Role of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in Addiction

Addiction is well proved  chronic psychological disorder. Sufferer/patient is physically or psychologically dependent on the substance of abuse. Or, it can be said the substance of abuse become integral part of patients life.

So, far lots of medicines and other therapies, to help the patients quit the addiction has been developed. Although medicines has their own important part to play in deaddiction but other important therapy that I find very important role in deaddiction is CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy).

What is CBT?

CBT emphasizes the importance of thoughts, feelings and related behavior. CBT helps to recognize the some particular situations and circumstances that forced patient to addictive behavior. Once the circumstances are establish it become easier to avoid those condition or if the conditions are unavoidable then how to cope with these conditions. CBT also helps to cure or identify some other underlying psychiatric disorder like Anxiety, Phobia, adult ADHD, Schizophrenia. CBT has very crucial role in treating these underlying illnesses.

It is mentioned in almost all religious and spiritual books that our behavior and our feelings are the byproduct of our thoughts. If one can control his thoughts than he can easily control his feelings and improve behavior (here addiction behavior). But to control thoughts first we have to understand thoughts and in understanding this vicious cycle of thought–> feelings–> behavior–>thoughts…………..and so on CBT helps.
