Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) For Addiction

What Is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on identifying and changing negative thought patterns and behaviors. It is based on the idea that our thoughts influence our emotions and actions.

Through CBT, you learn to recognize and challenge harmful thoughts, replace them with healthier ones, and develop practical skills to manage your feelings and behaviors effectively. CBT is widely used to treat various mental health conditions, including addiction, anxiety, depression, and more.
