Adult DBT Program

Adult DBT Programs at MHS

  • Comprehensive intensive outpatient, standard DBT, and one day weekly options based on level of need
  • Coordinated care with other providers
  • Aftercare program available

Our Adult DBT Programs provide comprehensive therapy and skills that help individuals decrease symptoms and maintain safety. Our programs teach mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness skills that improve quality of life. Programming is provided in a supportive yet challenging environment and is customized to each individual’s needs. We are Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS) certified and a nationally accredited provider of DBT.

MHS offers three levels of DBT treatment intensity that include intensive outpatient/day treatment, state-certified standard DBT, and a one day weekly option for clients without significant safety concerns.

Placement is based on assessed medical necessity that includes safety concerns, severity of symptoms, degree of functional impairment, and amount of existing structure and support. We also offer a DBT aftercare program for clients who graduate from a more intensive option.

Wherever you are in your journey, MHS can help. Our DBT program therapists collaborate with your other providers to create a coordinated treatment team for you. To schedule an intake appointment, call 952-835-2002.
