Mindfulness meditation and its effects on the brain are becoming commonly studied topics. At JourneyPure Emerald Coast, we believe in utilizing meditation as part of a total wellness, evidence-based treatment plan.
Studies showing success treating addiction with Mindfulness Meditation
Our comprehensive rehab program is committed to addressing the underlying issues surrounding addiction. Addiction symptoms, related to impaired self-control, are found to involve reduced activity in specific key areas of the brain. Behavioral training such as mindfulness can increase activity in those areas of the brain leading to improved emotion regulation. Studies are touting meditation to be a promising approach for the treatment of addiction. By cultivating mindfulness and meditation into treatment, our rehabilitation programs increase a patient’s likelihood of not only successfully completing a treatment plan but continuing success after residential treatment.
Meditation as a Continuum of Care
In addition to providing emotion regulation benefits and improving the areas of the brain that relate to the impaired self control, mindfulness-based meditation practice is offering patients greater awareness of environmental cues and the internal phenomena of craving that can be responsible for triggering relapse. By providing mindfulness as a holistic, total-wellness approach to addiction treatment, JourneyPure Emerald Coast is setting patients up for long-term recovery success, enhancing efficacy of traditional relapse prevention techniques.
With mindfulness training studies showing reductions in depressive relapse and an increasing amount of research now supporting it as an effective tool for substance abuse treatment, we are proud to offer it to patients coming to us at JourneyPure Emerald Coast to improve total wellbeing.
