Mental health is essential to addiction recovery. Studies show that at least half of people living with addiction have co-occurring disorders. Anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, ADHD, and other mood disorders can affect addiction, recovery, and daily life. Unfortunately, many people today lack a diagnosis and proper treatment for mental health. That’s why Northpoint Nebraska puts patients’ mental health at the forefront of recovery with cognitive-behavioral therapy and dual diagnosis.
If you or someone you love in the greater Omaha area is struggling with addiction and mental health, Northpoint Nebraska can help. Call us now at 402.698.3475 to learn more about our addiction therapies.
What Is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy?
Cognitive-behavioral therapy, or CBT, is a behavioral talk therapy that addresses patients’ belief systems, mental health, and behaviors. CBT is the most commonly used talk therapy for addiction recovery because its evidence-based techniques are proven effective.
Cognitive-behavioral therapists provide patients with coping tools and strategies for daily life. They help patients understand, process, and live with difficult emotions and stress. Over time, therapists and patients work together towards positive life change.
Therapists generally meet one-on-one with clients for 60 to 90 minutes at a time. However, CBT can also be used in family and couples’ therapy to change relationship dynamics and open communication between loved ones.
Additionally, therapists give patients new perspectives and homework to practice new coping tools at home. Small daily practices help patients gradually change behaviors. This prevents anxiety, lessens the sense of being overwhelmed, and fosters long-term change. Over time, clients become more independent and see their therapists less frequently. The one-on-one support of CBT can make outpatient recovery feel more stable and individualized.
Outpatient recovery is a great place to start cognitive-behavioral therapy. Patients at Northpoint Nebraska use tools from therapy every night when they leave the clinic and return home. This allows them to try new things and build emotional intelligence every day. Outpatient CBT patients often see faster changes in mood stability, behavioral patterns, and communication.
