Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention

mindfullness - Bergand Group

Bergand Group’s Dr. Jerry Hunt is taking a new approach to relapse prevention with a new mindfulness-based relapse prevention group here in Baltimore County. This is an evidence-based program that integrates cognitive behavioral relapse prevention skills with mindfulness practices. Mindfulness practices assist clients in “increasing awareness of triggers and habitual reactions, to develop a new relationship with these experience and to learn conrete skills to use in high risk situations.” (Bowen, S., Chawla, N., and Marlatt, G.A. Mindfulness-Based Relapse Prevention for Addictive Behaviors: A Clinician’s Guide, New York: The Guilford Press, 2011.)

The new group will be held on Wednesday evenings from 5:00 to 6:30 pm. The format is an eight week course with rolling admission. New group members will be assessed and introduced to the content and process of the group. The cost is $65 per person per group, with an introductory cost for the first 8 weeks of $50 per person per group. Please contact our office for more information.
