TYPES OF ADDICTION TREATMENTS AND THERAPIES
Addiction therapies include (but are not limited to) the following:
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Maladaptive behavioral patterns are prevalent for those who have an addiction to alcohol or drugs. CBT helps clients to identify and then correct behaviors by applying different skills. This technique helps clients utilize self-control and develop healthy coping skills. It also helps clients identify high risk environments, triggers, cravings, and other experiences that place them at risk for relapse. CBT can be used after treatment and is powerful when combined with medications and other types of therapies.
Community Reinforcement Approach

This approach helps clients to engaged within social networks in the community that allow them sustain recovery long-term. This therapy focuses on family relations, vocational counseling, and the development of a much needed sober social support network. Community Reinforcement helps clients to find a sober lifestyle more rewarding than active addiction or alcoholism. Reprieve does this with an active alumni program, 12-step recovery meetings, vocational counseling, transportation and food assistance, community meetings, and extensive recreational opportunities.

This approach helps clients not to have tunnel vision and look at the bigger picture.
Solution-Focused Therapy: Helps clients move forward by identifying current problems or psychosocial stressors. Clients are taught that the only constant in life is change, small changes lead to big outcomes, and that change occurs more easily when the focus is on the present and future. This approach helps clients to identify and utilize their own resources, skills, and abilities to determine an effective solution.
Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT)
Helps clients identify problematic thoughts and feelings that are both limiting and counterproductive to their growth.
