Addicted patients with personality disorders: Traits, schemas, and presenting problems
Psychology | Social and Behavioral Sciences
We evaluated the association of Structure Clinical Interview for the
DSM-IV Axis II (SCID-II) severity and personality traits, early maladaptive
schemas, and presenting symptoms in 41 methadone-maintained
patients meeting criteria for either antisocial, borderline, avoidant, or
depressive personality disorder. Correlational analyses indicated that
the severity of each personality disorder was associated with a unique
profile of presenting problems and underlying traits and schemas. The
evaluation of multiple psychological indicators appears to be a useful
method for case conceptualization and planning interventions within a
promising individual therapy model that focuses both on substance
abuse and psychiatric symptoms and maladaptive schemas and coping
