Types of Substance Abuse Treatments
Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychological treatment that has been demonstrated to be effective in helping to treat anxiety, depression, drug and alcohol addiction, eating disorders, and more. CBT takes a hands-on, practical approach to problem-solving. It’s goal is to change patterns of thinking or behavior that are behind people’s difficulties, and to change the way they feel. Various research studies have shown that CBT leads to significant improvements in quality of life.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) for people struggling with substance abuse problems, is a way to achieve self-acceptance while simultaneously accepting the need for change. There are four basic aspects to DBT: mindfulness, interpersonal relations, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance.
Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT) teaches family and friends effective strategies for helping their loved one throughout the treatment process. CRAFT works to affect the loved one’s behavior by changing the way the family interacts with him or her. CRAFT is designed to target three goals:
- When a loved one is suffering from addiction and refusing to get help, CRAFT helps move their loved ones towards treatment
- CRAFT helps reduce the individuals drug or alcohol abuse
- CRAFT helps improve the lives of the concerned family or friends
Seeking Safety – Seeking Safety is a present-focused therapy that helps clients attain safety from trauma (including PTSD) and substance abuse by emphasizing coping skills, grounding techniques and education. One of the main points of seeking safety is to teach clients to feel more safe in relationships, thinking, and action. It is relative to all types of trauma and helps you focus on your personal strengths and better them.
Motivational Interviewing (MI) is a collaborative and goal-oriented treatment practice for strengthening motivation and commitment to a particular goal (recovery). MI pulls from various therapeutic styles and theories such as humanistic therapy, cognitive dissonance theory, therapeutic relationship building, stages of change models, and positive psychology. Together, the client and therapist use reasons for change directed by the patient to address ambivalence and turn the desired goal into reality.
