Adult clients with a primary mood, thought or anxiety disorder and a co-occurring borderline personality disorder (BPD) often are admitted to our residential dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) program.By definition, you cannot be diagnosed with borderline personality disorder until you are an adult.
