At Greater Boston Addiction Centers, we understand the cycle of addiction and how it affects not only an individual but their friends and family. Those struggling with substance use disorder, commonly called addiction, can find their way back to sobriety through professional addiction treatment programs like those offered at Greater Boston Addiction Centers.
We take a cognitive-behavioral approach to first address a person’s thoughts and emotions before helping them achieve the behavior changes they’re looking for. You will learn how to identify and change negative feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. Another important aspect of an addiction treatment program is learning to work through cravings without relapsing or hurting others.
Managing Substance Use Disorder Starts in Our Addiction Rehab Center
The treatment you will receive at GBAC is research-based, professional, and community-centered. Learning to cope without turning to drugs or alcohol is the most challenging obstacle many people face in their lifetime. Mindfulness training is one of the many life-changing approaches we offer at Greater Boston Addiction Centers’ outpatient Boston rehab. Mindfulness is the practice of being present in the moment and accepting things as they are without judgment.
This skill is essential for managing substance use disorder because it allows you to be aware of your thoughts and emotions without letting them control your behavior. It may seem impossible to imagine life without drugs or alcohol, but it is possible, and you are not alone. Our addiction treatment programs will give you the tools you need to manage your substance use disorder and live a life in recovery.
