Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is one of the most frequently used techniques in addiction treatment because of the high volume of positive outcomes.

What is CBT?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a psycho-social intervention that focuses on helping us change unhelpful thoughts, beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors, improve our emotional regulation and create a suite of coping strategies to help solve problematic issues.

How does CBT work?

When we challenge and change our thought patterns, there is a ripple effect which allows us to change the way we behave and ultimately achieve our goals.

How will CBT Help heal my addiction?

Our licensed therapists will help you learn to identify, understand, and deal with the automatic, emotion-filled thoughts that regularly arise. When we are able to see how closely our thoughts are linked to our feelings, we are able to take actions that alter our experience with the world around us.

What are Cognitive Distortions?

Cognitive distortions are inaccurate thoughts that reinforce negative thought patterns or emotions.
