Approaches & Services:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

CBT helps patients recognize, confront, and cope with the thoughts and maladaptive behaviors related to substance abuse. Through CBT, patients acquire self-help techniques. CBT involves a goal-oriented, systematic approach:

  • Identify the thoughts and behaviors that contribute to the pattern of abusing drugs and alcohol
  • Replace these thoughts and behaviors with others that are more realistic, healthy, and productive
  • Restore old social skills that have deteriorated
  • Master a new, effective set of coping strategies to deal with cravings and relapse

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is one of the most widespread and standard forms of treatment offered by Los Angeles and Orange County intensive outpatient and residential addiction treatment programs.
