Addiction is an illness of escape. Its goal is to obliterate, medicate, and/or ignore painful reality. It produces an alternate route to feelings of betrayal, worry, loneliness, or any real type of problem solving. DBT skills can improve ones ability to handle distress without acting out destructively. They offer concrete behavior techniques that clients can integrate to help them stop unhealthy behavior patterns, i.e. internet, at risk…

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is set up to help individuals cognitively, and provides behavioral therapies to teach clients a healthy way to handle painful emotions through acceptance and change. The heart of DBT balances deep acceptance of clients as they are, with active strategies for helping them change.

Through DBT techniques, clients can confront themselves and make changes they need to grow into healthy living. Individuals learn skills of mindfulness, emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress tolerance; all of which eliminate the urgent need to escape reality. They learn practical skills for coping within reality. The skills empower them, quality of life increases, and healthy living replaces the downward spiral of addiction.

DBT can improve one’s ability to handle distress without losing control and acting destructively. In order to make use of these techniques, skills need to be built in four key areas:

The Four Modules of DBT:
1) Mindfulness
2) Interpersonal effectiveness
3) Emotion regulation
4) Distress tolerance
