Meditation has served as a metaphysical link in many eastern spiritual cultures for centuries; gaining recent validation from western medical practitioners in regard to substance abuse and addiction treatment. Though not a cure-all for dependence, when included within a recovery setting, meditation offers a renewed spiritual connection, increased self-awareness, heightened creativity, and diminished levels of negative response to daily stresses.
The Benefits Of Meditation For Addiction Recovery
Meditation is a personal endeavor, and not an activity that necessarily requires hands-on instruction. However, in the interest of accelerated learning, our dedicated and caring treatment staff offers guidance to our clients through the meditation process.
Meditation allows for a greater connection with internal spirituality, a greater awareness of self, and a greater internal peace in life overall. This increased self-clarity aids in understanding the reasons behind addictions and provides strength against them.
When our clients achieve a truly clear and meditative state of mind, behaviors, emotions and memories can be examined objectively and introspectively. Through our addiction meditation program, clients are able to obtain a better understanding of the areas in life that trigger them to seek refuge in alcohol and drug use, while gaining a better understanding of how to address such obstacles moving forward.
Many clients have reported that through meditation, they have achieved, or reawakened, a greater sense of spiritual connection. Although our meditation program is inherently non religious, the process can often awaken spiritual beliefs and sensations.
Through an unemotional and analytic awareness of our behaviors, our life stresses become less and less demanding. The sense of tranquility gained through the practice tends to expand well beyond the designated meditation period, resulting in a greater sense of ease and calm overall. The typically upsetting and stressful events in our lives can often become less upsetting once we have achieved a greater state of awareness. Reducing the influence of these stresses inhibits the power of the environments that often lead us to relapse.
