As a part of recovery, the practice of mindfulness can provide a helpful set of tools for staying grounded in the present moment. In early stages, it allows people to get back in touch with feelings they have avoided for years through drug and alcohol use. In this episode, we have a discussion about what mindfulness is and how it is used at MARR and in the addiction treatment field. We also talk about how the nonjudgmental approach of mindfulness can provide a helpful introduction to spirituality for people resistant to the concept of a Higher Power. Our panel includes: Cailey Binkley, Director of MARR’s Women Recovery Center; Todd Valentine, Residential Manager, Alumni Coordinator, and yoga instructor at our Men’s Center; and special guest Melanie Storrusten, therapist and owner of Align Wellness Solutions in Atlanta.
