Meditation is a mind and body practice that has been used for centuries to promote calmness, physical relaxation, improve psychological balance, cope with illness, and enhance overall health and well-being. There are many types of meditation, but most share a quiet setting, a comfortable posture, focused attention, and an open attitude. Meditation encourages a heightened state of awareness and focused attention. Some types of meditation include guided meditations, where the meditator is led by a facilitator, mindfulness-based meditation, which encourages awareness of the present moment, and mantra-based meditations, where focus is centered around a repeated word or phrase. In the context of addiction treatment, meditation can be a useful tool in helping to reduce cravings, manage stress, and enhance psychological well-being. It provides a natural method for managing anxiety and depression, which can often co-occur with addiction and may lead to substance use as a form of self-medication.
Our Process

At Studio City Recovery we integrate meditation practices into our clients treatment programs to support recovery in several ways:

  1. Stress Reduction: One of the primary benefits of meditation is its ability to help manage and reduce stress, a key trigger for substance use and relapse. Regular meditation can lower stress hormone levels and promote relaxation.
  2. Mindfulness: Mindfulness meditation helps individuals stay present and focused, rather than getting caught up in negative thought patterns or cravings. This increased self-awareness can empower individuals to recognize and manage triggers and cravings more effectively.
  3. Improved Emotional Well-being: Regular meditation can improve emotional health, leading to increased self-esteem and positivity. These factors are critical for maintaining motivation and commitment to recovery.
  4. Enhanced Self-Control: Some research suggests that regular meditation can strengthen the prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain responsible for decision-making and impulse control. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals struggling with addiction.
  5. Spiritual Growth: For many, meditation also provides a spiritual aspect to the recovery journey, fostering a sense of inner peace and connection to a larger whole, which can be a significant source of strength during recovery.
Our Goal
At Studio City Recovery, meditation is offered as part of a holistic treatment approach, complementing traditional therapies like cognitive-behavioral therapy and group counseling. By incorporating meditation into our therapy programs, we help our clients develop a valuable skill that can support long-term recovery and overall well-being beyond their stay at the facility. This provides individuals with a natural and accessible tool they can continue to use after treatment, supporting lifelong recovery.
