Because the group is primarily educational, participants are required to be in individual therapy as a condition of group membership. This can be with your current therapist as long as he/she is willing to communicate with us and utilize DBT in your individual sessions. The cost of group is $90 per session at time of service. If requested, you will be provided with a receipt at each session so that you may submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. If you choose to pay ahead for the 8-weeks, the cost will be discounted to $580. (72.50 per session.)
