What Is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Addiction Recovery?

Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a common type of behavioral talk therapy. As the name suggests, behavioral therapies address a client’s belief systems, thought patterns, overall mental health, and daily behaviors. CBT is the most common talk therapy for addiction recovery because it helps clients change their behaviors at a pace that works for each client’s unique needs. During sessions, CBT therapists provide clients with coping tools, exercises, and stress management strategies for daily life. Over time, they work together to stop self-harming behaviors and thought patterns.

At La Fuente, we use CBT tools in our individual, group, and family therapy sessions to improve understanding, emotional intelligence, and communication. With dual diagnosis, CBT can help manage mental health disorders like anxiety and depression while also providing vital mental health education to clients and their loved ones. Sessions with a CBT therapist last anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes, depending on a client’s needs and recovery program.

Benefits of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Addiction

CBT is popular among addiction therapists because it is a gentle form of talk therapy that works. Over time, clients become more independent, confident, and secure in their needs. Cognitive-behavior therapy provides a consistent, client-paced support system to help clients manage stress, fear, and negative thought patterns.

At La Fuente, our CBT therapy programs provide clients with individualized and community care geared towards the needs of LBGTQ clients. Our therapists help clients with the following:

  • Overcome negative beliefs
  • Understand personal behaviors
  • Build stronger communication skills
  • Understanding mental health and mental health disorders
  • Relapse prevention
  • Building personal schedules
  • Setting and meeting goals
  • Managing daily stressors
  • Establishing and setting effective boundaries

Whether clients join our residential or outpatient treatment programs, CBT can help them reduce addiction triggers, build self-care skills, and prioritize sobriety.
