Mental Health and Substance Use

All of our programs address the emotional and mental issues that distress individuals and disturb family and social life. In some cases, communities facing specific mental health challenges—like suicide or the opioid crisis—bring us in to help build collaborative, trauma-informed, community-based solutions. Bringing mind-body medicine philosophy and skills to addiction recovery is an innovative, effective, and well-suited approach to help address the multilayered complexity of substance use disorder and substance misuse. The strongest evidence for successful substance use disorder recovery includes the combination of coping skills training, family groups, community, and when pertinent, medications.

Through our open-enrollment Professional Training Program in Mind-Body Medicine, we also train a wide variety of health professionals, educators, and first responders to use mind-body approaches in all aspects of their work.
