Description

In Mindfulness for Addiction Problems, Dr. G. Alan Marlatt demonstrates his meditative technique for helping clients with substance addictions. Studies have shown that heavy drinkers who begin meditating show a decrease in the amount they drink.

In this session, Dr. Marlatt works with a 46-year-old woman with alcoholism who has recently relapsed into drinking. He talks with her about her compulsive behaviors, which include her alcoholism, and then walks her through a mindfulness technique for handling strong cravings.
