The use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is the foundation of our treatment process, which uses convention best practice, and sometimes unconventional individualized methods that will meet the needs of each client.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a psychotherapy that was originally created to help treat depression. It was not long before therapists discovered CBT was helpful in treating addiction. CBT helps you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking. This allows a person to view challenging situations more clearly. Thus allowing them to react to these situations in a more effective way.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a cognitive behavioral treatment that was originally developed to treat chronically suicidal individuals diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. When someone is in active addiction for an extended period of time, they develop certain thought patterns that need to be changed. DBT assists in this process. DBT includes four sets of behavioral skills.

  • Mindfulness: the practice of being fully aware and present in this one moment
  • Distress Tolerance: how to tolerate pain in difficult situations, not change it
  • Interpersonal Effectiveness: how to ask for what you want and say no while maintaining self-respect and relationships with others
  • Emotion Regulation: how to change emotions that you want to change

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a revolutionary therapeutic technique at our treatment center in NJ that is designed to help individuals suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Many addicts will have had trauma in their past that makes it difficult for them to maintain sobriety.
