Dissociative Identity Disorder
What is Dissociative Identity Disorder?
Dissociative disorders are mental disorders that involve experiencing a division and lack of continuity between thoughts, memories, surroundings, actions and identity. People with dissociative disorders elude reality in ways that are involuntary and cause problems with functioning in everyday life.
Dissociative disorders usually develop as a reaction to trauma and help keep difficult memories at bay. Symptoms, ranging from amnesia to multiple alternate identities, depend in part on the type of dissociative disorder you have. Times of anxiety can temporarily worsen symptoms, making them more visible. Substance Abuse, like Alcohol Addiction, Benzodiazepine Addiction, and Prescription Drug Abuse, also triggers symptoms.
Treatment for dissociative disorders includes one on one therapy and appropriate medications. Although treating dissociative disorders can be difficult, many Veterans learn new ways of coping and lead healthy, productive lives. Our Veterans Rehab and Detox Centers offer specialized treatment programs for those struggling. Through medication management, mindfulness, and therapy, we use evidence-based strategies to help Veterans succeed.

Therapy for Dissociative Identity Disorder
Therapy is the primary treatment for dissociative disorders. This form of therapy involves talking about your disorder and related issues with a mental health professional. Our treatment center’s therapists have advanced training or experience in working with people who have experienced trauma. Trauma is typically one of leading causes of Dissociative Identity Disorder.
As a VA Community Care Network provider, our therapists will help Veterans understand the cause of their condition and to form new ways of coping with stressful circumstances. Through EMDR therapy for PTSD, our Veterans treatment centers help you talk more about the trauma you experienced.
