CBT is a psycho-social intervention which was originally designed to treat depression, but has since proved highly effective in treating alcohol and substance abuse disorders.

Rooted in cognitive and behavioural psychology as its name suggests, it takes a practical, problem solving approach towards reaching recovery.

CBT targets information processing, challenges distorted thoughts and maladaptive behaviours associated with drug use and alcohol dependency. It teaches new skills which include allowing you to process your feelings, thoughts and behaviours differently, and shows you how to recognise triggers and how to monitor thoughts and actions in high risk situations.

Our Partnership offers cognitive behavioural therapy in conjunction with other psychological components.  We recognise  that it is not the case that ‘one size fits all’ and we will work with you by looking at your individual needs and circumstances and together we will design a programme of recovery which works best for you
