Cognitive-behavioral Therapy: What is It?

a man benefits from a cognitive behavioral therapy programCognitive-behavioral therapy addresses problems and difficulties that you may be facing due to your past struggles. In CBT, we use sense knowledge, understanding, and behavioral therapy to give you a more comprehensive treatment. Because of the relationship between your thoughts, actions, and your mental health, an imbalance in one area can create an imbalance in other areas. We can discover this imbalance with CBT.

Primarily, CBT focuses on identifying and naming the negative notion an individual has about themselves. Often this revolves a negative self-image but it can also be an erroneous belief in one’s inadequacy or inability to achieve a goal. These negative conceptions of self impact how people act. They can also feed anxiety disorders and depressive disorders, both of which put a person at risk of developing a substance use disorder to cope. CBT doesn’t just identify negative or erroneous thinking, but actively works to help individuals change their behaviors to be more positive.

Likewise, if you take drugs or drink alcohol in excess, it will affect your thoughts, emotions, and actions. The more drugs you take, the more your thoughts and actions will be connected to your addiction. Eventually, your mental state will fuel your addiction, and your addiction will drive you more deeply into a severe mental condition. That symbiotic relationship between the drug or alcohol and your mental state is what causes dependency.
