The other traditional treatment approach is behavioral treatment. Three are a number of different behavioral treatment options depending on the individual, their addiction, and their needs and goals. But, all of these approaches share the same goals, which are:
to identify underlying thoughts and behaviors that may lead to addiction
to alter these thoughts and behaviors away from addictive tendencies
to help the addict remain motivated to recover
to help them avoid future relapses
By meeting these goals, behavioral therapy gives recovering opiate addicts the ability to manage their condition long term. A good rehab center will offer behavioral therapies. For help finding an opiate rehab center call 800-481-6320Who Answers? today.
