Traditional therapies include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). It is common for people struggling with addiction to have self-sabotaging or negative thinking. These thought patterns are destructive and changing these harmful patterns is essential to recovery. Traditional therapies such as CBT addresses damaging patterns and helps clients recognize their ability to change their ways of thinking, as well as regulate distressing emotions.
These therapies help clients engage in drug abuse treatment, modify their attitudes and behaviors, as well as increase their life skills to handle stressful circumstances or environmental cues that may trigger intense craving for drugs.
