Three Springs DBT, LLC

Welcome to the official website for Three Springs DBT Group of Greenville, LLC. Three Springs is a provider of outpatient mental health treatment serving upstate South Carolina since 2001. Our services and programs are based on Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).

 What is DBT?

Dialectical Behavior Therapy is a cognitive behavioral therapy published in the early 1990’s by Dr. Marsha Linehan of the University of Washington, in Seattle. Research for DBT started 17 years prior to publication as Dr. Linehan began developing a therapy to treat chronically suicidal females. Most of this population met criteria for Borderline Personality Disorder, BPD, which is typified by emotional and behavioral extremes. DBT is the only therapy with multiple clinical studies supporting its effectiveness in treating BPD. Even though the therapy’s original publication focused on its use with BPD, over the years its application has expanded.   

Further studies have shown this therapy is helpful in treating clients with diagnoses such as:

The therapy has been recognized by professionals to have effective outcomes in many settings and many levels of care. It is important to remember that Dialectical Behavior Therapy is not a suicide prevention program, but rather a life enhancement program. Since its publication in 1993 many clients both nationally and internationally, have successfully utilized DBT therapy in creating “A Life Worth Living.”
