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® Program Integration
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, 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 instills 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.”

“I’m a happy camper, engaged with my Mindfulness in Recovery daily practice. The tone of the dialogue and the tools available are just right for me. I feel a reassuring cadence between the messiness of my hectic travel calendar and the daily routines in MIR that keep me grounded regardless of the time zone or zip code. After a month of focus and self-discipline, I find I now actually look forward to my morning routine… and that, lo and behold – I do periodically reflect on my intentions and values throughout the day.”
