Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a type of psychotherapy developed by Marsha Linehan in the late 1980s. She envisioned it as a treatment for borderline personality disorder. But at Boca Recovery Center, we’ve used this therapy to help hundreds of people gain a deeper understanding of their addiction history and sober future.
Every person on the Boca Recovery Center staff is committed to using only science-based modalities to help people recover from substance use disorders (SUDs). DBT is one such proven therapy.
Researchers say DBT can help people with addictions improve their emotional control, reduce compulsive behaviors, and live healthier lives. At Boca Recovery Center, DBT is part of a comprehensive program to help you gain control over an SUD.
Since 2016, Boca Recovery Center has provided safe, effective, medically proven treatment plans for people struggling with SUDs. Enroll in treatment, and you’ll spend every day using DBT and other science-based modalities to build the life you always wanted.
Your team will learn about your SUD and your past treatment attempts. We’ll also uncover underlying mental health issues that could complicate your recovery. With this information, we can plan the best therapeutic approach and choose therapy types.
DBT teaches people skills to cope with strong emotions, triggers, and cravings. But this therapy works best when it’s customized.
Your care team will learn more about your future plans, past struggles, and current triggers. That data helps us craft the best path forward.
If DBT is right for you, treatment will consist of individual therapy, group training skills sessions, and phone coaching. Your treatment team will monitor your progress at every step, ensuring you get all you can out of this important recovery method. DBT will be used alongside other therapies to provide true wraparound care for SUD.
Only proven, science-based therapies are offered at Boca Recovery Center. DBT is one such treatment.

Boca recovery housing was very comfortable for the time I spent there. The apartment has two bedrooms fully furnished with kitchen appliances and all the necessary items to cook meals every day. It definitely allowed me to transition back to reality very easily as I was attending groups and AA meetings every day. I enjoyed using the gym and basketball they provided. I would recommend to anyone.

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) helps people struggling with substance use disorders learn new skills to solve the problems that are contributing to their addiction. These skills include distress tolerance, emotional regulation, interpersonal communication, and mindfulness.
During a DBT session, the therapist helps individuals recovering from addiction to understand why they act in a specific way. The back-and-forth debate (dialectics) between a client and therapist allows those who abuse substances to examine their false beliefs and arrive at the truth.
