How can she come back when the doors are closed?
My very loved granddaughter with BPD has been on the streets for over a month. She is actively paranoid and full of delusions. She can't come home because she's dangerous to her families. She won't stay in the hospital because protocol requires that she be self admit, and she keeps letting herself out.
I am barely able to keep contact with her, but I keep looking for ways that she might eventually be well enough to return. Every door I find for her ends up closed, almost right away. Even civil commitment is a closed door due to personal rights.
I, and my family, are practicing the current psychological protocols for this situation. Which is to let her burn. (If I may let my feelings show 🙄).
If we could keep her in the hospital long enough to stabilize, we might be able to work with the BPD with some success and get her into a DBT residential treatment program. But that's not going to happen.
So here's my questions.
What hope can I cling to?
Is it even possible for delusions in paranoia to subside on their own?
How do I keep a door or doors open for her?
