    Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on the underlying thoughts and behaviors that caused the problem of addiction in the first place and may cause a relapse. Negative feelings are common in substance abuse disorders, and if not recognized, they can cause co-occurring disorders.

    CBT involves strategies that help to change the thinking and behavioral pattern by cognitive restructuring. In simple terms, it helps to remove negative thoughts and provides long-term benefits. Also, CBT promotes self-awareness, self-control, and healthy ways to respond to negative thoughts. It can be administered as a mono-therapy as well as a part of combination therapy.

    When family members are more proactive and involved in the treatment procedure, it encourages the patient to advance his or her progress. Moreover, it shouldn’t be ignored that genetics play a role when it comes to addiction, so it’s better to approach the problem as a unit. Also, with proper education, family members can help an individual avoid addiction triggers and guide him or her in making lifestyle changes necessary for his or her sobriety.

    Group Counseling

Group therapy differs from support groups in two primary ways: group therapy is a kind of psychotherapy and is moderated by a professional therapist at Community Health Services.
