This book provides a manualized relapse prevention program for clinicians experienced in substance abuse counseling. This program utilizes meditation techniques that also require experience teaching meditation. It would be helpful if the book included a cd with the meditations that could be copied or downloaded for a higher quality instruction. If you are trained in both addictions counseling and mindfulness meditation, I would rate this program at a 4.5 star rating (you still need to record your own cd's for home practice).

Incorporating the wisdom of MBCT for depression and Kabat-Zin's MBSR and applying the principles and practices to the task of relapse prevention, this is an important, thoughtful, and wise contribution to the field of recovery and addiction medicine. This is the manual for teachers of MBRP, an evidence based treatment. As a teacher and student of MBRP, I can say that this approach has been transformative for many of the students I teach, helping them awaken to a new way of understanding the automaticity of thoughts and feelings, and how that applies to relapse. MBRP teaches people how to put some space between a trigger and an automatic reaction, allowing an opportunity for a more skillful response. MBRP is both a helpful adjunct to traditional 12-step programs, and an alternative for clients who are opposed to 12-step models of recovery. It is a secular approach, and does not promote or discourage any particular spiritual path, although many find the teachings and practices deeply spiritual.
This is the essential guide to conducting MBRP courses but is not considered sufficient in and of itself for conducting classes; clinicians interested in offering this to clients should receive certificate training in the modality.

I will be using this book for a group at a Veterans Administration. The material is clear, comprehensive, and meaningful for the subject material and the target audience. Provides handouts and helpful guidelines for conducting each group session.

This book is amazing. It lays out, session by session, how to separate your thoughts from your emotions and what your body is feeling. It's a mindfulness primer and so much more.

This workbook is working well with clients with addictions who
have repetitive problems with relapse. The mindfulness is
an essential component to include in sound relapse prevention
programming.

This is an excellent book. It has helped me make tremendous strides in my food addiction, and I am sure it can help in any addiction. The only drawback I have is that it needs a CD to go with it. I ended up buying the CD's from Duke's MBSR program (60 bucks), and most of the meditations are in this set. You can order the MBSR tapes from Duke's Integrative Medicine program.
