DBT skills training in addiction treatment
To equip addicted individuals with as many coping skills as possible to embrace recovery and the 12-Step program, Marworth adapted dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) skills training. This approach focuses on important skill development aimed at preventing relapse and enhancing recovery.
Through weekly lecture and workshops, Marworth counselors teach practical and simple skills through DBT that are essential to early recovery.
DBT skill development focuses on four main areas:
- Distress tolerance
- Interpersonal effectiveness
- Emotion regulation
