Surf City Recovery is an outpatient substance abuse treatment center and sober living home in Huntington Beach, CA. Our program includes dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) as a key component of addiction treatment. In this article, we’ll discuss the benefits of DBT in addiction treatment and how our program, at Surf City Recovery, can help individuals in their journey toward long-term recovery.

Dialectical behavior therapy is a type of therapy that focuses on helping individuals regulate their emotions, improve their interpersonal relationships, and develop mindfulness skills. It is a highly effective treatment approach that can help you manage your addiction symptoms and reduce the risk of relapse.

At Surf City Recovery, we incorporate DBT into their addiction treatment program in several ways. First, we use DBT to help you identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to addiction. You learn mindfulness techniques and other coping strategies that can help manage your emotions without turning to drugs or alcohol.

DBT is also used as a tool for relapse prevention. You are taught to identify triggers and high-risk situations that could lead to relapse, and learn strategies for managing these situations without turning to drugs or alcohol.

Another way that DBT is used in addiction treatment is through the development of new interpersonal skills. You learn how to communicate effectively, set boundaries, and build healthy relationships with others.

At Surf City Recovery, Our addiction treatment program is personalized to meet the unique needs of each person. This means that the DBT techniques used will vary from person to person depending on their individual needs.

One benefit of DBT in addiction treatment is that it is a highly structured and goal-oriented treatment approach. You set specific goals for yourself and work with your therapist to develop a plan for achieving those goals.

DBT is also an evidence-based treatment approach, meaning that it has been scientifically proven to be effective in treating addiction. This gives people confidence in the treatment approach and can help them stay motivated in their recovery journey.

At Surf City Recovery, our addiction treatment program also includes other evidence-based treatment approaches such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and acceptance and commitment therapy.

DBT is a highly effective treatment approach for those struggling with addiction. It can help regulate emotions, improve interpersonal relationships, and develop mindfulness skills.
