Implementing DBT in Systems

Research shows that DBT is effective at treating a range of behaviors and can be cost effective, yet it can be difficult it can be to affect change on a large scale.

We have extensive experience in helping large systems implement DBT, including DBT in private systems of care, hospital systems, correctional settings, juvenile residential treatment centers, and other county and state systems. Our program implementation model is based on the latest data from the field of implementation science, and we use these principles to guide our recommendations. We will work with you to understand the full picture of your patients’ challenges, your program’s goals, and staff training needs so we can recommend the right combination of services to implement and sustain your DBT progra.
