CBT Therapy Designed for Lasting Results

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based form of psychotherapy that focuses on the connection between thoughts, behaviors and feelings. It offers a structured and goal-oriented approach to helping individuals identify and change patterns of thinking and behavior that contribute to emotional distress. 

The idea behind CBT is that thoughts, emotions and behaviors are interconnected, and that negative thought patterns can lead to emotional problems and unhealthy habits. By participating in CBT, individuals can learn healthier ways to think and respond to challenges, leading to improved mental health and well-being.

NJ Recovery Solutions provides CBT to individuals in our program. Not only does it work well for substance use disorders, but also it helps treat the symptoms of mental illness such as anxiety, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

How CBT Works

How Does CBT Therapy Work?

In a nutshell, CBT challenges negative thoughts and feelings. Typically, these thought patterns come from past experiences and environmental factors. They become automatic, causing people to self-medicate with drugs or alcohol to ease their pain. Negative thoughts and feelings are also a main driver of depression and anxiety disorders.

Fortunately, CBT is effective at helping people work through the negative beliefs and insecurities that lead to substance use and mental health disorders. They are taught effective self-help tools, effective communication skills and healthier ways of thinking.

Cognitive behavioral therapy does not stop after the session. Therapists will often recommend specific exercises that individuals can do at home. Examples include:

How CBT is Different

What Makes CBT Different from Other Therapies?

Individual CBT and group CBT are the two most common forms of cognitive behavioral therapy. Even though it is offered in different settings, CBT is unique from traditional individual and group therapy. For instance, individuals do more than just talk in CBT sessions. They actively work with their therapist to challenge automatic negative thoughts and stop the cycle of substance use.

Generally speaking, CBT is a rapid treatment option that produces results in as little as six sessions. It’s also a highly adaptable behavioral therapy, which is why it can be used in individual and group settings, as well as inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation facilities.

Since CBT is hands-on, constructive and engaging, it is included in most recovery plans. Keep in mind that clients are often required to complete activities outside of their sessions, such as by keeping a diary or filling out worksheets.

What exactly is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and how does it work for treating substance abuse and mental health conditions?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on identifying and modifying negative thought patterns that influence behaviors. In the context of substance abuse and mental health, CBT helps individuals understand the connection between their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and develop strategies to change unhealthy patterns. It often involves learning coping skills, practicing problem-solving, and addressing beliefs that contribute to substance use and mental health issues.

Is CBT effective for all kinds of substance abuse and mental health conditions?

CBT is widely researched and considered an effective treatment for a variety of substance abuse issues and mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, PTSD, and more. While it is a powerful tool, it’s important to understand that individual results can vary, and CBT may be used in conjunction with other therapies for the best outcomes.

What should I expect during a CBT session for my substance abuse or mental health condition?

During a CBT session, you can expect to work with a therapist in a structured way, focusing on specific problems and goals. The therapist will guide you through exercises to examine your thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes and explore how they affect your behavior and emotions. You’ll likely receive assignments to practice these new skills outside of therapy sessions. The interactive and practical nature of CBT allows for hands-on learning and adaptation of more functional behaviors.
