Cognitive behavioral therapy is an evidence-based psychotherapeutic technique used to treat a range of addictive disorders. At Pine Tree Recovery Center, cognitive behavioral therapy, also known as CBT, is one of the key therapeutic techniques we teach our clients. CBT helps individuals re-write negative thought patterns, master their emotions, change destructive behavioral patterns and challenge ideas that no longer serve them.
While we do introduce some of the basic concepts of CBT in our medical detox program, we primarily teach CBT in our intensive outpatient program (IOP). IOP is a flexible form of treatment that allows individuals to go to work, attend school and engage in their day-to-day lives while attending treatment four days a week. Our IOP program includes individual, group and family therapy, relapse prevention training, holistic practices, recovery education, health and wellness seminars and 12-Step work. CBT is taught in both individual and group therapy.
