Substance abuse can take its toll on your mental state. It may even lead to mental disorders such as PTSD, anxiety, or depression. Green Mountain Treatment offers a meditation therapy program that can help you find healing from your addiction. In fact, meditation is an integral part of our holistic therapy program.
Our rehabilitation programs use meditation and holistic therapy in combination with primary evidence-based treatment. Meditation provides additional support to help you overcome the symptoms of addiction and mental disorders you may have.
Green Mountain Treatment provides numerous opportunities for you to engage in mediation throughout detox, rehab, as well as aftercare.
Understanding Meditation in Rehab
Therapists often use meditation in rehab to help clients focus on a particular object, thought, or activity. For meditation to be successful, you must create awareness of what is going inside you and around you. Only once you become aware of the negativity that clutters your mind, can you then redirect your mind to more positive or productive thoughts.
Of course, meditation is a process. Therefore, it is not something that you will master overnight. Your Green Mountain Treatment therapist will work with you one-on-one to develop your skills and retrain your mind. As you improve your technique, you will feel a sense of calmness around you whenever you are faced with challenging thoughts, feelings, or situations.
The Benefits of Meditation
One of the most important benefits of meditation is that it brings you into the present moment. When your mind is always in the painful past or stressful future, then you have little focus on what is in front of you. Achieving focus can help you overcome the triggers that fuel your addiction.
Mindfulness meditation presents a wide range of benefits including:
- You become more attentive to your own thoughts and feelings
- You become more productive, as you focus on the present moment
- Meditation helps you bounce back from addiction with resilience
- Triggers no longer have influence or power over your mind
- The symptoms of anxiety or depression are more manageable
Meditation helps you reclaim your life from the negativity within you as well as the destructive elements around you. Your Green Mountain Treatment therapist can help you use meditation to navigate through the challenges of your mental health issue or addiction.
Meditation As a Part of Your Treatment Plan
Although mediation is not a primary treatment, it is a supplemental tool that therapists use with evidence-based treatment. At our addiction treatment, we utilize mediation with the different types of therapy such as:
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Dialectical behavior therapy
- Dual diagnosis for addiction and mental disorders
- Group, individual, and family therapy
- Holistic therapy and activities
- Inpatient, outpatient, and extended care treatment
One of the things that we teach in our meditation therapy program in New Hampshire is how to use meditation in your everyday life. This is where meditation is most valuable. Once you learn skills during your addiction therapy sessions, you will then see how meditation makes sense when dealing with different situations.
