Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

How Thoughts Influence Your Actions

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) deals with how your thoughts, emotions and actions interact with each other. We believe that your thoughts influence how you feel and what you do. Cognitive behavioral therapy helps you manage and overcome feelings of distress, anxiety, fear or other negative thoughts. This will have a positive impact on your lifestyle, cravings and habits.

Overcoming Negative Thoughts

Our caring team will help you understand your thought patterns and identify where negative thoughts are coming from. You will learn to recognize how and when your thoughts make a negative interpretation of your circumstances that may lead to destructive behavior. Once you are aware of negative thoughts and assumptions, you can retrain your brain to react in a healthy way to difficult situations, triggers or other factors.

Anticipating Difficult Situations

Our caring team will help you understand your thought patterns and identify where negative thoughts are coming from. You will learn to recognize how and when your thoughts make a negative interpretation of your circumstances that may lead to destructive behavior. Once you are aware of negative thoughts and assumptions, you can retrain your brain to react in a healthy way to difficult situations, triggers or other factors.

Prevent Relapse

Another aspect of CBT is developing healthy responses to difficult situations. To do this, we work with you to examine scenarios in which you may experience a trigger (something that makes you want to abuse drugs or alcohol) and develop a personal reaction plan.
These ways of dealing with a particular trigger are called coping mechanisms. When you are aware of potentially threatening situations, coping mechanisms empower you to prevent negative thoughts. This is how you can stop harmful emotions that lead to relapse.

Ensuring a Lasting Recovery

CBT is a key component in preventing a future relapse because it invites you to create and foster a healthy lifestyle. After leaving our facility, you may come face to face with tough scenarios. Cognitive behavioral therapy during your treatment allows you to succeed in these situations, reducing the chance of a relapse.
