Anyone can be affected with a serious mental health issue at some point in their life. Unfortunately, some mental health problems can lead to damaging, life-harming behaviors such as interpersonal instability, job loss, self-harm, substance abuse, addiction, and can lead to suicidal behavior. If you or a loved one are suffering with a serious mental health problem, you should know that effective treatments are available and can be beneficial and life-changing.
Many patients have found that dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) has been the key to healing and building the life they want to live. It is designed to treat mood and anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), borderline personality disorder, eating disorders, and substance use disorders. DBT is recognized as one of the most effective treatments for those suffering from a variety of serious mental health problems and disorders, particularly borderline personality disorder. In fact, it is the most well-established treatment for chronic suicidality and self-injury in the world.
DBT is an evidence-based psychotherapy that includes weekly individual therapy, formal skills training, and skills support outside of appointments. Patients learn skills to help them achieve success in their lives. The skills are constructed into four modules which are mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness and emotion regulation. This form of treatment has helped many individuals overcome their struggles – even when other treatments have failed.
Our staff of caring, experienced therapists are committed to providing the best care for those who are suffering. DBT services are offered 100% remotely for your privacy and convenience. DBT can be the solution that you or someone you care about has been searching for. You can learn more about enrolling in Reliant’s DBT program at this web page.
