Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a form of therapy that focuses on helping you identify and change negative thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to addiction. It is a highly effective treatment approach that can help you develop new coping skills and strategies for managing your addiction.

At Surf City Recovery, we incorporate CBT into our addiction treatment program in several ways. First, we use CBT as a way to help you understand the underlying thought patterns and behaviors that contribute to your addiction. We can then work with you to develop new, healthier thought patterns and behaviors that support your sobriety.

CBT is also used as a tool for relapse prevention. You are taught to identify triggers and high-risk situations that could lead to relapse, and learn strategies for managing these situations without turning to drugs or alcohol.

Another way that CBT is used in addiction treatment is through the development of new coping skills. You learn new coping strategies that help manage stress, anxiety, and other emotions without turning to drugs or alcohol.

At Surf City Recovery, our addiction treatment program is personalized to meet the unique needs of each person. This means that the CBT techniques we use will vary from person to person depending on their individual needs.

One benefit of CBT in addiction treatment is that it is a short-term treatment approach that can yield long-term results. Many see significant improvements in their addiction symptoms after just a few weeks of CBT.

CBT is also an evidence-based treatment approach, meaning that it has been scientifically proven to be effective in treating addiction. This gives people confidence in the treatment approach and can help them stay motivated in their recovery journey.

At Surf City Recovery, our addiction treatment program also includes other evidence-based treatment approaches such as motivational interviewing, dialectical behavior therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy.
