Healing from Co-Occurring Borderline Personality Disorder and Alcoholism is Possible with Professional Support
Borderline personality disorder (BPD) can be a tough diagnosis to have for people who struggle with the symptoms. They often turn to drugs or alcohol as a means of coping. People with BPD have a perceived rejection or failure that triggers lasting states of depression, anger, or anxiety. They may be difficult to be around, especially if they struggle with addiction on top of this mental health disorder. It is difficult to notice this in the self or a loved one. The best way to cope is to find support from professionals who understand and can offer guidance on living with the diagnosis and working to become stronger every day.
