Mindfulness, Meditation, and Spirituality as Tools for Recovery

 

Each year, about 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. struggle with mental illness and 1 in 25 experience a serious mental illness (National Institute of Mental Health [NIMH], 2015). Of the 20.2 million adults in the U.S. who struggle with a substance use disorder, more than half also experience another mental illness at the same time (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration [SAMHSA], 2015). There is a need for affordable, accessible tools to aid people in recovery from mental illness and co-occurring substance use disorders. Mindfulness, meditation, and spirituality practices can provide meaningful contributions toward recovery from these potentially debilitating disorders. Integration of these practices into current treatment approaches for those in recovery is on the rise. By understanding some of the basics of these complementary approaches, you can add to your toolbox of strategies that can help those who seek your services. You can also use these tools yourself to assist with your own wellness journey, or to improve the quality of care you provide by attending to your own self-care.
