For people with narcissistic personality disorder, the first—and perhaps hardest—step is recognizing and admitting that help is needed. Doing so may feel like a confession of imperfection, but it is not. It is a crucial first step in accepting the situation and beginning the healing process.
At our mental health center, we recognize that this and other inherent treatment difficulties present unique challenges to treating NPD. As such, our clinicians are highly trained and prepared to handle any potential complications, including veterans who feel angry, dismissive or humiliated when their exaggerated self-image is questioned.
To aid the recovery process, our inpatient program is small and intimate, allowing veterans to identify with others, practice healthy social interactions and develop greater empathy in an environment that is understanding and non-judgmental. Similarly, the clinicians at our psychiatric facility provide veterans with treatment plans that are as comprehensive as they are personalized.
During treatment, clinicians will help veterans learn to identify and disrupt damaging thoughts and behaviors and come to replace them with appropriate, healthy, and realistic attitudes and actions. With these new skills will come the ability for veterans to see themselves and others more realistically and develop loving, healthy relationships.
While our veterans make considerable and rapid improvements, a narcissistic personality disorder is often a long-term condition. Through years of experience, our mental health treatment center has learned how to provide the entire spectrum of care for our veterans.
From inpatient to outpatient, from transitional living to a long-term aftercare plan, our program has been designed to free our veterans from the clutches of narcissistic personality disorder.
