DBT Skills Group for Substance Abuse will utilize the 2nd Edition of the Linehan DBT Skills Training Manual which includes handouts specifically addressing substance abuse.  Based on the research by Marsha Linehan and Linda Dimeff, DBT includes skills that can be useful in reducing substance abuse and maintaining abstinence. 

Beth Flack will be leading this DBT group focused on substance abuse treatment.  Beth Flack is a Licensed Psychological Associate and Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist who is experienced in working with the dual diagnosis population, on a TADBiT DBT Team and listed in the TADBiT Therapist Directory. 

For the current schedule of the DBT Skills Group for Substance Abuse, please email Beth Flack at flackelizabeth@yahoo.com.

Fee:  $420 (1 session free) per course or $60 per session.  We will offer one low fee spot.  We will teach all four modules beginning with two weeks of Mindfulness and six weeks of Distress Tolerance.  Each module will be taught in 8 weekly sessions with a one week break in between modules. 

Each DBT Skills Group is facilitated by at least one person who meets the requirements to be listed in the TADBiT Therapist Directory, and the facilitators of these groups have committed to meet the requirements for groups, listed here.

The DBT Skills Groups on this page follow the standard DBT model and focus on female survivors of domestic abuse. For other types of groups, please visit our Find a Skills Group page.
