Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is what makes Wasatch Recovery the best place to seek lasting recovery and healing. This type of therapy is typically a one-on-one approach that includes a therapist designing a recovery plan for you or your loved one. Your custom recovery plan is determined by what the therapist uses to accompany the therapy sessions that you will participate in. These sessions become a time for the therapist to understand you or your loved one to better assist in understanding addiction and how to overcome it.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychological treatment that has been demonstrated to be effective for a range of problems including depression, anxiety disorders, alcohol and drug use problems, marital problems, eating disorders and severe mental illness. Numerous research studies suggest that CBT leads to significant improvement in functioning and quality of life. In many studies, CBT has been demonstrated to be as effective as, or more effective than, other forms of psychological therapy or psychiatric medications.
CBT is based on several core principles, including:
- Psychological problems are based, in part, on faulty or unhelpful ways of thinking.
- Psychological problems are based, in part, on learned patterns of unhelpful behavior.
- People suffering from psychological problems can learn better ways of coping with them, thereby relieving their symptoms and becoming more effective in their lives.
The effectiveness of CBT spins from the thing we are most prideful about at Wasatch Recovery: relationships.
