Dialectical Behavioral Therapy for Addiction Treatment

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a type of cognitive behavioral therapy common in treating addiction. DBT emphasizes the psychosocial aspects of substance abuse, helping patients cope with emotional and social issues that contribute to the addiction. DBT is highly suitable for patients who face addiction issues and ones with cooccurring problems of addiction and mental health disorders, like depression, anxiety and trauma.

What is Dialectical Behavioral Therapy?

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy focuses on using contrasting ideas to truly recognize and identify an issue. For addiction specifically, DBT helps patients understand the social and emotional reasons behind their substance abuse issues, then to tie it in with positive coping mechanisms for these problems. By replacing negative emotions and behaviors with positive ones, DBT aims to reduce relapse rate and to sustain sobriety.

How does Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Work?

There are four primary components to DBT: individual therapy, group sessions, coaching and remote coaching. In addition to these key components, DBT also integrates mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness and emotional regulation.

Individual Therapy consists of short but recurring one-on-one therapy sessions for patients to interact with a therapist, learn about their initial emotional responses, identify self-destructive behaviors, and work to identify where and why they have these responses.

Group Sessions are slightly longer sessions with others who share similar harmful behaviors. In a class environment, patients learn coping mechanisms and positive corrective skills together. An added benefit of group sessions is the support system, as patients with similar issues come together and support one another throughout the recovery process.

Coaching allows patients to receive support and coaching throughout the recovery journey. Coaching differs from individual therapy as patients typically meet and interact with other therapists too.
Remote Coaching enables patients to call their therapist at any time. When the patient is experiencing emotional distress or cravings, remote coaching is helpful in preventing substance abuse or relapsing at that very moment, and for patients to practice their new coping mechanisms in a real situation.

DBT for Dual Diagnosis

Since dialectical behavioral therapy focuses on uncovering the underlying issues of addiction, it is especially useful for patients with cooccurring disorders, as these disorders tend to stem from the same underlying reason as addiction.

DBT typically consists of a more intense treatment schedule, combined with individual therapy, group training and strong counseling Therapists start by identifying the life threatening issues, such as potential overdose and suicide, then interfere with behaviors like aggression and depression. When the key reasons, emotions and behaviors are identified, the patient and therapist work together to improve patient’s quality of life in the long-run. With more support, follow-up and personalization, DBT is considered to be more effective than Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for patients with cooccurring disorders.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy for Detoxification

Resurgence strives to provide a safe, comfortable and caring environment to help patients navigate alcohol and drug detoxification. Detox is the first step for anyone dependent on alcohol or drugs. Supervised detox safely manages the acute physical symptoms of withdrawal. Common symptoms include anxiety, depression, hallucinations, restlessness and more. If left untreated and uncared for, these withdrawal symptoms can be life-threatening.

Resurgence has designed an effective detox process that helps patients detox from alcohol or drugs. Since each patient’s detox requirement differs, the process can be furthered personalized to improve its effectiveness for the individual. Most cases follow these three steps:

  1. Evaluation: Initially, the medical team screens incoming patients for physical and mental health issues, along with conducting an in-depth interview in order to formulate a personalized, long-term plan.
  2. Stabilization: The detox team then provides medical and psychological therapy that is supported with prescribed addiction treatment medications to help patients manage withdrawal symptoms.
  3. Transfer to Long-Term Care: Once the patient is stabilized, then the patient is transferred to one of Resurgence’s inpatient rehab facilities across California.

However, detox is only a short-term solution as it doesn’t sustain for long-term recovery. Research indicates that patients who undergo the detox process without a subsequent long-term rehabilitation program have a relapse rate of more than 90%. As a result, whether it’s for alcohol or drug addictions, detoxification is simply the initial preparation for a comprehensive rehabilitation program. Resurgence Tennessee offers a complete medical detoxification and inpatient rehabilitation process that allows clients to successfully sustain sobriety.
