What Is DBT?

Dialectical behavior therapy is a type of cognitive-behavioral therapy widely used to treat substance use disorders. It can also address other mental health conditions that often co-occur with addiction, such as:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Borderline personality disorder (BPD)

The main focus of DBT is to help people improve their emotional regulation skills by learning how to accept themselves and make positive changes. This therapy teaches clients to use techniques such as mindfulness, emotional regulation, distress tolerance skills, and interpersonal effectiveness to manage their intense emotions and relationships.

QuickSilver offers DBT as part of our intensive outpatient and co-occurring rehab programs for clients in New Jersey. We provide individualized treatment plans comprising counseling sessions with DBT-trained therapists and group therapy sessions with peers. These interventions can help individuals learn coping mechanisms that help them manage their mental health and addiction symptoms.

How DBT Can Promote Recovery

Through DBT, individuals learn how their thoughts and feelings influence their behaviors, helping them make meaningful changes to improve their overall health and well-being. Dialectical behavior therapy services seek to help individuals modify damaging or self-defeating problematic behaviors, such as substance use, and replace them with adaptive skills that can lead to long-term success in their sobriety journey. These skills include:

  • Emotional regulation – Involves learning how to identify triggers and manage powerful emotions without resorting to drugs or alcohol
  • Mindfulness practices – Help an individual become more aware of their thoughts and feelings without judgment
  • Distress tolerance – Teaches people how to cope with difficult situations without using substances
  • Interpersonal effectiveness – Helps clients interact positively with others
  • Acceptance strategies – Focus on accepting one’s current situation and recognizing it as something that cannot always be changed

By utilizing these tools, individuals can more effectively manage the symptoms of addiction while becoming better equipped to stay sober long-term.
