About Drug Addiction

The condition affects individuals and families across

the United States and the world. Drug addiction

changes brain function and affects all areas of life.

Relationships with family members and friends are

damaged, friendships are affected and there is also

addiction may cause loss of employment and absences

from school with a subsequent drop in grades. Family

members worry constantly about the safety and physical

condition of their loved one and are always in fear of

what might happen next.

Drug and alcohol addiction causes both physical and

suffer from anxiety or panic disorders. The sooner

treatment begins, the better the outcome can be. When

Therapy In Treatment

Therapy can be a hugely helpful part of a person’s

treatment. One of the best forms of therapy for those

struggling with substance abuse in Cognitive Behavioral

Therapy (CBT).

CBT can be done one-on-one with a clinician or as part

of a group supervised by a clinician. CBT teaches a

patient to replace negative thoughts with positive ones by

redirecting old recurring thoughts into new channels that

lead to a healthier outcome. Patients also learn how to

cope with drug cravings and develop strategies to avoid

drugs and prevent relapse. Subjects for discussion will

include a person’s job, any legal difficulties and most

importantly, relationships with family and friends.
