Drug Recovery Activities in Houston, TX
Cognitive Behavioral Techniques
Led by a LCDC, groups are held to effect the treatment of various problems that may include anxiety, personality and substance disorders. The focus tends to center on extracting the symptoms and looking at them in their present day environment. Our team of LCDC’s assists the client in identifying their negative behavior patterns and the resulting consequences. After identification we coach them on how to modify their behaviors to certain events to bring about positive consequences.
By having groups that treat alcohol and drug problems relating to normative-based feedback our LCDC’s can evaluate the client’s motivation to change in light of their input.
