Colorado DBT Treatment Center for Girls

DBT Therapy for Girls from Colorado

Evangelhouse DBT Treatment Center for Colorado Girls incorporates DBT into the daily routing. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has been found to be particularly effective for individuals, including girls, with various personality disorders. Girls with personality disorders often struggle with intense and fluctuating emotions. DBT places a strong emphasis on validating and accepting these emotions without judgment. This validation is crucial for individuals who may have experienced invalidation in the past, fostering a sense of understanding and acceptance.

DBT is known for its practical and skill-based approach. It equips individuals with concrete skills to manage and regulate their emotions, improve interpersonal relationships, and cope with distress. For girls with personality disorders, who may face challenges in emotion regulation and interpersonal effectiveness, these skills are invaluable in navigating daily life.

Mindfulness Techniques:

At Evangelhouse DBT Treatment Center for Colorado Girls, we teach that mindfulness is a core component of DBT. Through mindfulness techniques, individuals learn to stay present in the moment, observe their thoughts and emotions without becoming overwhelmed, and make informed choices. This can be especially beneficial for girls with personality disorders, helping them develop a greater awareness of their emotions and reactions.

Many personality disorders involve difficulties in forming and maintaining healthy relationships. DBT addresses this through interpersonal effectiveness training. Girls learn communication skills, boundary setting, and strategies for building and maintaining positive connections with others.

Girls with personality disorders may be at an increased risk of engaging in self-harming behaviors or experiencing suicidal thoughts. DBT includes specific modules that address these issues, providing girls with alternative coping mechanisms and a structured approach to managing crises.

Research has shown that DBT is effective in the long term for individuals with personality disorders. This is crucial for sustained improvement and preventing relapse. The comprehensive nature of DBT, addressing various aspects of mental health, contributes to its long-term effectiveness.

DBT’s effectiveness for girls with personality disorders lies in its validation-oriented approach, practical skill-building, mindfulness techniques, interpersonal effectiveness training, acknowledgment of dialectics, and the provision of a structured and supportive therapeutic environment. These elements work together to empower individuals to navigate the challenges associated with personality disorders and improve their overall quality of life.

    Residential Help for Girls Who Need DBT 

    Evangelhouse is a residential treatment center for teen girls from Colorado with depression and related issues including trauma, anxiety, and behavioral issues. Depression is generally a more common, and potentially more impactful illness than most girls realize. Research tells us that an estimated 3.2 million teenagers in the United States experienced at least one major depressive episode. It’s no surprise that quality treatment options like Evangelhouse Residential Treatment Center are in demand. Current statistics tell us that approximately 13% of teenagers will experience clinical depression before they reach adulthood.

    At Evangelhouse DBT Treatment Center for Colorado Girls, our students are included in a close-knit peer group. We limit our total census to just 16 girls at a time. Also, with the absence of smartphones, our girls learn how to express themselves and their frustrations face-to-face, not through a screen. Overuse of electronic devices may be preventing young people from hobbies, religion, sports, friendships, and socializing, which might help them avoid depression in the first place. 

    Individualized programming that is focused on age, gender, and the needs of each student is the focus of Evangelhouse RTC. In addition to teaching our girls therapeutic skills for coping with depression in daily life, Evangelhouse RTC incorporates medication management under the supervision of a licensed psychiatrist.

    This school literally has given my daughter her life back and has given us the tools to help her and herself into the future. This is a full circle, all encompassing program. From admission to graduation. Do not delete this school from your list! I almost did because it was far away...and...to be honest, I wasn't sure how I felt about a "Christian" school. Whether you are religious or not, don't be put off or think your child is going to be brainwashed. She's not! It is a part of the day and I thought my daughter would hate it (and so did she). But it turns out she found great comfort there and her faith! I thoroughly investigated this school. In addition to my own research, I also hired a company that researches and screens these types of programs. I also had my daughter's psychiatrist interview the director! I've done all the researching and investigating for you. Whatever your daughter's issues may be, I probably have them covered! My daughter's diagnosis' range from ADHD, Anxiety, High Risk Behavior, Adoption issues/trauma and psychosis. Do not waste your time. Don't wait for Spring or end of school or whatever timeline. Act now! The happiest day of my life was delivering her to the ECA. I actually slept for the first time in years. Knowing my daughter was finally getting the help she so deserved. Therapy, school, socialization, faith, responsibility, accountability, self-worth and confidence. We all ask or pray for help. Consider ECA as prayers answered.

    I graduated from ECA 4 years ago, and I can genuinely say that this place is truly amazing. It can and will help your daughter if she wants to put in the work. The staff and the girls I was with all made me feel like family and that I mattered. This place really saved my life, so if you are looking for a place that will help your daughter please send her here, I promise they will take care of her.

    We had a troubled teen. I found ECA online. I made a call and set up a visit. We were looking for a place that included God and biblical principles in their program. Now that our child has finished the program, WOW! Thank you ECA leadership. Every one on staff believes in the program. It shows! and it works!!

    This school has been an absolute Godsend for my daughter and our family. We realized a few months ago that she needed residential treatment. After an exhaustive search, we found the wonderful people at Evangelhouse. They do an amazing job keeping parents updated and are always available when we call. I have been impressed with the way that they are firm with the girls but also loving and caring. The process there is amazing, especially since it involves the family also. We were so happy to find a place that provides professional counseling with a Christian focus.

    Two years ago we were struggling to get our daughter on the right track. We had tried everything and knew that she would need to be placed in a residential treatment facility. We had searched for at least a year to find the right place. Were looking for a Christian, all girls, small, therapeutic program not too far from Texas. Somehow, someway, God lead us to the Evangelhouse website. We are so glad that we took his direction because it has meant a world of difference for our daughter, our family, our marriage, and our peace of mind! Evangelhouse has taken a once broken, low-self esteem, miserable, self-centered, hostile, angry, self-doubting teenager in crisis and changed her into a Christ-centered, selfless, self-loving, servant-hearted, mature, sensible, responsible, thoughtful young adult. ECA implements a program that strips each student down to the bare necessities in order for them to focus on what is truly important in life. I don't know where we would be without ECA. I now know what it is like to have a functional, happy, and peaceful family life.
