Setting up a plan for freedom from addiction. At Lifeskills South Florida, we meet people where they are at. We are able to engage people in active addiction, assist them through detoxification required to start recovery. Those trapped in the grips of addiction have disconnected from themselves, their supports, and their inner strength. Treatment is about reclaiming their life and freedom of choice.
Chemical DBT programming is a structured program, consisting of four separate modules. Lifeskills is a certified residential setting of the Linehan Institute with the elite status of having several intensively trained B+DBT therapists that are complimented with other certified DBT therapists in the program.
- Distress Tolerance
- Interpersonal Effectiveness
- Emotional Regulation
These modules are conducted during 21 group sessions lasting between 60-90 minutes each, twice a week. During this time, clients practice a mindfulness exercise, review and process homework from the previous session, and learn new skills. Attending each session is essential to treatment, as each one builds off the previous session.
In addition to group programming, clients are encouraged to participate in community meetings such as 12-Step, Smart Recovery, Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, or Refuge Recovery. Also, clients are required to have a sponsor to participate in the clinical pathway.
The highly qualified and nationally certified treatment team at Lifeskills South Florida also provides evidence-based treatment modalities such as Cognitive Remediation, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) which emphasizes changing behavior through applying specific skills.
