CBT sessions at Boca Recovery Center are conducted by highly experienced therapists who work like coaches, not professors. You’ll dig into the source of your SUD with someone who believes in you and your future.

Clients are encouraged to discuss irrational thoughts, negative emotions, and life stressors frankly. Our therapists can uncover useful, actionable strategies that bring about measurable results.

What to Expect



CBT is a proven treatment option for people with SUDs, but it’s not the right approach for everyone. Before adding this to your treatment protocol, your treatment team will learn more about your past, including your prior treatment attempts. Boca Recovery Center always customizes care to help people recover.



Therapists at Boca Recovery Center have received extensive training in CBT techniques to help clients discover the power of positive thoughts. CBT works by increasing a person’s awareness of their thoughts, emotions, and actions, as well as the consequences of their actions. This helps recovering individuals to better understand how the three are interconnected and how they lead to substance abuse.



CBT is a flexible, customizable treatment for SUDs. Your program at Boca Recovery Center will take many forms. You’ll participate in individual therapy, group therapy, phone coaching, and consultation. As your needs change, so will your program. You’ll get just what you need when you need it.
