In this short video, Kevin Braga, LCSW discusses one of the therapy groups he leads at The Center for Optimal Living.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) helps individuals who would like to improve their ability to manage emotions, tolerate distress and communicate more effectively with others. Problematic behaviors such as substance use evolve as a way to cope with a situation or as an attempt to solve a problem. While these behaviors might provide temporary relief or a short-term solution, they are often ineffective in the long-term. Clients in the DBT group will learn valuable skills such as mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness techniques that can be applied in daily life and have been shown to have long-lasting effects in the treatment of addiction.
