Evidence-Based Addiction Treatment Methods

Evidence-based treatment methods are the new gold standard among all quality drug and alcohol treatment programs. Evidence-based forms of therapy include pharmacology and behavioral therapies. The most endowed behavioral therapy for substance abuse is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, CBT. The success of cognitive-behavioral therapy has proven through the evidence to help people with an addiction to drugs, alcohol, or both attain long term recovery.

Cognitive-behavioral therapy focuses on identifying and changing negative thought patterns and cognitive distortions that affect how a person reacts and behaves. This therapy method works by improving a person’s emotional health, and to help them develop personal coping strategies that target solving current problems.







How Effective is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy?

The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports how effective cognitive-behavioral therapy is and that the results from treatment continue to help a person even after they leave rehab.

Research indicates that the skills individuals learn through cognitive-behavioral approaches remain after the completion of treatment. Current research focuses on how to produce even more powerful effects by combining CBT with medications for drug abuse and with other types of behavioral therapies. (NIDA)

Does NYSHIP Insurance Cover the Costs of Addiction Treatment?

Addiction and alcoholism are deemed as medical conditions and considered diseases of the brain; insurance plans must offer benefits that cover this diagnosis with as much validity as they would another disease. According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine, addiction is a brain disease that must be treated as a medical condition.

Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory, and related circuitry. Dysfunction in these circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social, and spiritual manifestations. This is reflected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward or relief by substance use and other behaviors. Addiction is characterized by the inability to consistently abstain, impairment in behavioral control, craving, diminished recognition of significant problems with one’s behaviors and interpersonal relationships, and a dysfunctional emotional response. Like other chronic diseases, addiction often involves cycles of relapse and remission. Without treatment or engagement in recovery activities, addiction is progressive and can result in disability or premature death. (ASAM)
