Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) encourages clients to question and examine recurring thoughts in order to phase out those that are negative and unhealthy.
CBT can be applied in the treatment of many different types of problematic substance use.People treated with CBT techniques learn to recognize and change their maladaptive behaviors.
CBT can help people with coping skills, with identifying risky situations and what to do about them, and with preventing relapse.
This approach is helpful because it can be paired with other techniques. The skills learned through CBT continue to be of benefit long after the initial therapy, and it can be used to treat co-occurring mental or physical health disorders as well.
