Cognitive Behavioral Therapy


Cognitive behavioral therapy is currently being used to help counter addictive behaviors in the recovery process. In this therapy, unhealthy thoughts and behaviors are replaced with healthy ones.

Most opioid addicts believe they need the drug to be okay; many say they cannot function without it. Thoughts such as these are untrue, harmful—and potentially deadly.

Discussion Post

Conduct an Internet research for a personal success story of someone who used cognitive behavior therapy (derived from Bandura’s theory) to address opioid addiction.

  • In your discussion, identify the trigger that made him or her choose to get clean.
  • Briefly describe the therapy process that was used to replace unhealthy thoughts and actions with healthy ones.
  • Discuss how cognitive behavior therapy relates to Bandura’s social cognitive theory.
  • Use APA style and formatting to cite your research.
