There are many models for the treatment for addiction and chemical dependency. We will focus on cognitive behavior therapy . We will also discuss  the relationship with these types of therapy within a Christian Drug Rehab center.  

CBT or Cognitive behavioral therapy helps clients learn how their behaviors, thoughts, and feelings are all interconnected and how to break those connections when dealing with addictive behaviors. The therapist shows clients how to deal with their environment especially when responding to the thought of wanting to use drugs or alcohol.

How does the  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Model relate to Christian Drug Rehab centers?

1 Corinthians 10:13
“No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.”
CBT is basically a tool that helps the counselors and the client recognize behavioral traits when it comes to addiction while learning how to deal with those random thoughts before they become actions that they will regret. We can not control what it is that we think about, just how we handle the thoughts that come into our minds. Through therapy, Christian teachings, and practices, it becomes manageable and over time less and less. Basically, when we first decide to stop the usage of drugs or alcohol, the thoughts of ‘one more time couldn’t hurt’ are very prevalent in the minds of early clients in recovery. When we use drugs or alcohol, the feeling of being high or drunk, give us an empty feeling of euphoria that we use as an outlet for the  handling of everyday life and it’s challenges. This pattern is hard to break, but there is an answer, through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and with the help of Christian counselors, we will succeed. When you combine the latest technologies with the power of God, helping you in your time of need, how could you fail?
Our programs make sure that you take the time to redirect your anger and feelings of defeat while you were using either drugs or alcohol, to positive actions and hobbies. We become stronger in life, and as a person through overcoming challenges and pitfalls.  You can overcome addiction with the raw tools provided by cognitive behavioral therapy by themselves. By identifying situations and habits that were helping us make the decisions to use, we can help derive a plan or action for safeguarding ourselves so the usage does not continue to be a crutch. When we turn our hardships over to God and let Him start to help us in our time of need, while also using the tools provided through CBT, the challenges of early recovery are not as insurmountable as they might seem.

When Is CBT used as a form of Therapy in A Christian Drug Rehab Center?

There have been many Scientific studies that have shown that CBT is useful in treating a wide variety of mental illnesses, mood disorders, personality disorders, eating disorders, substance abuse, anxiety, and psychotic disorders. Studies have been conducted to identify if brain activity and functionality changes with the use of CBT. These studies have suggested that the use of this therapy actually improves and changes the brain activity in patients with mental illnesses, which suggests that brain activity and functionality is actually changing. Clients are encourages to write down their (automatic thoughts) giving the therapist patterns in thought behaviors and triggers that bring the thoughts to the surface to be handled and overcome through therapy sessions.
CBT can be as useful as antidepressants to help some individuals with depression and may be more useful in preventing the  relapse of symptoms of depression. Clients that receive CBT as a form of therapy are encouraged to take time out of their day to enjoy activities that are positive and bring joy to the individual. Learning to see the good in things and using the tools provided by CBT the client will learn to restructure negative thought patterns into a more positive action that supports their beliefs in God. 
Regular sleep habits are very important to help in the treatment of depression and bi-polar disorders. Therapist work with the client to develop a regular sleep schedules to improve and regulate the bodies need to rest. A rested body helps develop a strong mind while allowing the spirit to be overflowed with the love that comes from God.

God uses problems and pitfalls to help direct you.

When we are feeling like there is no hope left, like so many of have in the past, many have learned that sometimes God lights a fire under us to get us moving, so we see that our direction of movement is up to us, as we all have a choice. These problems can point us to a direction that we would have not known was an option had there not been the motivation to change.

Proverbs 20:30
 “Sometimes it takes a painful experience to make us change our ways”

God is at work in your life whether you know it or not. He is always helping us grow as a person and as a messenger for Him. God uses problems to help perfect you and make you grow. Overcoming addiction is one of the hardest disorders to overcome and can seem insurmountable to the addict in early recovery. Fear not. God has your back and will carry you in your time of need through the people and places that he has lead you to. There is hope for all who need to get the addiction behind them so there is growth in life and spirituality.
