Elements of a Successful Recovery

Just as it is important to understand that not everything that looks like a recovery is a real recovery, it is equally important to understand that not all attempts at recovery are false.

It is a commonly held myth that nobody ever recovers from personality disorders.

People do.

There are many who do commit themselves to recovery, make a genuine effort to stumble and fight for themselves first - and for their loved ones second. You will find many such people in recovery groups. 

Most successful recoveries for a person who suffers from a personality disorder exhibit some degree of the following components.

  1. Acknowledging the Problem
  2. Longevity
  3. Self-Work
  4. Yielding Control
  5. Medications
  6. Therapy
