Adult DBT Program

Skyland Trail offers a 90-day DBT program for adults ages 18 and older. Clients may admit to residential treatment or day treatment depending on their current level of symptoms and skills.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is proven to be the most effective therapy for individuals diagnosed with borderline personality disorder or struggling with extreme emotions, intense relationships, cutting and self-harm, or impulsive behaviors.

Who We Treat

Our adult programs serve adults ages 18 and older with a primary mood, thought or anxiety disorder. We specialize in treating clients with complex diagnoses and treatment histories including co-occurring borderline personality disorder, psychosis, a history of trauma, treatment resistance, and more.

Adult Program Fees

Adult Residential Program: $33,000 per month

Adult Day Treatment Program: $12,000 per month

Most adult clients participate in the residential level of care for about 4 to 8 weeks before stepping down to the day treatment program. Our residential treatment program is in-network with many plans offered by Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Magellan, Optum/United Behavioral Health/Oscar Health, and Humana Military / TRICARE East*. Families may be able to use out-of-network benefits to cover a portion of treatment costs. Our day treatment and intensive outpatient programs are in-network with a number of private insurance companies. Medicare and Medicaid do not cover our services at any level of care. Financial aid is available to cover a portion of program costs for eligible families.

*TRICARE plans in-network for adult residential treatment for adults ages 18-20 only.
