Samadhi – Mindfulness-Based Recovery


Accepts Currents

Contact: filmcoman1@mac.com

Samadhi is a recovery center for those suffering from substance use and related disorders and addictions. Our community based Outreach center opened in April 2019. The core program is based in alternative treatment modalities: Integrative Harm Reduction Psychotherapy (IHRP), Mindfulness-Based Addiction Recovery (MBAR), Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Somatic Experiencing. This program is based on “meeting the patients where they are at”. These treatment modalities are evidence-based and have shown extremely promising results in recent studies (Bissel Van der Kolk- 2006). To date, Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention has demonstrated efficacy as a treatment for substance use disorders, in comparison to a treatment-as-usual control group in an outpatient treatment setting (Bowen et al., 2009). The practices and exercises throughout MBRP and MBAR are designed to raise awareness and increase intentional responding by shifting out of “autopilot” and bringing attention to physical, emotional, and cognitive experiences, both in triggering situations and in typical daily routine activities. Several practices specifically target tolerance of negative physical, emotional, and cognitive states, thereby decreasing the need to alleviate discomfort by engaging in impulsive behavior.
