapies, holistic support and family involvement.

Psychological therapies that may be part of a treatment plan at our antisocial personality disorder treatment center include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: CBT helps recognize dysfunctional ways of thinking and behaving so they can be changed.
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy: DBT improves emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness and distress tolerance.
  • Motivational interviewing (MI): MI helps strengthen the client’s commitment and motivation to change. It is also an evidence-based therapy approach that addresses the underlying ambivalence someone may feel about engaging in treatment.

Holistic support approaches we use can include:

  • Mindfulness and meditation are used for self-awareness, emotional balance, and stress reduction.
  • Yoga and physical exercise contribute to emotional stability by improving physical health and well-being.
  • Nutritional counseling supports mental and physical health.

Our programs include:

  • Residential treatment is intensive and structured.
  • Outpatient programs that are flexible for continued support while managing daily responsibilities.
  • Transitional housing can bridge returning home and residential treatment to provide ongoing stability and support.

Antisocial personality disorder is a challenging condition to treat, requiring specialized care. At our luxury mental health treatment center, we are experienced and equipped to provide this care.

Treatment Programs at Elevation Behavioral Health

At our California antisocial personality disorder treatment center, we offer a continuum of care to meet individual needs. Our structured programs provide different levels of intensity and support to ensure clients receive appropriate care at every stage of their recovery journey.

Our residential treatment program is the highest care level. It’s an intensive program that’s designed for people who need comprehensive mental health treatment, addiction treatment or dual diagnosis treatment.

At our residential program, you receive care from a multidisciplinary team, including psychologists, therapists, psychiatrists and medical staff. The daily schedule is carefully planned, and it includes individual and group therapy sessions, holistic treatment modalities, and recreational activities.

Evidence-based therapies address specific mental health and substance use issues, and family therapy sessions can be part of treatment to rebuild relationships and provide a supportive space for healing and communication.

Our transitional housing program is a bridge between completing residential treatment and returning home. It’s a supportive living environment where clients continue receiving guidance and support in a stable environment.

Transitional housing for mental health in Los Angeles can help clients build a sense of peer support and continue practicing newly learned coping skills and stress reduction strategies.

Transitional housing helps foster a smooth return to a client’s home environment, reducing the risk of relapse and promoting long-term recovery.

Our outpatient mental health and dual diagnosis services are a crucial step down in the level of care following the completion of a residential program. Participation in our outpatient services ensures you receive needed support as you reintegrate into daily life.

Outpatient programs create a balance between intensive support and more independence.

Our outpatient services can include individual and group therapy, nutritional counseling, life skills and interpersonal skills training and dual diagnosis care. Holistic activities, medication monitoring, and management may also be part of an outpatient program, optimizing therapeutic outcomes.

We partner with you to provide compassion, resources and expertise as part of our trusted Los Angeles outpatient program.

One of our unique programs at Elevations Behavioral Health is our virtual intensive outpatient program. It delivers care in an online format that accommodates clients’ unique needs and schedules. The program lets clients engage in therapy from home.

The format ensures high-quality treatment is accessible to people who might otherwise face barriers to in-person sessions or feel more comfortable in their home environment.

Dual Diagnosis

Antisocial Personality Disorder and Addiction

Along with primary mental health services, at our antisocial personality disorder treatment center, we offer dual diagnosis care. 

Many people with personality disorders also struggle with substance abuse and addiction. Reasons for this include:

  • Impulsivity: Because people with ASPD often engage in impulsive behaviors and make decisions without weighing consequences, this can extend to substance use. Individuals might experiment with alcohol and drugs, not regarding the possible negative outcomes.
  • Thrill-seeking: Antisocial personality disorder and thrill-seeking often go hand-in-hand. This makes substance use especially appealing.
  • Self-medication: To deal with psychological distress, feelings of emptiness or boredom, individuals with ASPD might turn to substances. While drugs and alcohol can create temporary relief from uncomfortable emotions, they can also reinforce the cycle of addiction.
  • Social environment: It’s somewhat common for people with ASPD to associate with other people who participate in similar antisocial behaviors.
  • Neurological factors: Research indicates brain structure and function abnormalities, especially in areas related to impulse control, reward processing and emotional regulation, can be common in addiction and ASPD. Shared vulnerabilities make people with personality disorders more susceptible to substance use disorders.
  • Lack of coping skills: People with ASPD tend to lack healthy coping mechanisms, so substance use can be a strategy to manage stress.

Dual diagnosis treatment addresses both conditions simultaneously for lasting recovery. We offer dual-diagnosis residential care and other lower-intensity programs for integrated treatment.
