What Is Dialectical Behavior Therapy?

DBT is a cognitive-behavioral treatment designed specifically for individuals dealing with:

  • Substance abuse and addiction
  • Depression, PTSD, and anxiety
  • Borderline personality disorder
  • Suicidal thoughts or self-harm behaviors
  • Emotion regulation difficulties and impulsivity

With the help and insight of our caring therapists, you'll learn the skills you need to handle distress, improve your relationships, deal with difficult emotions, and make wise decisions.

Our DBT Treatment Programs

DBT treatment is available at our Prescott or Scottsdale Recovery Center in Arizona.

Individual Therapy Sessions

Work one-on-one with your therapist to define goals, apply new skills, and troubleshoot issues. Your therapist will get to know you and your needs on a profound level, understanding your challenges so they can offer personalized support.

Group Skills Training Classes

In group classes, you'll learn core DBT techniques together with other patients. Discovering that others face similar struggles helps ease feelings of isolation. And practicing skills as a group affords encouragement, accountability, and a judgment-free zone for sharing your challenges and victories.

Phone Coaching

For in-the-moment support during crises or times of vulnerability, we offer phone coaching. Even after clinic hours, our therapists are available to talk you through painful emotions before they escalate into destructive behavior.

Family Sessions

Part of our mission is to educate your loved ones about DBT and how they can support your recovery process in constructive ways. We have found that strengthening relationships in this way improves outcomes.

Aftercare Planning

Planning for the future is essential to ensure you maintain the recovery and new skills learned in treatment. We'll develop a plan for ongoing wellness tailored exactly to your needs.

Skills You Will Learn in DBT

Our DBT therapists can give you the skills you need to get your life back on track.

Mindfulness Skills

Mindfulness helps you stay grounded in the present moment so you can respond thoughtfully to situations instead of reacting impulsively. For example, controlled breathing exercises can reduce anxiety, while guided meditation helps you deal with discomfort without becoming overwhelmed.

Distress Tolerance Techniques

Tolerance techniques offer alternatives to self-destructive coping mechanisms when you're experiencing painful emotions or urges. You'll learn skills like self-soothing, improving the moment, and riding out cravings or awkward feelings without acting on them.

Emotion Regulation

Emotion regulation gives you the strategies you need to understand your feelings, reduce reactivity to triggers, accept and process emotions, and communicate needs constructively. Ultimately, this leads to better relationships.

Interpersonal Effectiveness Skills

Interpersonal skills allow you to set boundaries, clearly ask for what you need, navigate conflict maturely, and nurture healthier, more intimate relationships.

DBT provides the solutions you need to:

  • Stay present even in the midst of chaos
  • Move through painful events or emotions without numbing or self-destruction
  • Understand your feelings, reduce reactivity, and express emotions constructively
  • Cultivate unshakable confidence in your inner resilience
  • Respond thoughtfully to triggers instead of lashing out
  • Use self-soothing or distracting activities to ride out the wave of an intense urge
  • Build healthy relationships and set boundaries lovingly

With dedication and practice, these skills will become second nature. Our dedication and compassionate support make lasting transformation possible.

The Healing Power of Community

Lasting recovery isn't a solo journey. That's why we offer a collaborative treatment environment surrounded by support, care, and understanding from both peers and clinicians.

At our Arizona recovery centers in Scottsdale and Prescott, you'll soon realize you're not alone. Your peers, who understand the struggle, will encourage you as you overcome challenges together. And our therapists will facilitate with empathy, never judgment.

Our goal is to nurture hope, resilience, and the certainty that a meaningful life exists beyond your struggles. With effective DBT therapy techniques and a caring community on your side, you will get there.

DBT Changes Lives
