What Is a Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Program?

Cognitive-behavioral therapy, or CBT, is an evidence-based psychotherapy that helps people explore the connection between their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. This popular therapy helps treat a wide variety of mental health disorders, including anxiety, depression, PTSD, phobias, and substance use disorders.

CBT requires guests to pair up with a psychotherapist or therapist for a preset number of sessions. Here, they learn how to recognize and increase their awareness of unhealthy, dysfunctional, inaccurate, or distorted thought patterns that often pave the way to destructive or self-defeating behavior. It includes those behaviors that lead people to use.

Negative thought patterns often aid people in their use of addictive substances, which is why recovering users must change how they think. A change in thinking and feeling likely will result in changing how one behaves. Awareness develops, and a desire to correct adverse thoughts follows.

Benefits of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy

Individuals who participate in cognitive-behavioral therapy may experience the following benefits as a result of treatment:

  • Learn to manage negative thought patterns and feelings in a healthier way
  • Learn to manage anger and other powerful emotions in a healthier way
  • Learn how to communicate effectively with others and themselves
  • Improved, new, and healthy coping mechanisms replace old, harmful ones
  • Access to professional care and support, as well as educational resources

How could cognitive-behavioral therapy help you? An effective CBT program can be truly life-changing for someone who is open to actively participating and receiving help.

How Does Harmony Hills Use Our Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Program?

When you contact Harmony Hills, we will determine what mental health treatment therapy programs will work best for your healing and recovery. During your admissions process, one of our team members will sit down with you and discuss your goals for treatment. We may ask you about your medical and substance abuse history, discuss your relationships, and ask about your current situation. We do all of this to create a treatment plan based on your unique needs. Because you are different from other people who come to Harmony Hills, your treatment plan will also be distinctive. If we determine that you may benefit from a cognitive-behavioral therapy program, we do so knowing how effective this treatment is.

In cognitive-behavioral therapy, we assist you in creating problem-solving skills, allowing you to cope with life’s challenges. These challenges may come along both inside of treatment and outside treatment. Still, with the skills you create during our cognitive-behavioral therapy program, you can handle whatever comes your way. CBT also encourages you to choose alternatives to drugs and alcohol, allowing you to stay healthy or sober for longer periods of time.

During your sessions at our cognitive-behavioral therapy program, we’ll help you spot negative thoughts, emotions, and behavior patterns. At the same time, we’ll help you create coping mechanisms to overcome them and help you develop new habits to replace the harmful ones. With the help of our CBT program, you’ll be able to communicate your thoughts, feelings, and emotions better. You’ll also be able to cope with grief, move on from emotional trauma, and rebuild relationships that mental health concerns have damaged through trauma therapy programs. In short, we give you the tools you need to heal.
