Dialectical Behavior Therapy for Addiction

The recovery journey is rarely a smooth one.

Dialectical behavior therapy helps individuals learn to manage emotions as they work to change behaviors.  We use it to empower our residents with skills for life after addiction.

At Next Step Recovery, we provide post-detox care for men.  Our men’s treatment program combines DBT and other clinical therapies with structure and peer-support.  We specialize in sustainable sobriety, relapse prevention, life skills, and long term addiction treatment.

As we say:

“Recovery is the Real Adventure.”

Dialectical behavior therapy teaches you to walk the middle path along that adventure.

Learning to Grow From Acceptance and Change to Create a Meaningful Life

The path to recovery requires both acceptance and change.

DBT validates the feelings of patients and teaches them how to transform them.

Dialectical behavior therapy helps develop important skills such as mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, distress tolerance, and emotional regulation.  It is easy to see why it is an effective aid for a variety of mental health disorders including substance abuse.

DBT help build the emotional resiliency the real world demands.

The young men in our program learn to take cope with the realities of life and eventually develop the skills the thrive.  Begin that journey for yourself today.
