Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is an effective form of therapy used to help treat depression, anxiety, personality or mood conditions, and those who struggle with addiction. The theory behind CBT is to help change an individual’s relationship with maladaptive thinking, and promote changes within the maladaptive thinking process.
Being able to identify psychological or addictive related problems as a whole, and begin working on improving critical negative reoccurring behaviors is the primary goal of CBT. If a client is able to successfully identify reoccurring problems and/or behaviors, then focus on strengthening the skills and coping mechanisms directly related to those problems, that individual is more likely to change their overall thinking process.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has proven to be an extremely useful form of therapy with those struggling with addiction and/or co-occurring disorders. Most clients can be evaluated and assessed by our treatment teams to see if CBT would be a correct fit for them.
