Dialectical  Behavior Therapy

At Safe Haven Beverly Hills, we use Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) as a crucial component of our core treatment program. DBT is an evidence-based therapeutic approach that teaches participants to rebuild their personal relationships and cultivate a positive self-image. This therapy, in use since the 1980s, has enabled millions of patients to discover a new sense of purpose. Our Dialectical Behavioral Therapy specialists have years of experience in helping their patients determine when to rely on their own abilities and when to seek help from others.

A Guide to Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

For patients who struggle with co-occurring disorders or long-term substance abuse issues, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is one of the most effective treatments available. This medically-based therapeutic approach is patterned after the latest research on cognitive functions.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy works by attacking the roots of addictive behavior and establishing new patterns of purpose, confidence, and peace. By helping participants to confront negative thoughts, DBT sessions cultivate mindfulness, interpersonal skills, and distress tolerance.

Over the course of a DBT program, patients:

Recognize the struggles they are going through in the present

Accept that there are situations and circumstances that are outside their control

Learn to set sensible boundaries and expectations

Establish healthy levels of self-confidence and self-reliance

Mend damaged interpersonal relationships through goal-setting and sensitivity to others’ needs

No patient goes through this journey alone. Our team of trained psychiatric professionals, along with a supportive accountability group, guides patients through every stage of the process. At Safe Haven Beverly Hills, we utilize a combination of one-on-one therapy sessions and group meetings to keep patients focused on their recovery.
