dc.description.abstract <200 million individuals are currently using drugs illegally in the world, 22.6 million in the U.S.. The costs of drug use and the misfortune of the user's is immeasurable (Carroll, 2017). Relapse rates are high occurring in 50-70% of users (Chiesa, 2013). Researchers have concluded that the typical, clinical methods of treating SUDs may not be as effective and have tested methods of MBI’s for SUD. The qualities that mindfulness offer are believed and proven to decrease the sensations that trigger substance use and increase the sensations that allow people to experience more pleasant mental states. Mindfulness has the ability to correct dysregulated reward processing which can be a cue for SU, but also can decrease the potential pain that cues opioid use. The goal of MBRP is to reduce triggers and emotions that can lead to SU and/or relapse. en_US
