This evidence-based practice was designed to treat symptoms associated with Borderline Personality Disorder. However, since its initial conception the strategies outlined in DBT have been beneficial in treating a variety of disorders including anxiety, depression and substance abuse. Solvista Health has been committed to developing a thriving DBT program including training clinicians and supporting weekly DBT consultation among staff regarding high risk clients with the hopes of providing quality evidence-based treatment that meets the needs of our clients.

Currently, Solvista offers women's DBT, co-ed DBT and adolescent DBT groups. In its complete form, DBT includes individual therapy, skills training groups and skills coaching for application in everyday life.

The group focuses on developing skills such as:

  • Mindfulness
  • Distress tolerance
  • Interpersonal effectiveness
  • Emotion regulation

By learning and putting into practice these types of skills, individuals are better able to navigate and identify difficult emotions and find healthier ways of coping.
