Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP) combines the practices of mindfulness with cognitive behavior techniques and relapse prevention strategies to help address addictive habits of mind that limit choices and cause suffering. Participants learn to recognize the internal signals and cues that accompany urges and cravings and practice new ways of relating and responding to them. Research is showing that MBRP can help reduce withdrawal/craving symptoms as well as the negative consequences of substance use.
