Inner Voyage Recovery offers Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in Atlanta for addiction and drug recovery.Our CBT therapists are problem-focused and goal-directed as they work together with clients in a collaborative, supportive environment to address challenging symptoms of mental illness and addiction.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) helps clients examine the relationship between thinking, feeling, and action. In these sessions, clients learn to identify the self-defeating thoughts and overwhelming emotions that often drive addiction.
By breaking down the patterns of thinking that lead to self-destructive behaviors, clients can modify their thinking and improve coping skills to build a healthier, happier life without drugs or alcohol.
During cognitive-behavioral therapy, our therapists help clients address problematic thoughts and feelings to help overcome addiction. In addition to treating substance abuse disorder, CBT is an effective treatment for co-occurring disorders like anxiety, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), eating disorders, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Inner Voyage Recovery cognitive-behavioral therapists help clients identify and analyze negative thought patterns. These patterns arise from previous experiences and misconceptions or internal feelings of self-doubt, fear, or anger. Often, people turn to drugs and alcohol to self-medicate painful thoughts and feelings. Using evidence-based methodologies, we help clients find new, healthy ways to relieve pain.
Highly focused and results-driven, CBT programs help clients develop new behaviors and skills to modify negative or distorted thinking. Our CBT therapists address cognitive habits that are deeply ingrained and contribute to addictive behaviors.
Negative thought patterns directly contribute to depression, anxiety, and addiction. These powerfully destructive thoughts can lead to harsh internal dialogues and self-defeating behaviors. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has been proven extremely effective in addiction treatment.

With that being said, these principles can help those suffering from substance use disorder find the root cause of their addiction, and learn new ways to cope in a life of sobriety. Our addiction experts and CBT Therapists not only utilize CBT when developing treatment plans, but also in one-in-one sessions with clients.
Counseling sessions with a certified therapist offer a healthy, supportive space to explore personal history and identify influences on your thinking. Clients can expect therapists to identify and challenge any negative thoughts they may express and offer alternate scripts for tough situations.
Our CBT in Atlanta teaches clients proven skills to manage triggers and negative automatic responses. Individuals practice recognizing the circumstances that lead to alcohol and drug abuse and are taught methods to avoid or disengage from trigger situations whenever possible. Practicing cognitive-behavioral techniques, clinicians help clients identify and alleviate the intense emotions and thoughts that arise without relying on substance abuse to numb the pain.
As you uncover the root of negative thinking that shapes your actions, it becomes easier to identify and change resulting behaviors. Cognitive-behavioral therapy provides immediate coping techniques and meaningful results over time.
Our therapists use Cognitive-Behavioral Thinking to help you identify false beliefs and negative thinking. We will show you how to counteract destructive thoughts by replacing them with true, positive statements, reassessing your viewpoint, and manifesting new thought patterns.
