CBT treatment

CBT treatment will teach you the coping techniques and methods you need to survive and fight depression. It will make you a stronger person who will not need to turn to substances to escape their problems.

What is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy?

CBT is a highly structured and personalised ‘talking therapy’ that changes negative thoughts, attitudes and behaviours that block recovery.  Our therapists trained in CBT help addicted patients to:

  • Recognise situations involving other people or situations which could lead to relapse;
  • Cope more effectively with their reactions and responses to these situations;
  • Learn how to avoid negative feelings;
  • Address situations in a more positive and assertive manner.

A structured approach to rehab

CBT is a structured approach that works well with many executives and professionals and those who prefer a structured and pragmatic approach to therapy. It is a short-term therapy and fits in well with the time-scale of treatment.  

What happens in a CBT session?

The patient and therapist set an agenda together with goals for the session. The therapist questions introduce coping skills and explores the patient’s reactions.  Patients receive homework exercises which they review and discuss in the following session. It is a personalised, flexible therapy that can be adapted to a wide range of people as well and a variety of settings including group or individual therapy.

CBT helps patients to understand that they must exercise personal responsibility rather than accept the role of the victim.  The dismantling of denial, the development of self-awareness and positive insight into their addiction brings about a major change in attitude.  CBT is the therapy of choice for dual-diagnosis, particularly eating disorders.
