Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) uses an intensive outpatient format to treat some of the more complex behavioral health conditions which can be particularly distressing and tough to handle. Patient’s undergoing DBT will focus on learning new ways to cope with stress, regulate emotions, and relate to others. Originally used to treat borderline personality disorder, DBT has proven to be an effective program for many mental health conditions that are difficult to treat.
IOP is available for patients with co-occurring disorders.

DBT is a type of cognitive behavioral therapy, which is a talk therapy that aims to identify people’s negative thought patterns and teach them new ways of framing their world. A typical DBT program will involve several different types of therapy settings, including individualized therapy, classroom-style sessions, and over-the-phone coaching. During these sessions, you will learn new ways of interacting with people and incorporate new behavioral skills into your day-to-day life.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) are forms of psychotherapy. A mental health professional helps the patient learn about their life challenges and teaches skills to help them cope with those challenges. CBT teaches how thoughts, feelings, and behaviours influence each other. DBT is a more advanced version of CBT, with more focus on social and emotional aspects. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy is an evidence-based approach to help people regulate their emotions. Although it started as a treatment for borderline personality disorder, research shows it can help with many different mental illnesses or concerns.
