Mindfulness Practices

Addiction can stem from traumatic events from which a person seeks to avoid through the use of drugs or alcohol. The Friary provides evidence-based treatments including mindfulness practices that teach the skills necessary to cope with the distress life can bring. When the mind dictates behavior through mindfulness instead of through impulse, you make better decisions about your life. Yoga and meditation encourage healing from the inside out and compliment talk therapies. The goal at The Friary is to help clients find their way back to a peaceful quality of life.

Meditation is an evidence-based treatment not only for addiction, but also depression and anxiety. It has measurable benefits similar to exercise and with regular practice it can improve overall wellness.

Yoga teaches distress tolerance or the coping skills necessary to tolerate mental and physical discomfort. Trauma-informed yoga classes are guided to emphasize an inward journey instead of perfect poses.
