With over 20 million practitioners in the United States, meditation is one of the most popular complementary therapies. We offer meditation classes designed to help recovering addicts find balance, spiritual awareness, and relaxation.
Meditation is the practice of introspection through “mental activities” that guide us away from negative external influences. By replacing negative thoughts with positive thoughts, you can reduce cravings, increase your mental clarity for better decision making and improve your overall wellbeing.
People have been practicing meditation for thousands of years. Originally, meditation was used for religious or spiritual reasons. Today, practitioners mainly use meditation for health and relaxation.

Elements of Meditation
Meditation can be described as a “mini vacation” from the noise and chaos of the outside world. There are many forms of meditation that help people gain a better sense of self, improve the quality of their lives, relieve stress, and gain inner peace.
While there are many forms of meditation, most meditation types have the following features:
- Quiet location. Usually, meditation is practiced in quiet setting that has few distractions.
- Focused attention. A focus of attention is one of the most important elements of meditation. This will allow a person to focus on a mantra, image, object or your breathing.
- A specific posture. Meditation can be practiced sitting, lying down, walking or standing. It is essential for the practitioner to be comfortable in whatever position that they are meditating in.
- Relaxed breathing. By using a deep, even-paced breathing technique it allows you to breathe more efficiently.
We offer patients opportunities to learn and practice many forms of meditation.
