Admitting you have a substance abuse problem takes courage.

However, at Amatus Recovery Centers, we’re proud to provide individualized care. In other words, we design a treatment plan that addresses your unique challenges. In some cases, this treatment may include cognitive-behavioral therapy. The treatment plan we create will be right for your needs and will be geared toward helping you find the answers you seek.

About Our Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Program
Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a widespread form of psychotherapy that addresses a range of mental health challenges. A typical cognitive-behavioral therapy program is designed to help you see situations far more clearly.
Many mental health treatment experts consider CBT to be a “preferred” form of treatment because it can lead to very rapid breakthroughs. The focus of a cognitive-behavioral therapy program is on helping you spot, assess, and reframe unhealthy or harmful thoughts and behaviors in your life.
CBT comes into play with addiction in the same way. Some struggling from substance abuse will make links between specific thoughts and corresponding actions that follow. Understanding those links and putting sound coping mechanisms in place is part of a cognitive-behavioral therapy program. These tools can help an individual to avoid substance use in the future.
How Can Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Support Addiction Recovery?
When someone is suffering from addiction, their mind becomes unhealthy as it processes negative thought patterns, cravings, and volatile emotions. Each of these elements works together and changes the way the individual relates to the world around them. These challenges also affect the way the person sees their substance use. When these elements combine with preexisting mental health concerns or unhealthy behavior patterns, they can fuel the individual’s drug or alcohol use and make it more difficult to stop using the substance.
As someone begins their journey to recovery, they must learn to manage their thoughts and emotions without turning to substances. In many cases, this can be difficult. However, through cognitive-behavioral therapy, we can help the individual identify the thoughts and behavior patterns that led the individual to return to substance use in the past.
Everyone battling addiction has a range of unique challenges that have led them to abuse substances. Fortunately, with the help of our cognitive-behavioral therapy program, it is possible to help them cope with these challenges. Cognitive-behavioral therapy offers a range of benefits, including:
- Allowing an individual to heal from trauma
- Helping clients create coping skills to manage stress
- Providing healthy ways to manage emotional distress
- Assisting in relationship resolutions
- Strengthening communications skills
- Allowing a person to recover from loss or grief
- Reducing and managing symptoms of mental health conditions
- Preventing relapse
As someone participates in cognitive-behavioral therapy, they gain a greater understanding of themselves and any underlying mental health conditions.
