The struggles of addiction can be overwhelming. Therefore, your substance abuse may lead to or be influenced by behavioral issues in your life. Through our Cognitive Behavioral Therapy program, we can discover these issues and help you develop new, healthy patterns of thought.
As a result, you can make better decisions in your daily life that will have a positive impact. In fact, this is a goal-oriented psychotherapy that gives you a practical approach to problem-solving.
Benefits of Our Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Program
In life, you have to make decisions each and every day. These decisions are based on your past experiences, thoughts, environment, social circles, and family. As you begin to develop thoughts and feelings towards one thing or another, you will stick to those thoughts as a coping mechanism to face your fears and problems.
In our Cognitive Behavioral Therapy program, we’ll address these problems and negative thought patterns. You’ll learn how to make more positive decisions, instead of turning to drugs or alcohol for relief.
The principles of CBT are to help you develop new strategies for tackling your day-to-day problems. For example, you may abuse drugs or alcohol as a way to overcome stress in your life. Through a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy program, you will learn to overcome this stress in a healthy, more positive manner. This may include physical activity and fitness, developing new hobbies, or new ways of thought.
