What Is Mindfulness Therapy?

One of the types of therapy we offer at SoCal Detox is mindfulness therapy. It’s a type of therapy that involves identifying and evaluating various aspects of yourself and your surroundings. Practicing mindfulness will teach you to stay present, maintaining awareness of your thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and the situation you are in. Becoming more aware of these things will help you to better understand, identify, and avoid old thought and behavior patterns.

How Is Mindfulness Therapy Used in Addiction Treatment?

Mindfulness therapy is effective in the treatment of addiction and mental health conditions. Specifically, regarding addiction treatment, mindfulness therapy can make a big difference. Using mindfulness is particularly useful because addictive behaviors usually lack mindfulness. Rather, they are characterized by impulsive actions fueled by cravings, leading to unconscious and excessive behavior patterns. Mindfulness means tuning into your thoughts, emotions, and actions, which is key to preventing relapse. 

Who Is A Suitable Candidate For Mindfulness Therapy?

Mindfulness therapy, an ancient practice that has gained acceptance and use in the West in the last several decades, has been considered an effective mental health practice for almost all people who want to improve both their physical and psychological well-being. It is specifically helpful for individuals going through addiction treatment because it aims to lessen the stress and anxiety that is associated with getting and staying clean and sober. 

Long-Term Benefits of Mindfulness Meditation

At SoCal Detox, we believe that mindfulness meditation has many benefits, especially for those in drug and alcohol treatment.

  • Reduced anxiety and stress
  • Decreased depression
  • Improved mental clarity and concentration
  • Increased emotional regulation
  • Improved self-control

  • Ability to relate to other people and one’s self with kindness, compassion, and acceptance
