    A person looking for drug recovery should know that group therapy is an essential tool. Group therapy provides accountability and friendship to people with addiction. It is recommended as a lifetime treatment habit. Group therapy occurs in a group setting as opposed to a one-on-one setting. It benefits patients by providing a feeling of support and letting them know they are not alone. Patients at East Jefferson General Hospital Behavioral Health also learn to build trust and understanding and gain perspective through discussions.

    Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapeutic treatment that is focused on changing negative ways of thinking that contribute to addictive behavior.

    Cognitive behavioral therapy is beneficial for:

    • People who are seeking to overcome addictive behavior
    • Those who struggle with addictive behavior and mental illness
    • People who have a genetic history of addiction in their family
    • Those who don’t want to depend on medications
    • Those who need a more practical treatment approach

    Thinking about nutrition is an odd thing when you’re strung out. You are probably so low physically that all you want to do is sleep, eat comfort food and get high again. It’s hard to imagine having enough energy to care about what kind of food you are eating but think about it. Your body has gone through some severe physical stress, so it is vital to give it the building blocks it needs to recover. It’s equally important to remember that malnutrition can affect your mood and energy level, which affects your desire to get sober.

    If you’re eating right, you’ll have more energy for productive activities, such as going to meetings or being with other sober people in Metairie, Louisiana. You’ll have more strength to fight cravings, and you won’t be so low that they are overwhelming. You will think clearly enough to make sober decisions. Finally, good nutrition helps keep your body strong against the familiar ravages of drug use–tuberculosis, hepatitis, abscesses, infections, etc.—as well as the physical symptoms of withdrawal.

    Nicotine replacement therapy can help addicts reduce or eliminate their cravings for nicotine. By replacing the harmful substances in tobacco with less potent chemicals, most smokers can gradually wean themselves off cigarettes without experiencing intense cravings.

    During these sessions, a therapist will work with the addict to gradually reduce their dependence on nicotine by controlling how much they smoke and providing appropriate breaks between cigarettes. Using this type of therapy in combination with other strategies can help smokers learn how to quit smoking for good and avoid relapse.
