DBT is an integration of cognitive-behavioral techniques and
mindfulness skills that is powerful with people who have mood,
depression, anxiety, addictive, impulse control and personality
disorders. It is a research base treatment that helps identify the
relationship between thoughts, feelings and behaviors and their
impact on life situations.
DBT balances validation of an individual’s experience with the
development of skills to manage crises, regulate emotions, and
enhance motivation to change. The program entails group therapy,
individual therapy 1 time per week, urinalysis screenings, case
management, medication services, and implementation of after
care for additional support.
