ACT is a third-wave cognitive behavioral therapy that integrates mindfulness, acceptance, and committed and valued action as the way to deal with substance use and co-occurring mental health disorders. ACT utilizes the psychological flexibility model of therapy which targets six core processes of change. ACT has been researched in over 600 randomized controlled trials and has been found to effectively treat a wide variety of problems including but not limited to: depression and anxiety, substance use disorder, chronic pain, and many others. The goal is to help participants in treatment be able to step up to the challenges life brings in a way that doesn’t require elimination of negatively perceived thoughts and feelings.
DBT is an extensively researched method of teaching behavioral skills that increase mindfulness, emotional regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. DBT skills are a core part of the ki®RC treatment program because of the scope and breadth of application to the problems clients face. In other words, by teaching practical and evidence-based skills, clients are better able to problem solve and/or tolerate painful experiences in life without the need for drugs or alcohol. DBT provides a practical approach to balancing the need for clients to aim at total abstinence, while also planning their response should relapse occur.
