At Immersion Recovery Center we utilize a wide range of evidence-based therapeutic methods, including dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). DBT is a type of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) originally developed to help people struggling with persistent negative emotions and related behavioral patterns. DBT teaches techniques such as mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation and interpersonal effectiveness. The main goals of DBT are to help clients learn to live in the present moment, improve their relationships and stabilize their emotions.
During active addiction we spend most of our time regretting the past and dreading the future; we essentially forget how to live in the present moment. Even if we could, why would we want to? Our interpersonal relationships suffer dramatically. We push our close friends and family members as far away as we possibly can. Our emotional health flies out the window entirely. Our moods are dictated by the chemical substances we keep pumping into our bodies.
When we get sober, all of these functions are out of whack. Therapeutic methods like DBT help us start functioning effectively again. We relearn vital skills we might have forgotten, and pick up a range of new coping mechanisms. At Immersion Recovery Center we provide each and every one of our clients with an effective program of addiction recovery that combines evidence-based therapies like CBT and DBT, 12-Step recovery and holistic treatments.
