Benefits of Dialectic Behavioral Therapy

Addiction treatment takes many forms. DBT, or dialectic behavioral therapy, is just one way you can start to address your addiction and take the first tentative steps on your road to recovery. As a form of cognitive-behavioral therapy, DBT is now being used to treat several types of mental disorders. It has also been found to be extremely effective for individuals who are struggling with addiction. The premise behind DBT is that there is more than one way to address an issue. For some, this means multiple treatment options. In Dialectic Group Therapy, each patient gets to participate in helping one another find which ways are most beneficial for each person. This type of therapy provides each patient what they need on their individual journey.

Maintain Motivation

Addiction and recovery are personal journeys. No one can walk the path for you. One of the benefits of Dialectic Group Therapy is that if you truly want to achieve your goal and stay on the road to recovery, you get the support you need to maintain your motivation to succeed. It’s not easy to walk the path to recovery when you have no support. As part of a group, you have support from those who are walking similar journeys and can share their experiences. No judgments, no misconceptions. Everyone has their own story. Acceptance is key and encouragement is a must if you want to help one another stay motivated.

Be Mindful and Aware

Being mindful and aware of the world around you is essential if you are hoping for a successful recovery journey. Addiction treatment plans can help you with many aspects of your program, but it is up to you to use that information and guide yourself through the obstacles you will face. Being mindful of the obstacles and challenges ahead of you will allow you to find positive ways to work through each one. Being mindful of where you are and aware of the resources you have at your disposal are both keys to succeeding when it comes to your recovery.

Realize Your Capabilities

One of the most difficult things to do during your recovery journey is to realize you are capable of achieving your goals. Challenges and obstacles can sometimes be overwhelming, shaking your resolve and weakening your motivation. In Dialectic Group Therapy, you are given an opportunity to share your ideas as well as your experiences. What worked for you may also work for another who is struggling with a similar issue. Not everyone has the same basic experiences so sharing these ideas can give them a new perspective on how to handle a difficult situation. During therapy, focus on one another’s abilities and then build on them. By sharing what has worked for you, it gives others resources they may never have thought of on their own. Help one another realize their capabilities and in doing so, become stronger and more focused on their recovery.

Strengthen Your Resolve

Dialectic Group Therapy can also help you to strengthen your resolve to complete your recovery journey. Setting your goals may be easy but achieving them will take hard work, dedication, and a strong commitment to succeed. While you are in recovery, you need to maintain a positive focus on you and where you are heading on your journey. No one can walk it for you, but they can walk alongside you. In group therapy, you are surrounded by a group of peers, all on their own individual journeys. Stay strong in your resolve to walk your path along with others in your group.
