Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD)
Borderline Personality Disorder, or BPD for short, is a condition that makes it hard for people to manage their emotions.
Many people with BPD have intense moods and struggle to control their anger, anxiety, or sadness. Some people self-injure, think about killing themselves, or have a history of suicide attempts. Often, individuals with BPD have trouble forming satisfying relationships, and struggle with trusting others. Many struggle with fears of abandonment and emptiness.
Borderline personality disorder can look very different in different people. What seems to be at the core of BPD is a deficit of emotion regulation. This means people with BPD react differently to their emotions, because of their biology and their unique experiences. Emotions are more intense, uncomfortable, and last longer. Thankfully, emotion regulation can be learned.
At FRTC, we use a therapy called Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). In DBT, clients learn skills to improve their emotion regulation, so they can be happier, lead more fulfilling lives, and be more effective in their personal relationships.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy is the best treatment for persons with BPD. It is also effective for many other issues, including depression, self-injury, eating disorders, substance abuse, PTSD, and other issues related to intense emotions.
At Front Range Treatment Center, we offer a comprehensive DBT program. This means we run the program the way it was designed, with: weekly individual therapy, DBT skills groups, 24/7 available phone coaching, and intensive therapist-to-therapist consultation. Our psychologists and social workers are intensively trained in DBT by the people who created it, and receive ongoing training in DBT and BPD.
We also work with people who are close to someone who is suffering from BPD, such as parents, spouses, and children.

Anxiety is a normal part of life, but for some people excessive anxiety is a daily source of distress. Some people find themselves constantly worried or tense. Other people have panic attacks- short periods of powerful fear that may be trigged, or may occur out of the blue. Some people feel excessively anxious around other people. Others become fearful of specific things, such as dogs, needles, or flying in an airplane. These anxiety disorders are very common, and often highly treatable.
At FRTC, we use CBT techniques to address issues of anxiety. Our trained CBT therapists stay current on the latest research, to be sure you're getting the best care possible. Contact us today to learn how our trained psychologists and social workers can help you reach your goals, or learn more about anxiety disorders and anxiety treatment.
Some people experience depression as a persistent sadness, while others experience a severe depression that comes and goes. Sometimes depression is situational, such as depression that occurs after pregnancy, during the winter, or after the death of a loved one. Some people struggle with bipolar disorder, a serious mental illness characterized by alternating periods of depression and mania.
Mood disorders can be very unpleasant, but they are often highly treatable. Our dedicated, compassionate, and highly trained psychologists are committed to providing the highest level of care.

Trauma and PTSD
Traumatic events are powerful, negative events that affect a person deeply. Trauma can have a large impact on our future life satisfaction. Examples of traumatic events include war, interpersonal violence, crime, child abuse, accidents, and natural disasters. In some cases, persons may re-experience the traumatic events in the form of flashbacks, nightmares, or intrusive thoughts. In the case of violence or abuse, trauma often damages our ability to have healthy relationships. The effects of such intense experiences may fade with time, but often leaves lasting damage that can affect a persons life deeply unless they seek treatment.
PTSD stands for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. PTSD is a disorder that sometimes arises in persons who have been exposed to an intense traumatic event. People with PTSD avoid things that remind them of their traumatic experience, and they often "re-experience" past trauma through intrusive thoughts, flashbacks, or nightmares.
For patients in our DBT program, we offer DBT-PE. DBT-PE combines Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) with Prolonged Exposure (PE), one of the best PTSD treatments.
