When you enter detox at The Retreat, you will be introduced to a wide range of therapies and treatment. In some sessions, you will attend yoga and meditation classes to help heal your mind and spirit after extensive drug or alcohol abuse. However, in other cases, you will attend DBT. What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy and how can it make an impact in your recovery?
Benefits of Dialectical Behavior Therapy
DBT is a form of cognitive psychotherapy that is primarily concerned with addressing conflict, managing painful triggers, and extreme swings of emotions. In many cases, individuals struggling with substance abuse are more likely to develop uncommon emotional responses and utilize substances to reduce those responses. These reactions can lead to further substance abuse or mental illness.
With Dialectical Behavior Therapy, you will work in a collaborative setting with our therapists to implement positive behavioral changes in your life. Specifically, the therapist will help you understand that emotions, such as anger or sadness, are normal. These are not warnings that you need to use more drugs or alcohol. For example, many individuals will panic as a response to these emotions, which can lead to substance abuse as a way of coping or self-medicating.
