With Change Comes Clarity

 

 

Women Drug Treatment and Wellness Center offers alternative approaches to treatment of mental health. DBT teaches the art of mindful awareness and meditation to treat addiction and create a healthy mind.
I really feel my Counselor cared and heard me! Incorporating DBT and Health Realization into my treatment plan was just what I needed. I know now I do not have to react to every negative thought or stressful situation that comes my way. Learning coping skills is exactly what I needed to continue with my recovery plan from my addictions. Jennifer See more Testimonials >

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)

DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) has emerged as an effective treatment for a broad range of complex and difficult- to treat -disorders. DBT focuses on helping the woman develop skills for regulating emotions. DBT is based on the synthesis of cognitive behavioral techniques (CBT) and mindfulness practices. However, the blending of the mindfulness practice of acceptance or ‘allowing’ fundamentally shifts the nature of the change strategies that comprise traditional CBT. DBT provides a fluid structure with which to stay on target with the most challenging clients. However, it is not a rule-based therapy. Fidelity in DBT requires an understanding of the guiding principles so that the strategies can be applied in response to clients’ movements. The Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselors incorporate DBT therapy into the individual and group counseling sessions. Women Drug Treatment Women’s Wellness Center encourages each woman to participate in DBT educational groups to gain a basic understanding of the theory of emotion deregulation.

Educational curriculum includes the following topic discussions:
  • Emotional Regulation and Mindfulness
  • Interpersonal Effectiveness
  • Mindfulness-Being Present
  • Distress Tolerance
