DBT Treatment Program for Bipolar Disorder, PTSD, Depression and Anxiety
The finding that “Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) reduces depressive symptoms, improve affective control, and improve mindfulness self-efficiency” are not surprising to the Meehl Foundation DBT therapists, who have been using DBT since the start of the foundation in 2005. The step-by-step process of emotional regulation is a core component of DBT rarely taught to the general public let alone people with mental illness. “A randomized, controlled, pilot study of dialectical behavior therapy skills in a psychoeducational group for individuals with bipolar disorder,” has just been completed. This study shows significant improvement in mindfulness awareness, less fear and more control in emotional states and fewer emergency room visits. Having a measure of control in emotional states is the key component.
And with these goals, a realistic plan is created for long-term wellbeing of mind, body, and spirit.
Residential DBT Treatment Setting
The Meehl House is one of the first locations in the nation to offer residential group homes providing Dialectical Behavioral Therapy for individuals with Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Anxiety, Depression and Substance Abuse. The house can accommodate as many as four residents at any given time. An evaluation will determine if a candidate for DBT program meets the residency requirements. If you are not a candidate for us, we will refer you to a different DBT program. If you need 24/7 supervision, consider a hospital setting.
Caution: Many facilities will tell you that they “take your insurance”, but many clients are angry and disappointed when they find out that insurance does not pay for things like; yoga, equine therapy, acupuncture, massage, and hypnosis, leaving them with tens of thousands of dollars to pay the treatment facility when they leave. Any reputable treatment facility will give you your cost in writing BEFORE you get into treatment. The Meehl Foundation, as an out-of-network provider, will give you the CPT codes to give to your insurance for reimbursement for therapies and groups we do here.
