Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

CBT | In Addiction Treatment

Cognitive behavioral therapy – Is an addiction treatment environment that allows clients to seek their own spiritual paths without being forced to adhere to beliefs that are not truly their own.  Respect for the rights and beliefs of clients during the spiritual journey is of utmost importance to anyone’s program of recovery.

In order to accomplish this, multiple “tracks” or paths are used to compliment the cognitive behavioral therapy that the client receives. Typical paths include: Faith-Based, Self-Help / 12-step, Cognitive and Holistic.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy | ideal for many different clients:

  1. The client who isn’t receptive to typical 12-step drug rehab programs, nor is comfortable in a Christian Faith-based environment. They may or may not be resistant to spiritual teachings, but are seeking their own path to recovery.
  2. The client who believes that empowerment and overcoming one’s addiction comes from within and doesn’t feel comfortable seeking strength outside of themselves through spirituality. Analytical people who have a tendency to use their mind, willpower, abilities and strengths to over come addiction are an example.
  3. The client who is seeking to enhance their current recovery base with the benefits of understanding their belief systems, triggers and cognitive processes, has a spirituality or belief in spiritual matters.

CBT – track elements that can provide the addict or alcoholic with the enhancement to their drug or alcohol treatment program include:

  • Lectures by recovering addicts, alcoholics and counselors

  • Personal Empowerment

Coupled with the intensive Inventory and Self-Discovery piece of our program, a client can uncover, discover and discard those things in their life which are blocking them off from recovering from their addictions. Removing years of guilt, shame and remorse can reveal the person that they truly are and allow them to continue their life afterward, clean and sober…an empowered being.

Client are typically given the right to choose the path and these spiritual enhancements to their program actually empowers the client and makes their recovery truly their own.  Unfortunately many conventional drug rehab centers tell clients that “if they don’t accept their particular brand of recovery they probably won’t stay sober”.  Our goal is to help the client discover their own recovery tools that will work best for them, and our Self Help track is an effective enhancement to the recovering person looking for recovery through support groups and recovering communities.

Conclusion: In order to create such a successful CBT approach to recovery, counselors from many different modalities of drug rehabilitation play the most crucial role.  These counselors must have experience in 12-step programs, and others Christian faith-based drug treatment programs.  Others have gotten sober themselves through cognitive programs, while others practice their own brand of spirituality.  It’s possible to find a CBT treatment center staff having a thorough mix of Christians, Buddhists, Spiritual Teachers/Mystics and even atheists.
