“CBT” stands for cognitive-behavioral therapy, a type of psychotherapy or “talk therapy” that helps people identify and replace negative thoughts and behaviors with more positive and useful ones. This type of therapy at Coalition Recovery helps patients gain insight and tools to develop healthy coping skills and modify their negative feelings.
CBT is defined by three different key parts: breathing retraining, education about mental health, and cognitive restructuring. Together and alone, these components offer an effective means to reduce many coinciding issues of addiction like anxiety, negativity, distress, irritability, and physical tension in the body.

CBT is one of the most widely used types of psychotherapies because it can be effective for many psychological and behavioral health issues including:
Cognitive-behavioral therapy can also help you cope with emotional challenges, whether situational or ongoing. Some of the situations when a therapist might suggest CBT include:
Your therapist may combine cognitive-behavioral therapy with other treatment program approaches or types of psychotherapy, depending on your specific struggles and circumstances.
Results can vary depending on how severe the symptoms are, but overall, many experience the full benefits of cognitive-behavioral therapy within five to 10 months. This timeline also depends on how often the therapy is administered. Generally, CBT is used every day in a treatment setting so that the effects will be felt sooner than in an outpatient setting.
CBT is considered to be a short-term type of psychotherapy because you can see results in as little as 10 to 20 therapy sessions, depending on your situation. Continual and daily practice is essential for the natural progression of cognitive-behavioral therapy. The amount you practice outside therapy sessions will directly relate to the benefits of CBT. In other words, like many things in life, you get out of it what you put into it.
