Our DBT Program, one of the very few residential programs in the country, is for patients with a demonstrated history of poor emotional control, impulsivity, self-damaging behaviors and interpersonal disorganization. It is a highly structured, intensive program for patients who do not need close inpatient supervision but are not able to manage successfully in an outpatient setting.
Our specialized, DBT-trained team consists of psychiatrists, social workers, nurses and counselors. Treatment focuses on DBT skills training groups and coaching that teach patients how to better regulate their emotions and how to replace dysfunctional coping strategies with more adaptive behaviors.
As with our other Transitional Living Programs the entire array of services at Silver Hill are available to patients as needed. Under the guidance of this staff, patients have the opportunity to “live” the skills and coping strategies they learn – as they learn them. Most team members are intensively DBT-trained and all participate in a weekly consultation team.
