Cognitive Behavioral Interventions (CBT)
 
Cognitive-behavioral coping skills treatment (CBT) is designed to help individuals become abstinent from substances. The underlying assumption is that learning processes play an important role in the development and continuation of abuse and dependence. These same learning processes can be used to help individuals reduce their substance use.

CBT attempts to help clients recognize, avoid, and cope, RECOGNIZE the situations in which they are most likely to use, AVOID these situations when appropriate, and COPE more effectively with a range of problems and problematic behaviors associated with substance abuse.
