Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Addiction is a complex brain disease that can change your fundamental beliefs and priorities. Part of recovering from addiction involves learning how to change negative thoughts and behaviors in ways that help you stay abstinent and achieve a healthier lifestyle.
Cognitive behavioral treatment used America’s Rehab Campuses to help you or a loved one experience a healthy, long-lasting recovery from addiction.

What Is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
Cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT, helps you identify and change harmful and dysfunctional thoughts, behaviors, and emotions. CBT helps you view difficult situations in a more clear, rational light, so you can deal with them in ways that are healthier and more effective.
CBT is a common type of psychotherapy that can help anyone learn how to effectively cope with and manage stressful situations. It is especially invaluable and useful to those who suffer from substance use disorders and mental health disorders. Those in recovery from addiction can receive CBT and learn of healthier, more effective ways to cope with stress instead of turning to drugs and alcohol.
What Are the Benefits of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?
CBT for drug and alcohol rehab offers a range of countless benefits for health and mental wellness. This therapy helps you completely modify the way you think about things, so you can focus on the positive side of certain situations instead of the negative.
For instance, rather than using alcohol to cope with feelings of anger and disappointment surrounding not getting promoted at work, you can view this situation as a good reason to improve your work performance. CBT can teach you how to handle situations like these in more rational, productive ways.
Receiving CBT at drug rehab can also help you:
- Become more confident about yourself as you learn how to cope with difficult situations;
- Learn how to relax and stay calm in stressful situations;
- Learn effective, healthy ways to manage stress, such as yoga, meditation, and exercise;
- Learn positive thinking-processes and behaviors that naturally reduce anxiety and depression;
- Gain better control of your anger and other emotions when faced with challenging situations;
- Reduce your risk for drug and alcohol relapse;
- Overcome the emotional trauma that triggered your addiction in the first place;
- Learn how to effectively cope with grief and loss;
- Identify and change behaviors and thoughts that led you to drug and alcohol abuse; and
- Speak openly and honestly about your addiction without facing judgment.
CBT With America’s Rehab Campuses
CBT can take place in either an individual or group setting, or in both settings at drug rehab. CBT may also be combined with other treatments to help you experience a full, well-rounded recovery from addiction. Drug detox, alcohol detox, relapse prevention training, substance abuse education, and family therapy are just some other therapies that may be combined with CBT.
America’s Rehab Campuses offer CBT as part of many addiction treatment programs, including inpatient rehab, outpatient rehab, partial hospitalization, and intensive outpatient therapy. We can customize CBT and other therapies for you or your loved one based on factors such as age, the drug of abuse, and the diagnosis of one or more mental health disorders.
