Do You Have Difficulty Managing Extreme Emotions in Stressful Situations?
There’s a common misconception that people with personality disorders, like borderline personality disorder or narcissistic personality disorder, will never experience relief from their symptoms – that simply isn’t true.
Our Evidence-Based Approach to Treating Personality Disorders
Our care heavily focuses on both psychodynamic psychotherapy and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) – approaches that are proven to be effective in helping people suffering from personality disorders find a path forward.
We help residents learn and implement the specific skills they need to manage difficult emotions and not act on them in unhealthy, or even dangerous, ways.
Personality disorders impact people from all walks of life – at The Retreat, we specialize in helping those who have not seen satisfactory results from traditional therapeutic programs thrive.
Our DBT offerings are delivered by providers who have received extensive training and have deep experience in DBT.
The Retreat is staffed by highly trained clinicians around-the-clock.
38 hours of group therapy programming is offered every week at The Retreat.
Personality disorders can be complex diagnoses - we equip residents and their families with the knowledge and skills they need for after discharge.
This therapeutic modality has been shown to be effective for both borderline personality disorder and narcissistic personality disorder.
This is an evidence-based approach that is rooted in developmental research.

And, all of our residential offerings extend to residents of Ruxton House and to those who work with us on an outpatient basis, meaning that clients of The Retreat can continue receiving effective, evidence-based treatment once they’ve moved on from residential care.
