Dialectal Behavioral Therapy (DBT) teaches clients how to regulate their emotions to reduce the self-destructive behaviors that derive from extreme, intense emotions.
DBT focuses on 4 skill sets that include distress tolerance, emotion regulation, mindfulness, and interpersonal effectiveness.
DBT can be adapted for many substance abuse cases but mainly focuses on treating severe personality disorders, such as borderline personality disorder.
DBT works to reduce cravings, help patients avoid situations or opportunities to relapse, assist in giving up actions that reinforce substance use, and learn healthy coping skills.
