Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a fairly common type of psychotherapy. CBT at Wyoming Recovery involves working one-on-one with your therapist (or sometimes in a small group) to work through your addiction and any other mental illnesses you suffer from.
CBT allows you and your therapist to identify issues related to your addiction, like triggers that cause you to use drugs or alcohol. Identifying these things allows you to work through the situations and come up with plans to deal with or avoid situations that lead to problem behavior.
Ultimately, the goal is to change your thought processes and develop tools and skills to help you better cope with your life and your addiction once you’ve completed treatment. Therapy helps you control your illness, so that your illness doesn’t control you.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Dual Diagnosis Patients
For patients also suffering from another mental illness, such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, or post-traumatic stress disorder, CBT is an extremely effective way at getting to the root of the disorder and creating plans and coping mechanisms to help patients deal with their illness.
