Florida Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a therapy of identifying negative, irrational thought patterns which effect an individual's behavior. Typically, these thought patterns always play a role in the creation of an addiction. By breaking the cycle of negative thinking, we help clients discover new behaviors to substitute those that led to and fueled their addiction. Our Florida addiction therapists employ cognitive behavioral therapy to curb old patterns while teaching client's new ones.
CBT has many benefits when it’s integrated into Florida drug rehab. Many of our clients have found that this therapy plays an important role in helping them take corrective-thinking action in the future. Many have also found that CBT can be applied to most other parts of their lives. Numerous research studies suggest that CBT leads to improvement in daily functioning and quality of life. In many studies, CBT has been shown to be as effective as, or even more effective than, other forms of psychological therapy or psychiatric medications. For this reason, CBT is one of the top therapy strategies for clients suffering from alcoholism or drug abuse. It's safe, efficient and treats the whole person.
