Frequently Asked Questions

Why does CBT4CBT have to be offered through my clinician?2019-11-16T15:13:32+00:00

We require this because it is important that your healthcare provider does a thorough assessment with you and makes sure CBT4CBT is appropriate for you and that you receive the right kind of care for the issues you are experiencing. Your clinician can monitor how you progress through CBT4CBT and provide access to other supports you may need. For example, some individuals may need additional services or medications like naltrexone, buprenorphine, or methadone; your provider can help you access these.

 

How can I get access to CBT4CBT?2019-11-16T15:13:14+00:00

If you’d like your clinician or primary care doctor to prescribe CBT4CBT, give them a link to the Provider section. CBT4CBT is not yet reimbursed through insurance, you will have to pay a small fee.

I am already taking buprenorphine, why would CBT4CBT help me?2019-11-16T15:12:51+00:00

Buprenorphine, methadone, and naltrexone are life-saving medications that are FDA-approved to be safe and effective for treating opioid use disorder. These medications may be sufficient for some people with opioid use disorder. However, for many people, staying away from drugs and meeting life goals means making changes in decisions and actions you make every day. CBT4CBT can help you do just that!

 

I don’t have a provider.2020-01-25T17:02:58+00:00

If you need help finding a provider, a great place to start is the NIAAA (National Institute on Alcohol and Alcoholism) treatment navigator.

If you have an opioid use disorder and you are looking for a buprenorphine provider, you can check out the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website.

If 2 or 3 Yes responses, you may have a mild substance use disorder.

If 4 or 5 Yes responses, you may have a moderate substance use disorder.

If 6 or more Yes responses, you may have a severe substance use disorder.

The diagnosis of substance use disorder should be made by a licensed clinician, however, if you have 2 or more symptoms, you may have a substance use disorder and CBT4CBT or other empirically validated therapies may be helpful for you. In addition, if you have an alcohol or opioid use disorder, there are FDA-approved medications that are likely to be helpful for you and can be prescribed by your physician.
