Mindfulness-based Relapse Prevention
April 8, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm PDT
Spiritual but not religious? Sober and struggling? Seeking an alternative to traditional aftercare and 12-step recovery?
Mindfulness-based Relapse Prevention (MBRP) is an innovative program that integrates mindfulness practices with evidence-based cognitive and behavioral strategies, and gets to the root of addictive behavior by targeting two of the main predictors of relapse: negative emotions and cravings.
MBRP integrates cognitive-behavioral relapse prevention skills and mindfulness meditation practices. Designed to foster increased awareness of the triggers, habitual patterns, and automatic reactions that characterize substance abuse and addiction, these exercises and practices cultivate the ability to pause, observe what’s happening in the moment, and choose a healthier, more skillful response.
This is a closed group for 5 – 10 adults who have at least 30 days of sobriety and are willing to make lifestyle changes to support their recovery. We meet once a week for 2 hrs over 8 weeks. Participants are expected to do home practice between class meetings.
14 hours of Continuing Education credit pending approval for psychologists, LCSWs, LMFTs, LPCCs, and RNs.
