What Is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy?
Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a common method of psychotherapy. This treatment addresses a wide variety of mental health concerns, including substance abuse. Our cognitive-behavioral therapy program helps each patient understand their condition and create paths for recovery.
Experts in substance abuse and mental health treatment have said that CBT is a valuable form of treatment as it quickly leads to recovery. It helps patients identify, evaluate, and seek support for overcoming stressful behaviors and thoughts, which results in distressing events. For example, cognitive-behavioral therapy can help patients work through problems, such as:
- Family difficulties
- Medical problems
- Job loss
- Relationship problems
However, within the world of substance abuse treatment, cognitive-behavioral therapy also helps the patient understand the link between harmful thoughts and actions resulting from these thoughts. Recognizing and breaking the connection between the thought and the following behavior allows the patient to create a healthier pattern of behavior. As a result, they can lead full lives in recovery.
What Does Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Include?
One of the initial components of our CBT program is a complete analysis of the actions that led to the individual’s substance use. This assessment allows the clinician and client to take a look at the individual’s past and find alternatives to the unhealthy behaviors.
Once the individual has identified what thoughts, emotions, and behaviors have led to substance abuse, we’ll help them develop healthier habits. These practices can lessen the desire to turn to substances in the future. For example, we often recognize that people turn to drugs or alcohol for relief from stress. Through cognitive-behavioral therapy, we assist in providing stress management techniques and relaxation. It also allows them to have tools to rely on when they leave our treatment center.
CBT also allows patients to understand the long-term consequences of substance abuse. In addition, this treatment assists patients in learning how to monitor their state of mind. Doing so can also help them prevent relapse and allow them to dodge high-risk situations, which could lead to drug and alcohol abuse.
