Sandhills Center Announces Request for Proposals for DBT Therapy for Pilot Program

Publication Date: November 28, 2016

Sandhills Center is currently requesting proposals from for-profit and non-profit providers in good standing with the LME/MCO and the Department of Health and Human Services, to implement a Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) pilot program for consumers diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. The goal of the pilot program is to improve client outcomes, as demonstrated by improved Daily Living Activity scores (DLA20) and reduced use of crisis services. Services must be available in Guilford County.

The standard DBT package includes weekly individual therapy, weekly group therapy, 24 hour phone support focused on DBT skills, and peer support/case management. In addition, staff members will participate in weekly supervision conducted by an external clinician with extensive DBT experience.

Sandhills Center will focus on adult consumers (21 years or older) with Medicaid only (not Medicaid and Medicare or IPRS), with borderline personality disorder as the primary diagnosis.
