We run an adherent DBT program and thus offer all components of comprehensive services. This includes weekly individual sessions, weekly skills training groups, and between session phone coaching. In addition, all our psychologists attend weekly DBT consultation meetings. It is important to understand the difference between comprehensive DBT and DBT informed approaches. The latter may not include all the DBT components outlined by the treatment developer (Dr. Marsha Linehan). Most research demonstrating the effectiveness of DBT is based on adherent services.

DBT has also been adapted to treat individuals who struggle with dual diagnoses. This program offers all the components of comprehensive services in addition to specific skills targeting addiction. Those include dialectical abstinence, adaptive denial, alternate rebellion and many others. Depending on the needs of the individual patient, we may offer these skills in either individual or group formats.For more information on DBT SUDs adaptation please click on the link below:
DBT has also been adapted to the treatment of individuals with simple or complex-PTSD. Trauma treatment in the context of DBT varies widely and depends on the unique needs of each individual patient. Treatment may be standard DBT or may include the addition of concurrent trauma-focused treatment such as Prolonged Exposure (PE) or Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT). Specific treatment plan suggestions will be made to patients after their initial assessment with one of our psychologists.
Arguably one of the most successful adaptations of DBT, the adolescent program includes similar components to that of adults with minor variations. Depending on the individual needs of teens and their families we may suggest a combination of the following components.
