Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Addiction Treatment

The pathway to real recovery runs through your brain.

Cognitive behavior therapy helps individuals map out their thought and behavior patterns.  This is a crucial part of our men’s recovery program—almost like calibrating your compass.

At NSR of Asheville, we support young men with clinically proven methods and compassionate care.  We help guide the way from detox or inpatient care to a rewarding lifetime of sobriety.  We use a potent combination of structure, community, and clinical therapies like CBT to help achieve this goal.

As we say:

“Recovery is the Real Adventure.”

Cognitive Behavior Therapy helps us take some of the mystery out of that adventure.

A Clinically Proven Method to Recognize and Change Thought Patterns Over Time

CBT is one of the most trusted clinical therapies around today.

It is used for a variety of conditions such as anxiety, depression, phobias, and addiction.

This evidence-based approach uses logic to identify negative thought patterns.  Then, it works to remove or change these habits.  Once understood, this empowers those struggling with addication to change their lives.  Cognitive Behavior Therapy helps identify how thoughts impact feelings and behaviors.

This makes CBT an valuable tool in the treatment of addiction and co-occurring disorders.

In addition to clinical support, our community is here to provide the compassion that leads to true change.  Together we can learn to think better thoughts and become better versions of ourselves.

"I am so grateful for NSR of Asheville and all the staff members. This is definitely the place I needed to come after I got out of treatment. Here I got connected to the recovery community in Asheville and made some good friends here at the houses. They have not only taught me what I need to do to stay clean but I have learned so many life lessons while I was here. I will stay in contact with them because this place has given me my life back and for that I am so grateful!"

"NSR of Asheville was exactly what I needed in the early stages of my recovery! I spent so many years of my life hiding behind a bottle, and I couldn’t take it anymore! Susan and her staff helped me to get back on my feet and start the process moving on and loving life without the use of alcohol or drugs. After my 3 months here, I chose to stay in Asheville and continue to work on my self, with their guidance. I couldn’t imagine my life today if I was still stuck in my old ways, Thank you NSR of Asheville!"

The main goal of our program is to help young men transcend their struggles with addictions and create fulfilling lives.
