Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a major component in substance abuse treatment within our network of recovery addiction treatment centers. The foundation of this treatment method has been developed and perfected by some of the greatest minds in psychology. Proven to be an effective tool in treating drug and alcohol addictions, our network utilizes this treatment method as a strong foundation to long term recovery.
CBT focuses on positive thought patterns, attitudes, and beliefs about one’s self. Drug abuse tends to put the patient in a negative mind space that breeds negative thoughts, intensifies feelings of guilt and shame, and encourages suicidal tendencies. There is potential in everyone that walks through a facility’s doors and bestowing the knowledge of CBT therapy can redirect the patient’s mind toward positive thinking and long term goal setting.
Having a positive mindset about yourself and your recovery will help you through the hard times. CBT provides procedures for adopting healthy coping mechanisms and handling stressful situations like cravings, triggers, and depression.
By educating people about the psychology of addiction and identifying triggers that could cause relapse, the patient is given the tools to maintain sobriety throughout his or her entire life.
