Mindfulness for Relapse Prevention (MBRP)

Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention techniques are intended to foster increased awareness of triggers, destructive habitual patterns, and “automatic” reactions that seem to control many of our lives. Instead, replacing them with positive reactions in order for us to handle stressful situations without turning to substances to escape our problems. Focusing on the here and now.
