Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT is a psycho-therapeutic approach that is designed to build trust between the counselor and the client. It has proven to be successful in treating alcohol and drug addiction. CBT is valuable in uncovering underlying emotional disorders and teaching patients to understand that many of their issues stem from their own thoughts rather than outside stimuli. By recognizing this and learning systematic techniques to change, individuals will be more likely to prevent those urges to drink or take drugs in the future.
