Ups and Downs in Life CBT Course
To avoid harmful situations, this cognitive behavioral therapy course is designed to enable a student to identify true friends and isolate those whose company is detrimental to the student’s sobriety and survival. A student learns about how poor decisions regarding acquaintances and friends has damaged their past, and how they can make improved choices in their future.
Dealing with People, Places and Things
In a perfect world, a substance abuser would enter into treatment, return home and life would be wonderful. Free from the negative consequences brought upon by drug and alcohol abuse, life should be easy.
But the world is not perfect. Unfortunately there are people in our lives, old associates, and unhealthy relationships that do not want us to be well. And those people will make us sicker. They do not want us to be well.
Many addiction treatment facilities simply sum it up by saying avoid old people, places and things that remind you of using and drinking. But try and explain this to a 21 year old who has spent the majority of his life hanging out with his “friends”. He doesn’t believe that they have bad intentions. They are his friends. Perhaps some of them are ok, aren’t they? In worse cases, a substance abuser may be connected with someone who is covertly working against them and their recovery. And that person might not even be a drug or alcohol user themselves. A wife who says she wants her husband to quit drinking, but discourages him from seeking treatment would be an example.

Without a proper understanding of the true motivations behind the actions of some of those we have been connected to in our past alcohol and drug abuse will often lead to gravitating right back to an unhealthy situation. One that we might not even have known was unhealthy, or even why.
One of the greatest gifts that we can give our students at Freedom Treatment Center is the ability to recognize and surround themselves with positive people that are healthy for their lives and their recovery. The Up ands Downs in Life course seeks to give our students a better understanding of how people can affect us positively and negatively. It goes much deeper than knowing to avoid the “seedy drug dealer standing on the corner hawking his wares”. It gives them the tools on how to identify and handle present life relationships that may be temporarily or even permanently unhealthy. Cognitive behavioral therapy helps the student understand the root causes of their addiction, how to modify their thinking, and how to move forward without substance abuse.
In addition, many family relationships may potentially become very healthy for us, but at the moment, since we have created so much antagonism from our actions, they may have become chaotic and disrupted. Learning how to properly handle and help our immediate family is critical towards long term recovery, for our family can eventually become our best support group.
