Dialectal Behavior Therapy

Florida Dialectal Behavior Therapy

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) seeks to get at the root cause of substance abuse. Moreover, living with a chemical dependency is difficult for most people. In fact, addiction generally destroys everything in the path of the addicted; health, safety, jobs and more. Over time, they may even destroy your closest relationships beyond repair.

However, it's imperative to recognize that not all addiction treatment methods are created alike. Your recovery depends on choosing the one that fits you best. For example, what helps one person find success and get their life back might not work as well for someone else. Choose an addiction treatment program that generates a high rate of positive outcomes and that is easily customized to fit a wide assortment of different people. One such method is known as Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).

What Are the Benefits of Dialectical Behavior Therapy?

DBT can vary from facility to facility. Features of treatment will likely be individualized to each patient’s unique needs. However, the overall method is shown effective for three major benefits:

  • Better control of emotions
  • Increased self-management of trauma
  • Improved interpersonal relationships

What Is Dialectical Behavior Therapy?

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) was first created as an alternative to traditional methods that weren’t effective for certain clients. It seeks to treat addiction by getting to the root causes behind it. This may include anything from behavioral issues to interpersonal problems.

DBT differs from traditional addiction therapies in several different ways. It provides the patient with tools developed to be self-awareness and teach coping skills. Additionally, it includes both group therapy and individual therapy sessions. The goal is not just to deal with addiction to alcohol and drugs, but to come out of the process a better, more well-balanced person. A person fully equipped to live life free of drugs or alcohol.

DBT has shown to be effective in reducing treatment dropout rates.  DBT is a form of psychotherapy that was originally developed to treat women with histories of suicidal ideations, or other self-harming behaviors. It was also developed for those suffering from borderline personality disorder.

DBT combines standard cognitive-behavioral techniques for emotional stability with concepts of distress tolerance, acceptance, and mindfulness. Research has demonstrated that DBT is effective in harm reduction, treatment attrition, substance abuse, anger and interpersonal relationships.

Jack’s journey began when he arrived at Simple Path to get clean and sober. He never thought he could deal with his anxiety and depression without using drugs. Group and one-on-one therapy empowered him to deal with his problems and get better. Going strong at his one-year anniversary, Jack is in a very good place.

"I attended Simple Path in June of 2019. I had never tried to get sober and I never went to treatment before. I was scared and vulnerable. I immediately felt safe at Simple Path. In the IOP the therapists listened to me, like actually heard and genuinely cared about me. They not only helped me on my path to sobriety but they also helped me immensely with my trauma. God willing I'll have 16 months on the 1st. I couldn't have done it without all the love and care from Simple Path. Thank you to Cathy, Heidi, Carrie, Emily, Sammy Jo and Ian!"
