DBT Treatment and Recovery Centre

Dialectical Behavior Therapy is based on a set of skills designed to help individuals with mental health issues work through difficult emotions and manage relationships. These skills can be beneficial for everyone, not only those struggling with mental health or addiction issues.

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a specific type of cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy developed in the late 1980s by psychologist Marsha M. Linehan to help better treat borderline personality disorder but is now being used to treat many, many other areas. Addiction is also one of them.  It will help you recognize positive strengths and attributes and encourage you, through Borderline Personality Disorder or addictions, to develop and use these. DBT is behavioral. The skills group and therapy sessions focus on teaching you to analyze problem behavior patterns and to replace destructive behavior with healthy and effective behavior.

Our DBT Treatment and Recovery Centre uses Emotion Regulation skills to help us change our emotions or situations. … When we experience really strong negative emotions, it’s easy to get caught up into the old pattern of using unhelpful and damaging coping strategies such as using substances, self-harming or unhealthy eating habits.

What you will learn at our DBT Treatment and Recovery Centre

Interpersonal effectiveness.

Distress tolerance/reality acceptance skills.

Emotion regulation.

Mindfulness skills.

Goals of DBT

DBT is targeted at clients with emotional vulnerability and poor ability to modulate strong emotions.

Vulnerability:

  1. Very high sensitivity to emotional stimuli
  2. Very intense response to emotional stimuli
  3. A slow return to emotional baseline following emotional arousal.
  4. self sooth, refocus, find clarity much faster.

WHAT DOES DBT REALLY MEAN? The term Dialectics refers to opposing forces that create a whole or synthesis. DBT focuses on finding a balance in opposing forces. Opposing forces needing a balance can be found in many things all around us, for example: the sun and the moon or the seasons. DBT Treatment and Recovery Centre teaches all 4 Categories of DBT work, with lots of back-up support.
