Cognitive behavioral therapy in addiction treatment

Through cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), our counselors help individuals replace negative patterns of thinking and behaving with more productive thoughts and actions. CBT guides those struggling with alcohol or drug addiction to recognize irrational thoughts and to create rational replacement thoughts.

CBT Skill development focuses on:

  • Coping with craving
  • Strengthening motivation and commitment to sobriety
  • Refusal skills/assertiveness
  • Creating an all-purpose coping plan
  • Problem solving

Marworth uses targeted support groups to help people who’ve had past trauma. Our team can help with these trauma symptoms:
