Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is mostly used to address problematic feelings or thoughts that will affect sobriety or could contribute to a relapse. CBT is also effective in treating co-occurring or dual diagnosis conditions, such as a mood disorder in conjunction with a substance use disorder.
Biofeedback therapy uses sensors that are placed on the skin to provide treatment professionals biological signs related to stress. Most biofeedback therapy sessions last about 30 to 60 minutes. Sessions are designed to teach emotional regulation.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a type of cognitive behavioral therapy. It was originally designed to treat people with borderline personality disorder (BPD). Research shows that DBT is effective in treating many other disorders including drug abuse, alcoholism, trauma/PTSD, depression, and eating disorders.
