Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a treatment method that helps people recover from mental health issues and substance use disorders.

As the leading mental health rehabilitation facility in Orange County, Acera Health uses a variety of evidence-based treatment methods, including CBT, to help people with mental health issues get their lives back on track.

The road to regaining life quality and internal balance begins with admitting the problem and starting appropriate treatment. Acera Health makes it possible to take full advantage of personalized CBT in Orange County.

What Is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy?

Cognitive behavioral therapy is an effective type of talk therapy that can help treat numerous mental health disorders. The treatment involves several sessions with a mental health counselor to help facilitate CBT.

The duration and success of CBT depend on the patient’s specific needs, medical history, willingness to open up, and the existence of co-occurring disorders. Mental health professionals can help the patient determine how CBT can improve their mental health and the best course to take. 

This therapy works by helping a patient identify inaccurate and negative thinking and counter it with positivity and light. By changing the way a person thinks, CBT helps patients adjust their behavior and improve their quality of life.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy has a significant evidence base. It has proven effective for many mental and behavioral health concerns. This therapeutic approach helps patients build healthy coping skills to manage their mental health symptoms. 

CBT is used to treat the following conditions:

CBT can also be useful for relieving stress due to other medical conditions, including chronic pain. It can either work alone or in combination with other therapies, such as dialectical behavioral therapy, group therapy, and trauma therapy. CBT is used with other forms of therapy to provide patients with a comprehensive approach to mental health treatment.

The goal of this therapy is to help a patient accept the reality of their lives, behaviors, and conditions. It promotes emotional balance and battles black-and-white thinking

Trauma Therapy

Trauma Therapy

Trauma therapy is a type of therapy that helps patients deal with emotional responses to traumatic events.

This therapy often involves a combination of therapies, including Prolonged Exposure (exposes a person to the source of fear until it becomes insignificant), CBT (changing thoughts and behaviors triggered by trauma memories), Trauma-Focused CBT (helps address inaccurate beliefs), and others.

Group Therapy

Group Therapy

Group therapy is a form of therapy that involves several people sharing their thoughts, fears, and emotions in a setting controlled by a licensed therapist.

For some patients, group therapy can be a highly useful addition to their treatment. It allows them to stop feeling alone and become more open to treatment.

For some disorders, patients may require medication to control their symptoms. An experienced clinical team at Acera Health can prescribe relevant medication to complement therapy sessions.
