HOW MEDITATION THERAPY HELPS ADDICTION RECOVERY
There are many advantages to meditation, including improved concentration, self-awareness, inner peace, and improved health. People who practice meditation regularly also enjoy an improved quality of sleep.
As part of the addiction treatment process, meditation is particularly helpful for a variety of reasons. During the early months of recovery, most addicts struggle to think clearly as their minds try to adjust to living life without turning to drugs or alcohol to get by. Throughout this time emotions are sometimes erratic and mood swings can be common.
If a person doesn’t find ways to cope with emotional challenges during the recovery process, they are at a significantly greater risk of relapsing back into a pattern of substance abuse and other self-destructive behaviors.
BENEFITS OF MEDITATION
Meditation is a powerful tool that is effective in helping to reduce cravings. Participating in guided meditation sessions also increases a person’s ability to manage stress, as the mind stays focused on the present rather than worrying about challenges that may arise in the future.
Meditation therapy also reduces symptoms of anxiety and depression that can be common for many people throughout the recovery process. By remaining focused in the present moment, you are able to become free from negative thought patterns.
