What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy?

Dialectical behavior therapy is an evidence-based form of treatment that helps you develop practical coping skills for mental disorders. Since behavioral or personality disorders are what often lead to addiction, we address these disorders to ensure a successful addiction recovery. 

Therapy sessions are broken down into four stages: 

Stage One: Controlling Behaviors

You identify the destructive behaviors that are affecting you and others. Your therapist teaches you how to control your behaviors that cause harm. They provide strategies that help you manage impulses that lead to these behaviors.

Stage Two: Talking About Emotions

Your therapist helps you talk about your emotions and coping with the underlying issues that may be bottled up. They can help you work through traumatic experiences or circumstances you are struggling with. By talking about your emotions, you remove obstacles to true healing.

Stage Three: Problem-Solving

You can collaborate with your therapist to find solutions to problems in your life. Learning to solve problems helps you to navigate all areas of your life successfully. You discover how to think more rationally as situations arise.

Stage Four: Reconnecting

If your addiction or disorder has alienated you from family, coworkers, or friends, DBT can help you reconnect. You can improve your communication skills and work out any detachment issues. You can learn how to foster healthy relationships with those around you.

How Does a Dialectical Behavior Therapy Program Benefit You?

Our dialectical behavior therapy program in Houston, TX, is a form of talk therapy in which you engage with your treatment specialist in an individual or group setting. The purpose of dialectical behavior therapy is for you to address and discuss what is going on inside you, while your therapist gives you strategies for dealing with it. This form of therapy presents several benefits, including:

  • Identifying what is causing your internal struggles
  • Reducing stress, anxiety, depression, and anger
  • Learning how to stop engaging in harmful behavior
  • Addressing borderline personality disorder

Dialectical behavioral therapy is a science-based form of treatment. It is backed by years of research and real-world observation of previous clients. This is why it is an integral part of our addiction treatment program at Right Step Houston.
