If you relate to this, you may benefit from cognitive behavioral therapy here at Harmony Oaks Recovery Center.
CBT can help you to change your beliefs and thought patterns. It is possible to recover from addictions and mental health issues with the help of this type of therapy. Keep reading here to find out how our cognitive-behavioral therapy program can help you achieve a fulfilling, healthy and substance-free lifestyle.
CBT and Addiction Treatments
Do you struggle with an addiction to drugs or alcohol? You may have started with just a drink or two but now can’t seem to stop at just a couple. You may have started using pain medications due to an injury, but now you use them all the time, even when you aren’t in pain. If you are in either of these situations or any other addictive situation, you aren’t alone.
You may benefit from CBT. Cognitive-behavioral therapy can help you to learn new beliefs about yourself and life. In these therapy sessions and throughout your treatment program, you can learn the following:
- How to improve your overall health
- Gain tips to improve your well-being
- Altering the ways you think about and respond to various situations in life
- Recognizing the negative thought patterns you have
- Using the information you learn to focus on your recovery
- Learn coping skills
The therapist you work with will help you to identify your self-destructive patterns. They can help you figure out how those patterns contribute to your addiction or mental health issues. After you identify these issues, you can work on replacing them with healthy beliefs. The process will take time. However, once you do this, you can start seeing that you deserve greatness in your life. Our team can help you to achieve this.
