Most state public systems now require DBT as the standard of care for borderline personality disorder. But the methodology of DBT has been found through both practice and research to be more robust. It is acuity, not diagnosis, that defines when DBT is applicable. DBT treats the clients that we find most difficult to treat in private and public practice.
