Like CBT, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is also a talking therapy that helps you accept yourself, feel safe, and effectively manage your emotions. Its operations are based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), but it is tailored specifically for those of us who feel emotions very strongly.
The aim of this form of therapy is to help you make sense of and accept your difficult feelings, acquire skills and tools that can assist you to manage the feelings, and strengthen you to make positive life changes.
We understand that two separate things in life can seem opposite, yet both could be true. For instance, accepting who you are and changing your behavior might come off as contradictory. At San Diego Detox, we have developed DBT tools that help you realize that it is possible for you to both accept yourself and change for the better. Our therapists tactfully balance acceptance techniques with change techniques.
Our dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) programs help clients with depression, borderline personality disorder, cutting addiction, as well as drug and alcohol issues. After carefully assessing your situation, if we see that you are a good candidate for DBT, we employ this therapy as part of your unique treatment plan. Otherwise, we offer you an equally efficient alternative therapy suited to your individual needs.
