Overview

Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) is a form of psychotherapy developed by Dr. Albert Ellis which helps individuals with drug addiction identify and change the way they think about addiction as well as other negative behaviours. It helps individuals think in better and more constructive ways that helps them gradually overcome their addiction and develop a healthy and more productive lifestyle. REBT helps an individual in getting rid of negative and dysfunctional behaviours, eliminate addictive tendencies, and instil positive values such as unconditional acceptance of others and self and strong self-esteem.

REBT recognizes three basic irrational thinking patterns that most people engage in, called the “three basic musts”, which are rigid demands that people hold about themselves, others, and the events in the world around them. These are –

• I must get approval and acceptance of others otherwise it implies that I am not worthy.
• I must always be treated fairly and kindly, all the time. If others don’t do so, they are not worthy and deserve to be punished.
• I must have everything I want immediately. If I don’t, I cannot tolerate it.
