DBT Skills Program

DBT Skills Program

Cedar Hills Outpatient Services’ DBT Skills program provides ongoing treatment after a crisis and may even help you to avoid a mental health crisis in the future. Patients will attend group therapy three to five days a week and will also have check-ins with both their assigned therapist and psychiatrist or PMHNP. The DBT Skills program is available via telehealth (virtual).

Our DBT Skills program is designed to follow the four modules of DBT: mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation and distress tolerance. The DBT Skills program follows a structured DBT specific curriculum. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (or DBT) is an evidence-based treatment modality to help you get back to living a life you want, and living it well.

Our DBT Program Provides:

  • A welcoming, warm and safe environment for you to share
  • Education on self-care, coping skills, interpersonal skills, crisis prevention, relapse prevention and emotion regulation.
  • Opportunity to help you understand your symptoms in a peer setting
  • A trauma-informed care team
  • Medication evaluation/management
