What Is CBT?

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy that focuses on changing negative thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. CBT is a practical part of addiction therapy programs in Tennessee at Nashville Treatment Solutions.

The therapy uses the idea that our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors are interconnected. So, if we can change our thoughts and feelings, our behaviors will follow suit.

CBT is a collaborative process between therapist and client. The therapist will help you identify negative thoughts and beliefs and teach you new, more positive ways of thinking and behaving. Together, you will work on changing how you react to situations that trigger your negative thoughts and emotions.


Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy Is One Puzzle Piece

CBT is just one piece of the addiction treatment puzzle. It’s important to understand that addiction is a complex disease that requires a holistic approach. That means we must treat the whole person, not just the addiction. The treatment programs at Nashville Treatment Solutions use many therapies to help people recover.

Our Unique Therapies

Adventure-Based Therapy

People who struggle with addiction often miss the rush after they get sober. That’s why our adventure-based therapy can be so effective. It produces a natural rush that can lead people to rediscover their purpose, boost self-esteem, and decrease anxiety without relying on alcohol or drugs.

Health & Wellness Therapies

Our whole-person approach puts a high value on both physical and emotional health. This holistic focus is key to a lifelong change. Regular exercise trains the body to heal and maintain properly, while self-care routines are integral to connecting the body and mind during healing.

Family Recovery Programming

Addiction can tear families apart and impact them in ways that many may not be able to see on the surface. We offer group therapy sessions to families who need extra support while they work to repair broken relationships and heal emotional wounds.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is a type of talk therapy. The therapy can help patients develop skills to manage emotions better, cope with stress, and improve relationships. It’s an effective treatment for struggling people with severe mental health symptoms and addiction.

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a talk therapy many counselors use in addiction treatment. This technique reteaches the mind how to process recurring thoughts and reframe them in a way that makes them more understandable.

Trauma Intervention & EMDR Therapy

Our trauma-informed therapy focus helps people who have experienced trauma process their emotions more healthily. Clients can begin recovery while managing stressful triggers with several treatments, including eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).

Medication-Assisted Therapy

Some struggles with addiction can be incredibly complex to manage. Our medical professionals can prescribe healthy, helpful medication treatments like Suboxone and Vivitrol to increase the chances of a successful recovery.

Community-Focused Recovery

Rebuilding relationships and establishing new connections can build an essential support system for people in recovery. Our therapies work to help each of our clients develop and strengthen bonds with those who will support them in their sober life.

Support Group Introductions

Support groups, including those based on a 12-step approach like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), are integral to recovery. Many of our staff are in recovery and regularly attend meetings, so our approach helps introduce our clients to the benefits of organized support groups.


Why Does CBT Help Treat Addiction?

CBT is one of the most popular methods for treating addiction because it has proven to be an effective tool in recovery. Every person will have a different recovery journey, but CBT can fit into many of them because it can help:

  • Address the root causes of addiction
  • Change negative thinking patterns
  • Develop positive coping mechanisms
  • Improve communication skills
  • Promote healthy decision making
  • Learn stress management techniques

CBT’s primary goals are to help people become more aware of their thoughts and feelings and how they affect their behavior. This type of therapy can also help people develop skills to cope with difficult situations more positively.

How Does CBT Fit Into a Therapy Plan?

Many therapists will use cognitive-behavioral therapy in individual and group settings. During individual sessions, a therapist will help a client identify negative thinking patterns and work to reframe them. In group settings, clients can share their experiences with others going through similar journeys.

A CBT program usually lasts 12 to 16 weeks, but some people may need more or less time depending on their progress. Some people may also need booster sessions after completing the initial therapy plan.
