Cost Effectiveness of DBT Treatment

DBT is a cost-effective treatment. We believe that the statistics below should be shared with your insurance provider to encourage them to reimburse DBT treatment at the highest level possible.

The American Psychiatric Association reported (1998) that in the year of DBT treatment compared to the year of pre treatment:

  • treatment costs decreased by $26,000 per patient ($46,000 to $20,000)
  • reductions of 77% in hospitalization days
  • reductions of 76% in partial hospitalization days
  • reductions in 56% in crisis beds
  • reductions of 80% in ER contacts
