Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive behavioral therapy is based on the process of identifying negative, irrational thought patterns which in turn influence a person’s behavior. Unhealthy thought patterns always play a role in the development of an addiction, regardless of whether it’s to drugs, alcohol and other controlled substances. By breaking the cycle of negative thinking, Our Place therapists help clients learn new behaviors to replace those that led to and perpetuated their addiction.
Our Place therapists employ cognitive behavioral therapy as a means to halt old patterns and learn new and practice new ones. Some of the most salient benefits of this highly effective therapy include:
- A Crucial Network of Support
- Development of More Positive Thought Patterns
- Enhancement of Self-esteem
- Learning to Resist Peer Pressure
- Continuity of Normal Activities
- Gradual End to Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has many benefits when it’s incorporated into addiction treatment. Our Place clients in recovery have found that this therapy played a significant role in helping them successfully overcome unhealthy habits and behaviors. Additionally, many have also found that the tenets of cognitive behavioral therapy can be applied with great benefit to other aspects of their life as well.
