Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention Course

Independent 6-week Program

MIndfulness Based Relapse Prevention Program

For individuals struggling with addictive behaviors, including problematic alcohol or drug use, disordered eating, and behavioral addictions such as gambling.

This evidence-based approach was originally developed at the Addictive Behaviors Research Center at the University of Washington.  It integrates cognitive-behavioral relapse prevention skills and mindfulness meditation practices, all designed to increase awareness of triggers, habitual patterns, and automatic reactions. Our MBRP program is designed to provide skills, tools, and practices that support recovery and enhance quality of life. No previous mindfulness experience is necessary!

Focus topics in the course include:

  • Identifying triggers, automatic reactions, and habitual patterns
  • Developing the ability to pause, observe present experience, and make conscious choices
  • Gaining freedom from engrained problematic thought and behavior patterns
  • Learning to respond skillfully rather than react to distress/discomfort (emotional & physical)
  • Fostering compassionate curiosity and non-judgment toward ourselves
  • Building a lifestyle that supports mindfulness and recovery

Courses run 6 weeks at varying times throughout the year. A brief initial interview is required for participation.
