Behavior Therapy

Behavioral (or Behavior) Therapy is mainly aimed at understanding current behaviors, especially negative ones, and to replace them with new positive behaviors, allowing individuals in treatment to take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing.

Evidence-based therapies such as behavioral therapy have gained recognition in recent years as an effective treatment for drug abuse and dependence. It can help individuals change their self-destructive behaviors and allows them to adapt attitudes and behaviors that are more conducive to sober living.

Behavioral Therapies at California Prime

There are several different techniques that we use in our treatment plans at California Prime, in various combinations, so that they are individually formulated for each of our clients. Some of those we use are:

1. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is an approach to identify distorted thinking patterns that are self-destructive and can create challenges in an individual’s life; and then to evaluate them from a realistic perspective. CBT is effective in treating depression, anxiety, panic attacks and a variety of other mental health issues

2. Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

DBT is another kind of talk therapy, especially aimed at individuals who experience intense emotions by helping them to understand their thoughts and thereby helping them to change their unhelpful behaviors. It is used in patients who experience trauma, suicidal ideation, and borderline personality, among other disorders

3. Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

MBCT combines mindfulness practices of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MSBR) therapy with principles of cognitive therapy to create an effective way to reframe an individual’s thought patterns and replace using drugs and alcohol with healthier coping strategies.

4. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

While it’s still a controversy whether EMDR is the same as CBT with the addition of eye movement, what is true is that EMDR has been shown to be an effective treatment technique for PTSD, panic disorder and other trauma induced disorders.

5. Family Behavior Therapy

Most addiction patients resort to substance use due to past trauma, whether within their families or other relationships. Addiction is a disease that involves and affects not just the individual but their family and loved ones. Family Behavior Therapy is beneficial in helping families address conflict and creating healthier home environment
