Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Table of Contents

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) helps clients better deal with the difficulties of everyday life. DBT counselors sometimes give homework assignments for patients to reflect on between sessions. DBT is often associated with treating borderline personality disorder (BPD) and those with suicidal ideation. Because DBT is useful for a broader range of patients, including those with alcohol and substance use disorders, it is now a more widely used therapeutic approach. DBT is commonly used for patients suffering from severe depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). In a dialectical behavior therapy program like the one offered at United Recovery Project’s detox center, counselors use psychotherapy programs to help teach patients how to accept their personal situations and learn therapeutic techniques that promote positive thinking and healthy behaviors.

How DBT Can Be A Guiding Force On The Path To Recovery

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) initially focuses on life-threatening behaviors. Counselors then help guide patients through behaviors that interfere with the therapy process.

DBT helps clients:

  • Learn to combat intrusive thoughts
  • Avoid negative thought patterns
  • Avoid a tendency towards black and white thinking
  • Regulate appropriate responses to conflict

Patients are encouraged to work on quality of life issues that interfere with:

  • Work
  • Professional development
  • Finances

DBT aims to teach patients essential life skills that help improve:

  • Self-esteem
  • Relationships
  • Emotional regulation

The Important Role Of Acceptance

These detox therapy services are called “dialectical” because they integrate opposites of change and acceptance. Skills at the foundation of DBT are acceptance-oriented. Patients learn to accept the present moment and pain when it emerges. Patients also learn how to navigate changing interpersonal and emotional patterns.

Over the course of DBT treatment, patients progress from:

  • What feels like an impossible state of being
  • Acceptance of their personal situation
  • Accepting a mental health diagnoses
  • Acceptance of substance abuse disorders
  • Working on expanding your abilities to cope
  • Embracing techniques that allow you to have productive and satisfying days

DBT has demonstrated success in harm reduction, suicide prevention, helping individuals complete rehab, and maintaining a life of sobriety. With the assistance of trained professional counselors, DBT can help patients manage their personal mental health challenges. These might include:

  • Depression
  • Accumulated anger and pain
  • Feelings of embarrassment and shame
  • Difficulty with social engagement
  • Anti-social behavior

Choose United Recovery Project’s DBT Program For Safe Detox

There is a temptation to consider at-home detox an easy solution. However, medical detox has been clinically proven to be safer, more comfortable, and significantly more effective. It’s important to keep in mind the unpleasant and potentially dangerous withdrawal symptoms a person may experience during the detox process. Not only is it more comfortable, but it is safer to go through withdrawal under medical supervision. Withdrawal symptoms may include but are not limited to:

  • Irritability
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Anxiety
  • Sleep issues
  • Fatigue
  • Tremors
