Mindfulness-Based Sobriety: An Overview
The goal of this webinar is to increase understanding of mindfulness and its use in substance abuse treatment programs. Mindfulness is a state of active, open attention on the present. When you're mindful, you observe and accept your thoughts, feelings, sensations, and urges, without judgment and without reacting to them. This practice is highly effective in treating emotion dysregulation, stress, depression, grief, and impulsivity—all of which are at risk of fueling addiction.
