Understanding DBT, or dialectical behavior therapy.Addiction is a disease that is complex. Moreover, its causes can come from a number of different aspects in your life. Through dialectical behavior therapy, or DBT, we can help you overcome conflict and painful emotions in your life that may influence your substance abuse.

However, what is DBT and can it make a difference in your recovery? With dialectical behavior therapy, you can develop mindfulness and new patterns of thoughts, managing anger, and negative emotions.

What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy Exactly?

Specifically, DBT is an opportunity for our clients to decrease conflict in relationships by managing painful emotions and developing therapeutic skills. Dialectical behavior therapy is a form of psychotherapy that emphasizes the psychosocial aspects of treatment.

People facing addiction are more prone to develop out-of-the-ordinary emotions and actions that can be intense. These extreme swings in emotions can negatively influence and cause addiction.

Therefore, by recognizing these patterns, we can help you develop coping skills and positive emotional responses, instead of negative, more intense reactions.

What Does DBT Entail?

Dialectical behavior therapy is a support-driven modality. Furthermore, this is a collaborative setting in which you can work out your problems with our therapists.

DBT will teach you different ways of thinking. As a result, you will begin to recognize anger as a normal emotion, not a warning that leads to panic and substance abuse.
