Dialectical Behavioral Therapy at Banyan Pompano

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a form of psychotherapy that psychologist Marsha M. Linehan developed in the late 1980s. DBT is used to treat various forms of mental illness as well as substance use disorders, though it was initially only used to treat patients with borderline personality disorders and suicidal thoughts. The main goal of dialectical behavior therapy is to help patients at our Pompano Beach, Florida drug rehab build the confidence and coping skills they need to effectively manage stressful situations.

Our Dialectical Behavior Therapy and How It Works

  Individuals with mental illnesses and substance use disorders are more likely to turn to drugs and alcohol to cope with stress. Our facility incorporates DBT in our drug treatment in Pompano Beach, focusing our efforts on helping patients to improve their communication skills, coping skills, and self-image. Each of these is critical in achieving and maintaining long-term sobriety.

When it comes to using dialectical behavior therapy for addiction treatment, our team at Banyan Treatment Centers Pompano has found that it helps patients develop essential tools and characteristics. These include mindfulness, self-awareness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness, social skills, and emotional regulation. We understand that addiction recovery can be stressful. The physical and mental hold that drugs and alcohol can have is hard to break without help, and even then, it can be stressful. DBT is conducted in a safe setting where therapists can offer patients guidance and coping strategies for stress, ultimately helping them stay sober.

Some common components of dialectical behavior therapy include:

  • Helping patients find peer groups that discourage drug and alcohol use
  • Encouraging patients to eliminate triggers such as drug paraphernalia or unhealthy relationships from their lives
  • Boosting self-esteem and confidence to help patients stay sober through stressful periods

Additionally, some common dialectical behavior therapy techniques that we use at our rehab center in Florida include:

  • Skills training
  • Individual therapy
  • Phone coaching
  • Team consultation (which also helps therapists stay motivated)

Our team members who receive dialectical behavior therapy training get together often to discuss ways to better their practices and help their patients. But don't worry - our patients’ privacy is always honored.

Choose Our DBT Treatment in Pompano

  At Banyan Pompano, we believe that patients deserve different treatment options that can help them overcome their addictions and prepare them for life outside of rehab. While we offer an aftercare program and alumni program that offer continuous support after rehab, patients have to choose their sobriety and find ways to stay sober that work for them. From stressful situations to old friends to the loss of a loved one, many situations can make addiction recovery difficult. Even so, we’re hoping that our dialectical behavior therapy in Pompano and other drug therapy programs can boost our clients’ confidence and teach them the skills they’ll need for a sober life.

Contact our team today to learn more about our dialectical behavior therapy in Pompano and other therapy programs. We also offer different levels of care, including Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and more. Don’t wait to get yourself or a loved one the help they need.
