WHAT ARE RELAPSE PREVENTION THERAPIES?
All substance abuse disorder therapies at their core are therapies to prevent relapse. The specific therapy referred to as Relapse Prevention, or Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP), relate to a certain intervention.
Relapse Prevention is the standard relapse prevention intervention method. It is a cognitive behavioral approach that requires both the client and the therapist to distinguish circumstances that spot the individual at more serious situation for relapse. Behavioral coping, increased self-efficacy and problem solving are the main goal concepts. It identifies both internal experiences (automatic thoughts such as bad thoughts regarding sobriety) and external experiences (individuals associated with the substance use).
Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP) helps the individual be mindful in the moment, versus reacting or judging the scenario based on the initial emotion. The therapist also incorporates meditation routines. It has been shown to decrease craving, relapse rates, and both quantity and frequency of use across several substances. Adapting MBRP to incorporate trauma education and treatment approaches has the potential to effectively treat men and women with dual vulnerabilities of trauma history and SUD.
