Dissociative Identity Disorders Treatment
Dissociative disorders are mental disorders that involve a disconnection and lack of continuity from reality that is involuntary. It affects thoughts, identity, consciousness, and memory and causes problems functioning in everyday life, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).
Dissociative disorders affect an estimated 2% of people living in the United States, according to NAMI, which also states that women are more likely than men to be diagnosed with the disorder.
There are three different types of dissociative disorders: dissociative identity disorder, formerly known as multiple personality disorder or split personality; dissociative amnesia; and depersonalization disorder. While each has some symptoms that set it apart from the others, all three are usually rooted in some form of trauma.
Treatment is available for you or someone you love who is experiencing any of the three dissociative disorders. The Phoenix Recovery Center is equipped to offer comprehensive treatment for dissociative disorders, including inpatient treatment for dissociate disorder, that involves a balance of pharmacological support and therapeutic practices supported by research that can help patients deal with the trauma they’ve previously experienced. Dissociative disorders are more likely to be diagnosed in an emergency or inpatient setting.
