Learning Improvement Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Course
This part of the drug rehab program enables the student to advance their reading and comprehension skills. It also helps give the tools needed to acquire and retain knowledge, identify and overcome the barriers to study and gain full understanding in any endeavor. Once this cognitive behavioral therapy course it completed, the person is able to grasp and apply fully all the steps of study and application that follow.
If you don’t know how to apply the material, the material won’t apply to you.
One of the biggest stumbling blocks for substance abusers in early recovery from addictions is incorrectly processing information that could be vital towards their long-term recovery. In fact, many of us have been taught incorrect study patterns from early on. Teaching that it is “more important to memorize the right answers and get the A on the test than it is to apply the material to our own life” has left many substance abusers with one of two attitudes towards learning:
- A negative association with learning and studying because of frustration and poor performance in early education methods.
- Became excellent at memorizing and regurgitating the “right” answers, without any strong abilities or skills to apply the material.
Although we are not affiliated with the Alcoholics Anonymous program and do not prescribe to its belief systems, we will use A.A. as an example. The foundation of Alcoholics Anonymous program is based upon a book published in 1939. Due to this, many of the words and phrases used are antiquated or out-dated. This leaves many readers of the A.A. literature frustrated or bored. Because of a lack of understanding in the material, the material doesn’t apply to them. They cannot relate, and do not try to. Others within the A.A. program simply memorize the material and can rapidly quote phrases straight out of the book, but still can’t stay sober. Again, memorization doesn’t necessarily mean application.
If we are to properly understand our addiction and recovery, we must be able to properly learn the ideal methods which will bring about the greatest understanding and be able to apply that information to our own lives. Reading effective material is only effective if it is properly understood. Cognitive behavioral therapy helps change thinking patterns and habits, resulting in more effective learning of the material at hand.

Goals of the Learning Improvement Course
We have three main goals for the Learning Improvement Course. Each goal will further the student on their path to recovery and help them in their future life, once they leave our treatment program.
- Learn the proper techniques of study to more fully understand the material
- Recognize the stumbling blocks or barriers to study
- Learn techniques to apply the material so that it applies to their own life.
Once our students gain these skills, proper understanding of their addictions through study and how to recover become more real for them. The principles become applicable instead of just some vague concept that doesn’t make much sense. This course provides a solid foundation for the student to build on as they move through the program and learn why they became addicted, how they can stop, and how they can prevent relapse in the future.
