Classes in MBSR, MBCT, and MBRP
are offered throughout Florida and nationally.
The effect of MBRP
and modified MBRP
protocols in substance use disorders was evaluated in four independent research studies.
The main study was a 26-week parallelarm RCT assessing the efficacy of the MBRP for Alcohol Dependence (MBRP-A) intervention, adjunctive to usual care, and compared to usual care alone, for relapse prevention in alcohol dependence.
With permission and assistance from MBRP's authors, the MBRP-A intervention was adapted from the existing, manualized MBRP program for SUDs  to address the needs of alcohol dependent adults.
The research participants were randomly allocated to an MBRP group who received a treatment developed and based on Kabat-Zinn approach and to a no treatment group.
At a 12-month follow-up MBRP participants showed significantly fewer days of substance use and decreased drinking episodes compared to those who used a 12-step program .
The mindfulness part of MBRP
aims to raise awareness of the triggers, monitor internal reactions, and foster more skillful behavioral choices by focusing on increased awareness, acceptance and tolerance of positive and negative physical, emotional, and cognitive states (e.g.
Las vacas mestiza predominantemente Sos indicus con Holstein (MBRH) o Pardo Suizo (MBRP
) mostraron un intervalo al 1er servicio y a la concepcion mas corto (P<0,05) que aquellas mestizas con alta composicion genetica Sos taurus, TABLA III.
Allan Marlatt, PhD has pointed out in his work on mindfulness-based relapse prevention (MBRP
), addiction is a learned response built on both positive and negative reinforcements.
