DBT Outpatient Treatment Program

Finding time for effective treatment outside of your normal life, family, work and school can be difficult. The Clearview Treatment Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) outpatient treatment program in Los Angeles remains a flexible outpatient treatment option that provides the care you need at convenient times for you. Our DBT outpatient program offers both DBT-adherent and DBT-informed tracks. The program also provides treatment for depression, anxiety, substance abuse, psychiatric disorders, including Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), and eating disorders when needed.

When appropriate and in addition to DBT therapy, our DBT outpatient program provides treatment using other evidence-based modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Also, based on a client’s progress, trauma treatment is available. Case management, family and couples therapy, psychiatric evaluation, and medication management are examples of other services offered with the Clearview Treatment DBT outpatient treatment program.

If you require more intensive treatment and support, the Clearview Treatment Programs also offers residential treatment and day treatment programs for DBT, psychiatric and personality disorders, including BPD.

Upon entering our DBT outpatient treatment program, you will be paired with a trained DBT therapist who you will meet with for regularly scheduled individual DBT sessions. You will also participate in regular DBT skills groups and phone coaching outside of the individual DBT sessions.

Your DBT therapist will help you strengthen your DBT skills through learning healthy coping skills and assisting you through homework assignments to support your DBT therapy. Our specialized team of DBT therapists has received training either through UCLA Harbor Hospital’s DBT training program or Behavioral Tech, Marsha Linehan’s DBT training institute.

Outpatient treatment at Clearview Treatment Programs is individualized based on your personal needs and customized to you. Upon admission to our DBT program, you will receive a bio-psycho-social assessment, psychiatric assessment, nutrition assessment, and psychological testing (as needed) to help us better understand your treatment needs and treatment program moving forward.
