Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

Originally developed to treat patients with borderline personality disorder and suicidal thoughts, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is now one of the most common therapy methods used to treat addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. The core ideas of DBT, including improved coping skills, communication skills, and self-image are essential to achieving recovery from addiction and mental illness. 

DBT is considered a form of CBT, however, it differs in that it focuses on accepting difficult feelings, thoughts, and behaviors as well as change. The word Dialectical itself means integrating opposites- finding a balance between accepting what is and what needs to change. A DBT session has a curriculum that includes mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotional regulation, and distress tolerance. It helps individuals recognize emotions, learn how to accept some of them as a part of their lives, and change the ones that lead to negative behaviors.
