a therapist talks to a person in a dialectical behavior therapy programDialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a cognitive-behavioral treatment approach that focuses on helping individuals struggling with addiction by teaching them skills to manage emotions, reduce triggers, and improve self-awareness. Originally developed to treat borderline personality disorder, DBT has since been adapted and proven effective for various mental health conditions, including addiction. BlueCrest Health Group offers a dialectical behavior therapy program to help our clients reclaim their lives.

At our recovery centers in New Jersey, BlueCrest Recovery Center and QuickSilver Counseling Center, we build evidence-based treatment plans for clients. Utilizing proven methods, like DBT, and individualized 12-step approaches to recovery, we serve as a guide toward a better future.

How DBT Works for Addiction Treatment

DBT is based on the idea that some individuals are prone to intense emotional reactions and need help regulating their emotions. By learning and practicing DBT skills, individuals can better understand and manage their emotions, leading to:

  • Healthier relationships – By understanding and managing emotions, individuals can better manage relationships with family members, friends, employers, or other individuals in their lives.
  • Better coping skills – DBT teaches clients how to cope with difficult situations without resorting to drugs or alcohol.
  • Reduced impulsive behaviors – Improved emotional regulation leads to fewer impulsive behaviors and more considered responses.
  • Increased self-awareness – DBT teaches clients to become aware of their feelings and how they affect situations.

At BlueCrest Health Group, our highest priority is helping individuals overcome addiction and reclaim their lives. With a personalized treatment approach, recovery is possible.

Our Complementary DBT Program in New Jersey

DBT works well alongside other addiction treatment therapies like acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and medication-assisted treatment. ACT focuses on accepting thoughts and feelings without judgment while committing to making positive changes in behavior, which aligns with DBT’s emphasis on emotional regulation and mindfulness. Combining DBT with medication-assisted treatment can also enhance client outcomes, as medications can help stabilize mood and alleviate withdrawal symptoms, allowing individuals to fully engage in therapy.

At BlueCrest Health Group, we believe in a holistic approach to addiction treatment, using a combination of therapies tailored to each individual’s unique needs. Integrating DBT with other evidence-based treatments ensures the most effective and comprehensive care for our clients.

What to Expect from a DBT Therapy Program

At BlueCrest Health Group, clients can expect a supportive and structured environment where they can learn and practice DBT skills. Our professional therapists will work with clients in both group and individual settings to address their specific needs.

Group Dialectical Behavior Therapy

In group sessions, clients will learn and practice core DBT skills, including mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. Group sessions provide a safe space for clients to share their experiences, learn from others, and receive feedback from therapists and peers.

Individual DBT Sessions

Individual therapy sessions are designed to address each client’s unique challenges and reinforce the skills learned in group sessions. Therapists will help clients identify and work through specific issues related to addiction, such as triggers, cravings, and high-risk situations. They will also provide guidance on implementing DBT skills in daily life to promote lasting recovery.

Our goal is to empower individuals with the skills and support needed to overcome addiction and achieve lasting recovery. By participating in our DBT in New Jersey, clients can develop the tools necessary to create a healthier, more fulfilling life.
