inpatient therapy is a very beneficial tool. especially if it is in regards to certain dx and program. i did a 6 month inpatient psycho-social rehabilitation program in 04. this programs focus is to aid in the development and treatment of those with a dx of severe borderline personality disorder. some inpatient programs are not dx specific. i have done these, and as you are around others it definately aides in your treatment and development. 28 hospitalisations, over 7 years of psychiatric therapy, one 6 month inpatient treatment program, 6 courses of ECT- public case-mangement and psych-social program for 1 year. hope this helps. with compassion,
dx, mdd, severe borderline personality disorder
