This five-week MBRP course is a modified verion of the eight-week Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP) a psycho-educational class specifically created for clients in recovery from substance use disorders and is designed to help prevent future relapse.MBRP uses empirically supported interventions from Dr. Alan Marlatt's Relapse Prevention Therapy (RPT), Jon Kabat-Zinn's Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).
This MBRP group will be facilitated by Lisa Dale Miller, MFT, mindfulness-based psychotherapist. The MBRP curriculum integrates mindfulness meditation practices with cognitive-behavioral strategies to support clients and promote vital lifestyle modifications for a healthy life of recovery. The program teaches effective skills to reduce stress, manage urges and cravings, and cultivate compassion and acceptance. Participants will be expected to do daily home practice. All participants must have at least 30 days of active sobriety.
Why use a mind/body approach for relapse prevention?
Mind-body approaches recognize a person’s innate healing abilities
Illness provides some people with an opportunity for personal growth and transformation
Mindfulness meditation, yoga, and chi gong address lifestyle imbalances while deepening and strengthening overall global coping strategies
What is Relapse Prevention Therapy (RPT)?
A cognitive-behavioral approach which assumes addictive behaviors are learned behaviors
RPT focuses upon the following interventions
Awareness of triggers for addictive behaviors such as urges, cravings, interpersonal conflict, social pressure, and negative emotional states
Cognitive-behavioral skills training for successful change in thoughts, feelings, and behavior
What is Mindfulness?
Develops a curious, non-judgmental, acceptance of whatever one is experiencing moment to moment
Being with the moment frees us from rigid attitudes, cognitions, behaviors, and lowers reactivity
Cultivates letting go of desired outcome to more easily tolerate pain without the need to avoid or fix it
