CBT — The Foundation of Sound Addiction Therapy

CBT or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has been considered the gold standard approach in psychotherapy for several decades. The easiest way to understand CBT may be to think of it as “thought coaching”. is like having a coach for your mind. Imagine your thoughts, feelings, and actions are all connected in a triangle. 

What you think affects how you feel and what you do, and each point of the triangle can influence the others. Sometimes, we get stuck in negative patterns where our thoughts aren’t very helpful, leading us to feel bad or act in ways we don’t like. Whether your struggle is with opioids, alcohol, or benzos (or maybe all three) — learning to change how you think and behave is a very valuable skill. 

CBT works by helping you become aware of these unhelpful thoughts and teaching you ways to challenge and change those thoughts. It’s a bit like reprogramming a computer — you learn to replace the “buggy” thoughts with more helpful ones that better serve your best interests. CBT is proven to be clinically effective for people with substance use disorders. 

CBT is a collaborative process, meaning you work together with your therapist to identify the thought and behavior patterns you want to change and then practice new strategies in real life. It’s very hands-on and practical, focusing on solving current problems and teaching you skills to manage your mind better.

CBT is an especially helpful addiction therapy because:

  • It teaches us to identify unhelpful ways of thinking that work against us.
  • CBT gives you tools to change the way you think and respond to situations.
  • It is a collaborative process where you work with your therapist to reach goals. 
  • CBT is the foundation of our addiction therapy model — but only one part of many.

Strength-Based Therapy — Using Advantages to Beat Addiction

Strength-based therapy is an innovative form of addiction counseling that draws out your inner strength and resourcefulness. This makes it different from many other types of addiction therapies which tend to focus on shoring up weaknesses and shortcomings more than building upon strengths. 

At Redemption Recovery, we take a different view. We believe addiction therapy should be well-rounded. It must focus on both reinforcing areas where we need help and building up those areas where we find strength. We believe the strength-based therapy approach is very well-suited to people dealing with addiction because it helps counteract low self-esteem and self-doubt and remove those obstacles to lasting recovery. 

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy — Raising Awareness 

Another of the leading-edge addiction therapies you will encounter at Redemption Recovery is mindfulness-based cognitive therapy. Taking cues from CBT — this highly effective approach combines the awareness of your thoughts (metacognition) with a focus on the present moment. 

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy is especially helpful to people with substance use disorders because it aids tremendously in impulse control and emotional management. Specifically, it helps us think before we act and sit with a powerful emotion before we take action or say something we cannot take back. 

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) 

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a great complement to our strength-based therapy because it emphasizes the positive. Where strength-based addiction therapy focuses on personal strengths you can leverage to build recovery — SFBT focuses on solutions rather than problems. 

In solution-focused addiction therapy, much of your time with your therapist is spent on developing solutions and coping tools that work well for you personally. Rather than a generic set of coping tools you might get at a conventional addiction treatment program in Ohio — you develop a set of solutions tailored just for you. 

Redemption Recovery: A Cut Above The Ordinary Rehab Experience

At Redemption Recovery what you will find is a group of addiction professionals who are willing to “break the mold” when it comes to delivering the most effective care possible. Where conventional treatments, such as CBT, are effective — we incorporate them. But we also invest heavily in newer, evidence-based addiction treatment methods that you won’t find at other Ohio rehabs.
