IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT GETTING CLEAN, IT’S ABOUT GETTING CLEAR.
JourneyPure’s unique, evidence-based, and integrative approach coupled with the established effectiveness of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) focuses on struggles specific to women with problems regulating emotions and tolerating distress. The core issue of inborn, biological sensitivity can lead to unskillful behaviors such as substance use, self-injury, and suicide attempts. The program begins by teaching skills to replace harmful behaviors and providing a stable environment to get into Clean Mind, while encouraging women to increasingly rely on the deep, inner sense of wisdom within themselves known as Clear Mind.
RESIDENTIAL DIALECTICAL BEHAVIOR THERAPY (DBT-SUD) FOR WOMEN
Voyage is one of only a handful of residential DBT Treatment-to-Fidelity programs in the U.S. for women with Substance Use Disorders (DBT-SUD). Although having a substance use disorder is not a requirement for admission, Voyage includes a specific DBT adaptation targeting this issue. Addictive behavior can come in many forms, not just substance use. The DBT model practiced at Voyage means women are in a home-like environment which adapts it’s schedule and treatment to their specific needs. DBT is designed to treat a variety of issues that can feel out-of-control and hopeless such as disordered eating, Borderline Personality Disorder, suicidal thinking, depression, anger, relationship issues, and anxiety.
