The Recovery Village
An increasing number of studies suggest that mindfulness activities, such as yoga and meditation, can help people overcome addiction when complemented by traditional treatment. Meditation's effect on the neurotransmitter GABA in the brain may be a reason why. These practices are said to be effective in reducing withdrawal symptoms and cravings for drugs or alcohol, and it offers a safe and healthy platform to help deal with relapse triggers.
