What is DBT Therapy?

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive-behavioral treatment developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan. Originally designed to treat individuals with borderline personality disorder, DBT has since been adapted for other mental health disorders, showing significant success in treating trauma and addiction as well.

DBT focuses on the balance between acceptance and change, empowering individuals to recognize their strengths while equipping them with tools to change negative thought patterns and behaviors.

Core Components of DBT at Pinnacle Peak Recovery

Our DBT modalities at Pinnacle Peak Recovery encompass three main components:

Individual Therapy: Personalized sessions where clients work one-on-one with a trained therapist to delve into past traumas and develop coping strategies.

Group Skills Training: Clients come together in a supportive environment to learn and practice essential skills. The curriculum is divided into several modules that include mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness.

Holistic DBT-Informed Therapist: At Pinnacle Peak Recovery, we understand that comprehensive healing involves more than just traditional therapeutic techniques. While we strongly emphasize the principles and practices of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), we also incorporate holistic modalities such as yoga and meditation. These holistic practices, combined with DBT's mindfulness and emotional regulation techniques, synergistically work to harmonize the mind, body, and spirit. This integrative approach equips our clients with robust tools to manage stress, enhance awareness, and foster a profound inner peace.

Benefits of DBT for Trauma and Addiction

DBT offers a structured pathway for those struggling with trauma and addiction:

Enhanced Emotional Regulation: Equip clients with tools to manage and respond to intense emotional situations without resorting to self-destructive behaviors.

Improved Interpersonal Skills: Empower clients to foster healthier relationships and communicate more effectively.

Mindfulness and Presence: Teach clients to be present, allowing for improved decision-making and reduced impulsivity.
