Mindfulness Meditation in Addiction Recovery
Mindfulness provides skills and practices to loosen our identification with thoughts. This helps individuals to recognize that the content of a thought – and the resulting habitual emotions and triggers – are not absolute “truth.” With a space created between emotional triggers and habitual reactions – individuals can create a permanent cognitive re-structuring away from self destructive and habitual addictive behaviors.
Calmness, inner peace; and increasing compassion for self and others. Many who practice mindfulness meditation experience a gradual and natural increase in gratitude. Another potential benefit of mindfulness meditation is a deepening experience of personal spirituality.
Chico Recovery Center Professional Interventions
Substance abuse can simply be defined as a pattern of harmful use of any substance for mood-altering purposes. “Substances” can include alcohol and other drugs (illegal or not).
“Abuse” can result when using a substance in a way not intended or recommended. Or, by taking more than the prescribed dose of prescription drugs. When the individual involved has difficulty in being honest with themselves regarding the substance abuse – or cannot stop using by themselves – a professional intervention is very helpful.
