Avoidant Personality Disorder Treatment

BrightQuest Treatment Centers provide world-class residential treatment for avoidant personality disorder and other complex mental illnesses. Our unique therapeutic approach and expert staff ensure your loved one receives treatment and support they need for lasting change. Our evidence-based avoidant personality disorder treatments, including residential care and therapy, offer the intensity and duration necessary to go beyond immediate stabilization to help our clients attain greater independence.

Individuals with avoidant personality disorder (AVPD) have a hard time with social interactions and experience severe anxiety, fear, and discomfort in social situations. Their lack of confidence and low self-esteem can actually hinder the natural development of their social skills.

This personality disorder is caused by a combination of genetic components and environmental factors, including traumatic events, exposure to childhood abuse and neglect, rejection or bullying at early ages, or personality and temperament.

Treatment for avoidant personality disorder can be challenging. By learning what effective treatment looks like and understanding the value of a long-term inpatient avoidant personality disorder treatment center, you can help your loved one receive the tailored, individualized care they need to work toward lasting recovery.

Avoidant Personality Disorder Treatment

Avoidant personality disorder can be extremely debilitating so making sure your loved one is prescribed the best treatment plan is crucial. Residential treatment is the best place for your loved one to receive treatment, where the environment is safe, supportive, and designed for recovery. Patients will start in individual therapy and work up the confidence to join group therapy sessions. Family therapy is also important for family members to know how to support their loved ones.

At our BrightQuest locations in San Diego and Nashville, our unique avoidant personality disorder therapeutic model and structure of long-term residential care ensure that your loved one will receive the support necessary for healing and recovery. With the guidance of our clinical team, their peers, and your family involvement, your loved one will work through underlying issues, gain strength, build confidence, regain control of their life, and work toward greater independence.

Inpatient Treatment for Avoidant Personality Disorder

When treatment takes place in a residential setting individuals can focus on their treatment as the stresses and anxiety of normal life are taken out of the picture. During treatment, patients will also receive social skills training to help in managing anxiety in social settings as well as learn and practice more effective communication techniques. A comprehensive treatment plan in inpatient rehab will often include alternative and holistic therapies like yoga, meditation, biofeedback, and massage therapy.
