You have probably heard that your thoughts can determine your behavior. Clients who are struggling with addiction get caught up in behaviors that are not positive as their disease takes over, and they are no longer in control of whether they will drink or use drugs. At that point, the addiction is in control. Behavioral therapy for addiction is an approach where clients learn strategies to examine their thought patterns and the behaviors that have gone along with them to make positive changes.
Recognizing And Changing Negative Thoughts
Thoughts are very quick, and it can be tricky at first to catch the negative ones when they come up. With the help of an experienced therapist, clients at The Dunes East Hampton can learn to recognize the thoughts that have held clients trapped in their negative patterns and that have also helped their addictions to take hold and thrive, sometimes for years.
The first step in making positive changes is recognizing the issue. We teach our clients methods of looking at their thoughts and behavior patterns in a calm and rational way. By taking a step back from their triggers, they have the opportunity to challenge their negative thoughts and decide if they can let some or all of them go.
Focus On The Present
Rather than living with thoughts and influences of past events, specialized addiction treatment therapies teach clients how to stay focused on the “here and now.” Each one of our clients works with a primary treatment counselor on an individual basis. Weekly meetings are held with the entire clinical team so that each client’s progress can be evaluated and the treatment plan can be modified or changed as necessary to keep the treatment plan on track toward reaching the client’s goals.
