This group will help you examine the positive and negative consequences of alcohol and drug use in your life and will integrate mindfulness meditation practices into an exploration of motivation to change and traditional relapse prevention. Each week will incorporate a variety of techniques utilized in mindfulness-based addiction treatment which include ‘awareness of breath’, progressive muscle relaxation, and ‘body scan’. Goals for the group members will be individualized and may include a reduction in stress and increased ability to respond to negative thoughts, sensations, and emotions with an attitude of nonjudgmental, acceptance, and present-moment awareness. Participants will be asked to share their struggles and solution suggestions with one another - as much as they are comfortable doing so. “Homework” assignments will be given each week as increased practice of mindfulness is associated with improved outcome.
