In brief: Big question.
Depends on which personality disorder (pd), what treatment has been attempted, patient characteristics, etc.
A therapist would be helpful if you have specific questions.

In brief: Psychotherapy
Psychotherapy is the treatment of choice.
Some personality disorders are more treatable than others. Treatment is always long-term.
