Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an empirically-based psychological intervention that uses acceptance & mindfulness strategies to help individuals live and behave in ways consistent with personal values while developing mental flexibility. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (or ACT) is used to help to treat medical conditions such as stress, anxiety, depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It has also been used to help treat medical conditions such as substance abuse and alcoholism.
Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT) is an empirically based psychological intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies to help individuals live and behave in ways consistent with personal values while developing mental flexibility. Through mindfulness, one comes to understand how suffering is found in resistance to experiencing negative attachments and in attachment to the permanence of good things. Freedom thus lies in the ability to surrender to the full experience of human emotions, including pain and suffering, in order to stop them from having control. Distressing emotions might not be welcomed, but they have a reason for existing. They may be pointing to cognitive associations to earlier experiences that may no longer be true.
For instance, most fears and phobias work this way. if you are riding an elevator that got stuck when you were a child, it’s totally understandable that you would develop this kind of fear as a result. ACT techniques allow one to observe cognitive distortions and self-judgments that often lead to maladaptive and self-sabotage behaviors. Working closely with a therapist, clients will learn how to process certain events and feelings. When confronting these emotions, individuals will decide if it should be accepted for what it is and make the appropriate behavioral changes.
Although some addicts do recognize the problems their addiction has created and seek treatment and recovery on their own, this is not the case with everyone.
