Paranoid Personality Disorder Treatment In NYC
Paranoid Personality Disorder
Paranoid Personality Disorder is characterized by the following: feeling distrust of others, believing that others are out to harm you in some way, an unwillingness to confide in others for fear that they will retaliate, the belief that others are attacking you, being angry or hostile towards others, holding grudges, or finally, being suspicious that a partner is not being faithful.
A person may experience a combination of these feelings. Experiencing this disorder may be caused by a combination of genetic makeup and environment such as where you grew up, any events you experienced, and your relationships with others.
You may be at risk for this disorder if there is a family history of personality disorders or mental health issues, you grew up in an environment where you experienced trauma, or you experienced a conduct disorder as a young person.
Treatment for this personality disorder could include accessing a treatment team with a Psychiatrist, Psychologist or therapist, Pharmacist, and Social Worker. Accessing therapy to learn about how to regulate feelings, moods, and behaviors is necessary as well as developing strategies for coping. While medications are not specifically tailored to this disorder, it is not uncommon to also experience depression, anxiety, or other disorders.
Medications such as antidepressants, mood stabilizers, anti-anxiety and antipsychotic medications may likely help improve one’s life.
