All Crestwood Bakersfield’s clients, regardless of their area of focus, participate in the Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP) treatment model, a self-help recovery system designed to decrease symptoms, increase personal responsibility, and improve the quality of life.

Crestwood Bakersfield offers Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). DBT is a form of therapy developed by Marsha Linehan Ph.D. at the University of Washington that is an evidence-based practice used to treat clients with Borderline Personality Disorder. DBT assists clients in learning skills to help them to regulate their emotional responses to situations that occur in their lives that they may have previously responded to in a self-destructive or aggressive manner.  DBT consists of individual therapy sessions that are held weekly with an individual therapist to review events from the past week, and diary cards that a client keeps daily and follows the treatment hierarchy.  Also weekly 2-5 hour skills training classes are held that focus on emotional regulation skills, mindfulness skills, interpersonal effectiveness skills, and distress tolerance skills.
