Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy treatment that is well established in the substance abuse and mental health industry.
CBT focuses on the role of thinking and how it affects how we feel and what we do. CBT treatment aims to help clients control how different thoughts affect thinking, actions, and feelings. Therapists assist clients in diagnosing and correcting flawed thought-patterns that negatively affect behaviors.
Clients who learn CBT develop the necessary skills to prevent mood problems, intrusive thoughts, anxiety, and problematic behaviors. Therapists focus on modifying these negative thoughts and thought-processes to create positive and rational thoughts.
The treatment has been extensively tested and clinically proven to help clients with depression, anxiety, and substance abuse. It helps give clients the mental strength to overcome addictive compulsions like taking drugs.
CBT is based on the client’s cognitive ability and drive to overcome the psychological motivations towards drug and alcohol abuse.
