What Is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy?

Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a form of talk therapy (psychotherapy) that helps individuals understand the connection between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. It empowers individuals to identify and change patterns of thought that lead to harmful actions such as substance abuse. By learning new skills and strategies, individuals can manage stress, cope with life’s challenges, and maintain long-term recovery.

How a CBT Program Promotes Recovery

CBT plays a crucial role in addiction recovery. Clients in rehab do important work during CBT sessions, including:

  • Identifying triggers – CBT helps individuals identify the people, places, emotions, and situations that trigger substance use.
  • Addressing negative thoughts – Negative thinking can perpetuate addictive behaviors. CBT helps replace these thoughts with more positive and productive ones.
  • Learning coping skills– Clients learn healthier ways to cope with stress, anxiety, and other difficult emotions without turning to drugs or alcohol.
  • Developing a relapse prevention plan – With the help of their therapist, clients create a plan to prevent relapse and maintain sobriety after treatment ends. This may include identifying potential triggers and developing strategies to cope with cravings.

The CBT program at Sophros Recovery Tampa is just one part of our integrated approach to addiction treatment. We believe that addressing both the physical and psychological aspects of addiction is essential for long-term recovery.

Our Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Program in Tampa

At Sophros Recovery, our CBT program includes both group and individual therapy sessions. Our approach goes beyond just addressing substance use. We believe in treating the whole person, taking into consideration all aspects of an individual’s life, including mental health and emotional well-being.

How Our CBT Program Works

Our CBT program at Sophros Recovery begins with an initial assessment, which allows our team to create a personalized treatment plan tailored to each individual’s unique needs. The therapy sessions focus on teaching individuals how to identify negative thought patterns, develop healthier coping mechanisms, and build resilience against future challenges.

Clients who will benefit from CBT engage in therapy alongside other evidence-based methods. They also receive support through:

  • Medication-assisted treatment – When appropriate, our team will develop a plan for medication-assisted treatment to address any withdrawal symptoms, cravings, and underlying mental health conditions.
  • Case management – Our addiction specialists work closely with clients to develop plans that support every aspect of their lives, not just their treatment.
  • Alumni support – We believe in providing ongoing support after treatment ends. Our alumni program connects individuals with resources, events, and a network of peers for continued growth and success in recovery.

Sophros Recovery Tampa makes outpatient treatment available at multiple levels, including day or night treatment and intensive outpatient programs. We also offer outpatient support for graduates who completed a higher level of care at our center.
