Our evidence-based delusional 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.

Delusional disorder is a rare mental illness where an individual experiences psychosis, where they cannot tell the difference between what is real and what is imagined. Those with this disorder are able to function in everyday life but close family and friends may dispute things that they believe to be true. Individuals suffering from delusional disorder may struggle with romantic relationships, have increased irritability, struggle with legal problems, have frequent anger towards others, and are susceptible to a substance use disorder. Those diagnosed with delusional disorder often have a hard time admitting their beliefs are wrong.

Although this is a chronic mental health condition patients with a commitment to treatment and long-term care will see that recovery is possible. By learning what effective treatment looks like and understanding the value of a long-term inpatient delusional disorder treatment center, you can help your loved one receive the care they need to work toward lasting recovery.

Delusional Disorder Treatment

Treating delusional disorder can be difficult as most individuals suffering with this disorder are functioning normally in everyday life and don’t see a problem with their beliefs or actions. The prognosis for this disorder differs depending on the person’s willingness to recognize the symptoms and agree to treatment.
