We’ve all been there. We have allowed our minds to get caught up in negative emotions and thoughts which have led to even worse behaviors. However, when these negative emotions and thoughts overrun our lives, they can lead to destructive patterns or substance abuse. A cognitive-behavioral therapy program seeks to challenge the negativity in our minds through positive and powerful therapy sessions.
Sunstone Recovery offers addiction treatment programs for substance abuse and mental disorders. Through group counseling and an individual therapy program, you can get the treatment you need to overcome the negative elements in your life. Our caring and trained professionals can guide you from addiction to recovery through cognitive-behavioral therapy.
What is a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Program?
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that reverses your negative thought patterns and restructures the way you think by focusing on positive and happy emotions, behaviors, and thoughts. While the concept seems simple, our approach is evidence-based and results in proven success.
CBT focuses on finding solutions that challenge your distorted cognitions so that you can change your destructive behavior patterns. It is an effective means of helping you overcome your addiction, which is naturally based on negative and crippling thoughts. For instance, you may be feeling that you are “too far gone” to battle your addiction. Your current circumstance may reinforce this viewpoint. However, the truth is that it is never too late to break the cycle of addiction.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy aims to identify the harmful thoughts inside you and help you see that they are not always based in reality. As you’ve heard before, much of the negativity really is all in your mind. This can be a liberating and empowering revelation that helps you take the first step toward real recovery. Next, targeted addiction therapy sessions target the roots of your addiction, so you can identify where these negative emotions stem from. Once identified, further sessions focus on long-term planning and coping skills that will help you maintain your recovery.
Including CBT in Your Substance Abuse Treatment Plan
When combined with other forms of substance abuse treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy offers a more holistic approach to therapy that heals your mind body and soul. Sunstone Recovery provides CBT in addition to other treatments that we offer such as:
- Family systems therapy
- Group addiction counseling
- Individual addiction counseling
- Holistic addiction therapies
Continuing evaluations help you decide which types of treatment best fit your needs.
Change Your Thinking with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
The strategies we use at Sunstone Recovery have been used to treat a broad range of addictions and mental health challenges. We can help you identify and combat unrealistic or destructive thoughts while replacing them with problem-solving skills. It is a form of what we call ‘talk therapy’ that we use in our Bend, Oregon substance abuse treatment center.
You can change your thinking by gaining insight into your own brain processes and how they influence your behavior. You can also learn how to modify your behavior constructively. While this takes practice at first, we provide full support and encouragement until positivity becomes more natural than negativity.
