Meditation Could Reduce Drug User Relapse
Many people who seek treatment for drug addiction relapse and begin using again shortly after their treatment ends but a new study suggests that meditation may help to prevent relapses. Researchers suggest that approximately 40-60% of people who undergo treatment for drug addiction relapse within one year. Sarah Bowen, an assistant professor at the University of Washington states that, “Mindfulness therapy is another possibility for people to explore.” She has created a program where participants are lead through guided meditation and then discuss their feelings as they relate to addiction and relapse. Although in it’s early stages, researchers believe this could help in preventing an addict to relapse.
