In brief: It can last forever.
Reactive attachment process is a neurological disruption in social and self regulation created by poor infant nurturing.
Individual and family therapy can help. Medications can help. However, it is not an easy thing to repair and often takes years to improve. Having healthy relationships during the rest of child and adult development will help a lot but is often not enough.

In brief: Some
By definition rad is a disorder of the template learned in infancy for all other relationships.
Individuals do develop different attachment relationships with different people. Adequate treatment requires persistance and commitment, consideration of an energy approach might be indicated as well.
