Mindfulness, an ancient technique of being aware of your present situation by paying attention to it, is increasingly showing benefits for both physical and mental difficulties. One of the recent benefits mindfulness has shown is in the area of addiction treatment. Experts are now beginning to think of it as a more effective treatment techniques for addiction.
How does it work?
One of the techniques used, other than mindful breathing, is to focus on the thoughts that comes to your mind without judging them.
One of the reasons mindfulness is being successful as a treatment option for addiction is that, it allows the person to think and respond rather that react to the cravings. It makes them see the reality of those cravings that it is a matter of choice and they are not bound to follow them.
Mindfulness in a randomized clinical trial has seen to be better than the standard treatment programs but it may not work for everyone. Experts have suggested that it would work only if the person has the pre-disposed skills such as being non judgmental and accepting while focusing on thoughts and feelings, if a person lacks it would require a rigorous training for mindfulness to work. However, mindfulness has shown success with dependence of nicotine, cocaine and alcohol.
