Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is effective in reshaping the thought process of negative behavior, feelings and actions taken by the client struggling with addiction and/or alcoholism. Often an addict or alcoholic will be riddled with thoughts of obtaining the next fix or drink and once they identify that, they can realize that left to their own devices and thought processes, there will be seldom room for success. The CBT process identifies the incorrect or negative thinking often resulting from the fear and self-doubt that one may be suffering from. Beyond the identification, the correct or positive thought process is provided in order to acquire a quiet, positive mind and peaceful spirit. Arising from this therapy will be rational thoughts, which result in positive behaviors.
