If I am recommended to do DBT, does this mean I have BPD?
Many people come to our treatment with a variety of symptoms. We treat people with anxiety, depression, bi-polar disorder, trauma, substance abuse and eating disorders, as well as those with borderline personality disorder.
If you do fit the criteria for BPD (5 of the 9 criteria must be met to have the diagnosis), understand that many people who participate leave treatment with fewer than the five criteria. To achieve this this means working really hard, learning the skills, and integrating them into your daily life for this to happen.
