Missouri Drug Rehab Centers Use Cognitive Strategies to Curb Addiction

As techniques designed to help fast-track struggling patients on the road to successful recovery, cognitive strategies represent a flourishing discipline among substance abuse therapists. In fact, Grant suggested two potentially fruitful lines of inquiry to further develop the method: identifying why some people have more problems than others in controlling their impulses, and determining whether brain activity predicts the ability to quit an addiction.

Even as research continues to make the method suitable for as many types of cases as possible, professionals who conduct cognitive behavioral therapy for St. Louis patients—as well as for those struggling with substance abuse in other locations nationwide—can help people cope by providing flexible, individualized, and goal-oriented approaches to dealing with the debilitating effects of addictions.
