Dialectical Behavioral Therapy in Encino

Navigating the path to recovery can be challenging, but it’s a journey made easier with the right tools and approaches. One such approach available to clients at New Spirit Recovery is dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). Located in Encino, New Spirit Recovery offers a broad spectrum of therapeutic modalities, and DBT is a significant part of this range.

DBT is a cognitive-behavioral approach that emphasizes the psychosocial aspects of treatment. It marries the concept of acceptance — understanding and acknowledging one’s experiences — with the drive for change, creating a dynamic balance that fosters growth and healing.

At New Spirit Recovery, we value individualized and holistic care. DBT fits into this philosophy by addressing the unique needs of each person, focusing not only on the symptoms but also on the underlying causes of distress. Our mission is to provide support and guidance throughout your recovery journey, helping you build a healthier life.

The road to recovery isn’t traversed alone. With the compassionate team at New Spirit Recovery and therapeutic modalities like DBT, you’re taking steps toward health, healing, and a new spirit of wellness.

How Does Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Work?

Dialectical behavioral therapy operates on two fundamental principles— acceptance and change. It initially encourages individuals to accept and validate their current experiences and emotions. This acknowledgment of reality forms the basis of the therapeutic process. The second phase involves the pursuit of positive change. 

The goal is to replace unhealthy coping mechanisms with adaptive skills, allowing individuals to manage their emotions, tolerate distress, and interact more effectively with others. Above all, DBT seeks to create a life that feels fulfilling and worth living for each individual, fostering well-being, self-acceptance, and hope.

The Benefits of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

Dialectical behavioral therapy is an effective therapeutic approach with numerous benefits. As part of the holistic care we provide at New Spirit Recovery, DBT is instrumental in addressing complex psychosocial issues.

Here are some of the notable benefits:

  • Improved emotional regulation: DBT provides tools to help individuals understand and manage their emotions better, reducing instances of emotional overwhelm.
  • Enhanced distress tolerance: Through exposure to stressors in a controlled environment, DBT helps individuals build resilience and increases their ability to handle distressing situations.
  • Mindfulness: DBT encourages being fully present in the moment, promoting mindfulness. This leads to improved focus, reduced anxiety, and an increased sense of calm.
  • Interpersonal effectiveness: DBT teaches effective communication skills, which can lead to improved relationships and reduced conflict.
  • Decrease in self-destructive behaviors: DBT can reduce harmful behaviors by providing healthier coping mechanisms and building a better understanding of triggers and responses.
