In this A-Z Guide, we aim to inform you about the use of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) in the treatment of drug and alcohol addiction. At Cassiobury Court, our alcohol rehab centre utilises CBT in the fight against addiction. CBT focuses on altering your thought patterns and resulting behaviours. In fact, CBT is used to treat a wide range of mental health problems including depression, anxiety disorders (social anxiety, panic disorder and post-traumatic stress), eating disorders as well as substance misuse.
What is CBT?
CBT seeks to break down psychological problems into smaller components, often trying to identify certain problematic thoughts and behaviours. Once these problematic thoughts have been broken down, CBT offers a straight forward way for your therapist to intervene and promote your recovery. You will also learn new techniques that make it less likely for you to face these identified psychological problems in the future.
