Definition Composed by Our Patients

Dialectic Behavior Therapy is for people with Borderline Personality Disorder, substance use disorders, and binge eating disorders.  It helps individuals learn how to regulate strong emotions more effectively.  DBT teaches coping skills and different tools so a person can line a more healthy and stable life.  The end goal is to have a life worth living.

Summary from The National Institute of Mental Health

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), a form of CBT, was developed by Marsha Linehan, Ph.D. At first, it was developed to treat people with suicidal thoughts and actions. It is now also used to treat people with borderline personality disorder (BPD). BPD is an illness in which suicidal thinking and actions are more common.

The term "dialectical" refers to a philosophic exercise in which two opposing views are discussed until a logical blending or balance of the two extremes—the middle way—is found. In keeping with that philosophy, the therapist assures the patient that the patient's behavior and feelings are valid and understandable. At the same time, the therapist coaches the patient to understand that it is his or her personal responsibility to change unhealthy or disruptive behavior.

DBT emphasizes the value of a strong and equal relationship between patient and therapist. The therapist consistently reminds the patient when his or her behavior is unhealthy or disruptive—when boundaries are overstepped—and then teaches the skills needed to better deal with future similar situations. DBT involves both individual and group therapy. Individual sessions are used to teach new skills, while group sessions provide the opportunity to practice these skills.

Research suggests that DBT is an effective treatment for people with BPD. A recent NIMH-funded study found that DBT reduced suicide attempts by half compared to other types of treatment for patients with BPD

Mobile Medication Program (MMP) is a home visiting medication support, education, and skill-building initiative serving adults with sever psychiatric illness that have trouble remembering to take their medications. Program participants receive brief, yet frequent home visits from MMP staff, intended to model the routine and consistency of taking medications. Eventually, these visits are reduced from multiple visits per day, to daily, three times in a week, twice a week once a week, and finally to weekly check-in phone calls as participants develop skills and take ownership of their medication regime. Most participants progress through the program within six months.

Though MMP does not supply medications or make medication payments, staff help link participants with outpatient medical homes, assist with enrollment in health insurance and medication assistance programs, and work with prescribing physicians to reconcile medication plans. MMP staff also spend significant time identifying barriers to medication adherence and setting goals with participants at intake. At discharge, participants will be equipped with the skills and education necessary to manage their own medications independently.

Psycho Social Rehabilitation is designed to help members learn skills that will help them live in the community without hospitalization.  While in the program, individuals learn daily living skills, socialization skills, educational skills, vocational skills, and how to organize their lives.

Those eligible for the program have to have an Axis I mental health diagnosis and they have to have impaired role functioning that adversely affects at least two of the following: employment, management of financial affairs, ability to procure needed public support services, appropriateness of social behavior, or activities of daily living.

The person’s level of functioning may indicate a need for psychosocial rehabilitation if the client has unmet needs related to recovery and regaining the skills and experience needs to maintain personal care, meal preparation, housing, or to access social, vocational and recreational opportunities in the community.

Philosophy of the Program

The Psychosocial Rehabilitation Program (PSR) is a therapeutic treatment modality that provides rehabilitation for behavioral disorders.  The program is designed to provide interventions for individuals to improve behavioral skills related to barriers affecting how they integrate into society.  This is accomplished by having a safe and empathetic place to practice skills in socialization, daily living and community access.  This in turn affords individuals the skills needed to increase the level of success to move forward with opportunities to improve housing, vocations, education, independent living, reduce paid supports, increase unpaid supports and have better relationships to name a few.  The program philosophy is best summarized by the proverb “if you take someone fishing you fed them a meal, if you teach one to fish you feed them a life time.”  Too often individuals functioning within a system to control safe behaviors results in specific loss of self motivation and confidence.  The focus of PSR is to give those individuals with the ability to show behavior control the skills to function in society at the least restrictive environment possible, with the motivation and confidence to at least try.

The dynamics of the PSR program is within its own rights a peer support system.  The staff of PSR monitors and assists in therapeutic boundaries between individuals to help assist them in appropriate interactions and safety.  All individuals are encouraged to participate in self-help groups of specific desires of the individual such as churches, services for aging and AA or NA to establish healthy peer groups.  Participation in community mental health specific meeting such as NAMI are also encouraged.  Daymark provides information and pamphlets concerning local, regional and statewide advocacy groups. We coordinate information about program availability with NAMI, and made an effort to encourage consumer participation in programs related to their specific recovery issues.  Professional Peer Support Specialists employees are integrated into the PSR services at some locations when appropriate and available

Programs operate Monday thru  Friday , generally 8 am – 4 pm
