What’s good for one person isn’t necessarily good for another. So often, recovery programs are focused on one method of treatment. A patient checks in and success or failure is predicated upon that approach working with their personality and temperament. A Forever Recovery is different. Different “tracks” are offered like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Patients are encouraged to try all of them upon arriving at the facility to find the right fit.
In this series, we are going to highlight each of the tracks offered at AFR: faith-based, self-help, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and indigenous.
What Other Ways Does Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Help?
In addition to helping in the addiction recovery process, CBT also helps to lessen the effects of other issues. Many people who are suffering from addiction also have an accompanying issue that needs attention.
- Eating disorders
- Anger problems
- Sleeping problems
- Other mental illnesses
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy helps in the treatment of many mental health issues. When somebody has, say, the combination of substance addiction and an eating disorder, CBT can help the individual find the root of both problems and come up with the proper ways to fix them.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a great form of therapy for people who are suffering from substance abuse. It helps them to recognize their thinking patterns and change them into positive ones. With a more positive mindset, people will have more positive behaviors and actions to aid in their recovery process.
