Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP) is a course integrating empirically supported interventions from Dr. Alan Marlatt’s Relapse Prevention Therapy (RPT), Jon Kabat-Zinn’s Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), and Zindel Segal and colleagues’ Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). This program was specifically created for clients in recovery from substance use disorders, and is designed to prevent relapse for those who have undergone inpatient, intensive outpatient treatment or have maintained 6 months of sobriety.
The MBRP skills help participants learn to recognize and stay with discomfort (physical, cognitive and emotional) as opposed to reactively reaching for a “fix.” Combining mindfulness meditation and relapse prevention cultivates heightened awareness of both internal and external triggers, while promoting vital lifestyle modifications for a healthy life of recovery. Whether you have 6 months or 6 years of continuous sobriety, MBRP can provide tools that support emotional sobriety, which is the foundation for living life on life's terms.
MBRP is an 8 week program with classes once a week for 2 hours each. There is also a half day silent retreat included in the program. Weekly support meetings will be offered to those who complete the course to help continue and support mindfulness practices and answer any questions or concerns that may arise. It is highly recommended that participants commit to attending all nine classes, become willing to develop a daily mindfulness practice and agree to comply with the rule of anonymity within the group. A journal or notebook is suggested. All other materials will be provided. Classes are limited to 10 participants.
