In brief: Personality disorder

That would be best to ask a doctor or psychiatrist who is prescribing haldol--a discussion of what the Haldol (haloperidol) is being used to treat would be very educational, if one doesn't know already.
Personality disorders can be treated with medication if indicated by a doctor. However, personality disorders are long-standing, and aren't cured with medications.

In brief: Histrionic

Haldol (haloperidol) is a heavy tranquilizer, a first generation neuroleptic antipsychotic drug typically used for the psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia.
Intensive psychotherapy is best thought of as a way to treat histrionic, but not cure it. I would recommend psychoanalysis, with medication only as needed.
