Mindfulness is a meditative practice, and a way of engaging in life with presence, attention, and awareness. Studies have shown that Mindfulness can positively affect physical well-being, mood, cognition, and feelings of connection with oneself, others, or a higher power. With these powerful effects, Mindfulness is used increasingly to supplement conventional treatment and more effectively address the issues that often accompany SUDs, including anxiety, depression, trauma, emotional and physical pain, impulsivity, cravings, poor problem solving, and negative thought patterns, among others. Core principles and evidence-based Mindfulness programs will be shared, along with a case study.
