PREVI offers an individualized, integral and multidisciplinary treatment (psychological, psychiatric, family, socio-labour reinsertion treatment, etc.) for people who suffer from BPD and for their families.
Evaluation and treatment are approached from a bio-psycho-social perspective. This attentional structure makes it possible to simultaneously put into motion a large variety of human, technical and therapeutic resources.
We consider it necessary to have an integral intervention strategy that favours the continuity of the treatment. The duration of the BPD treatments is generally long and in some cases requires the use of different attentional facilities. The necessary therapeutic modality varies according to the severity of the disorder, as indicated by the American Psychiatric Association (APA).
In the less severe cases, individual outpatient therapy is used, combined with specific group therapy for the BPD and/or family psychotherapy. However, in cases with more severe symptomatology outpatient treatment is not sufficient, and treatment in the Day Clinic or Residential Unit (24h attention) is recommended and/or necessary.
One of the basic objectives is to provide patients with the least intrusive intervention possible, that is, favouring patients’ autonomy in the different areas of their lives as much as possible. For this reason, it is advisable for the stays to be as brief as possible, and when the state of the patient permits it, continue the treatment on an outpatient basis.
