Athens DBT Center provides a program of comprehensive DBT, through individual and group treatment to anyone experiencing problems managing emotions and related behavioral difficulties.


Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a research-supported treatment that focuses on learning and refining skills leading to more positive behavioral, emotional, and thinking patterns. DBT explores techniques to calm and center thinking. It also teaches specific skills to deal with crises or emotional stress. 

DBT reduces the levels of distress and increases coping in our lives.

Please be aware that DBT requires individual therapy weekly plus attending a skills group (not group therapy, more like a class). We do not provide just individual therapy alone.
