Cognitive Behavior Therapy
This treatment combines two very effective types of psychotherapy which are Cognitive Therapy and Behavior Therapy. CBT aims at rapid improvement in feelings and moods, as well as early changes in any self-defeating behaviors. It is more present centred and forward looking than other traditional therapies. It alters the way a person thinks cognitively and then has them taking actions that are likely to have a desirable result from the behavioral aspect.
This therapy follows five basic needs: power, love and belonging, freedom, fun and survival. The care principle is whether we are aware of it or not, we are all the time acting to meet these needs. It makes a clear distinction between want and needs and helps a person see the difference. A lot of emphasis is placed on "doing" and is "action orientated".
The 12-Step Model believes addiction is the product of a disease. Treatment emphasizes admitting powerlessness over the substance and adopting the norms and values of a new social group in order to achieve and maintain total abstinence.
This model is based on research in neural science, cognitive psychology, and social learning theory. According to this view substance abuse is the product of biological, psychological, and social factors.
