Drugs are not very effective for Borderline Personality Disorder
. He needs a therapist who works for this very difficult to cure disorder. I will list some therapists who can help. I also recommend the following book:
Stop Walking on Eggshells: Taking Your Life Back When Someone You Care About Has Borderline Personality Disorder

I would like you to be familiar with the Florida Borderline Personality Disorder Association.
Check out their resource page:

There is much information to absorb contained above. Lifeskills comes highly recommended and is a beautiful facility with a very large and professional staff.
My best wishes for your boyfriend's recovery.
