Kicking drug addiction — or any addiction — is a major accomplishment.
Counseling is an essential part of drug abuse treatment for many people. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), or Family Counseling and other therapies, can help people recovering from opioid addiction stay clean. Psychotherapy can also treat the other mental health conditions that often contribute to drug abuse.
Why is counseling important in addiction treatment? Addiction is more than a physical dependence on drugs. Even after detox, when physical dependence has resolved, addicts are at high risk for relapse. Psychological and social factors are often powerful stimulation for drug relapse – the friends you maintain, the people you hang out with, and even partners you may have, can all contribute.
