The first fully integrated mindfulness program specifically designed for addiction treatment
Mindfulness taught and integrated into daily life using the language of recovery
Mindfulness in Recovery® Treatment Center Programs
Mindfulness in Recovery® was developed by our co-founder, John Bruna. Drawing upon his 33 years in recovery, experience as a substance abuse counselor, educator, Buddhist monastic, and mindfulness teacher, we have integrated the tools and resources of mindfulness into a practical format that is highly effective for people in recovery.
Our integrated program is practical, accessible and is designed to be implemented with both 12-Step focused programs and alternative recovery programs. We provide training and curriculum that can be tailored to your specific treatment model and philosophy.
“Mindfulness in Recovery has been an incredible addition to our treatment program. MIR provides our clients with a practical resource that acts as a bridge to twelve step facilitation and instils positive daily habits and routines. Our clients are not only learning how to meditate, but they’re learning important tools and skills that help them stay sober and live a life in alignment with their values. It’s been invaluable.”
