05 Jan Leading Benefits of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
There are several different approaches to addiction therapy. While many have proven to be effective as therapeutic platforms, there is growing evidence to support cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) as the premier therapeutic core approach.
With this in mind, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), integrated into its well-known wilderness renewal program, has made Seven Ponds Treatment Center a leader in individualized treatment and renewal. Many people considering addiction therapy are often surprised at the different variations that are available. Educating the community is one of our top priorities, so here are some key facts about the CBT technique.
What is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
Originally, cognitive behavioral therapy was developed to treat depression but has now proven to be extremely useful for patients dealing with addiction, trauma, and co-occurring disorders. In a word, the focus is on our thinking as a cuing mechanism for self-defeating decisions and subsequent behaviors. This means that those in CBT-based treatment programs will discover how to identify the onset of dangerous thinking episodes, and divert negative thoughts from initiating self-defeating behaviors
What to Expect From CBT Treatment
During CBT there are several goals that treatment providers hope to achieve that will promote healing and mental clarity. Some of the key goals of CBT at Seven Ponds Treatment Center include:
- Discovering and connecting habitual thinking patterns that lead to addictive behavior.
- Identifying negative thoughts that trigger addiction behaviors
- Finding out why negative thoughts are occurring
We’d like to point out that this therapeutic model has been found compatible with medication interventions, and as well as reality therapy and ecotherapy.
