Dissociative amnesia is a type of dissociative disorder that causes a disconnection from reality, specifically a loss of memories that can be short term or persist. The cause of the memory loss is usually due to a traumatic experience, where the memory loss is an involuntary way of coping with the trauma.
An individual with dissociative amnesia may be unable to remember a period of time, specific events or parts of those events, a person, or in some rare cases they may not remember their entire past and identity. The memory loss can last for minutes, hours, weeks, months, and in very rare cases the loss can last for years. There is hope for recovery with treatment.
By learning what effective treatment looks like and understanding the value of a long-term inpatient dissociative amnesia disorder treatment center, you can help your loved one receive the care they need to work toward lasting recovery.
Dissociative Amnesia Treatment
Residential treatment is the best option for your loved one suffering from dissociative amnesia. This may be especially helpful if there is a co-occurring mental health or substance use disorder. Treatment will help your loved one recover their lost memories and learn how to cope with the trauma that brought on dissociative amnesia. The time needed for treatment varies from one individual to another, their memories may come back quickly or slowly over a long period of time. In very rare cases an individual may never have their memories restored but treatment can help improve everyday function.

Dissociative Amnesia Treatment Options
In order for your loved one to rediscover their memories, they must deal with their past trauma and learn coping mechanisms in therapy. There are no approved medications for treating dissociative amnesia. Therapy will also help your loved one regain their memories and restore normal everyday functioning.
- Residential Treatment. Sending your loved one to inpatient treatment for dissociative amnesia will provide them with a well-rounded recovery treatment plan. A mental health rehab center will give your loved one the therapy, support, and tools needed for after treatment.
- Therapy. As the main form of treatment, there are a few therapies for treating dissociative amnesia; cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). Creative therapies like art or music are also used to help patients open up and explore their emotions and memories.
