Meditation for Addiction


Meditation has been shown to be a great preventer of addiction tendencies and significantly increases recovery rates. Beeja meditation also results in greater activation of the cortex, which makes us more rational and less recklessly impulsive, making it easier to make good decisions and avoid the destructive path of least resistance.

  • The problem

    Stress makes us much more vulnerable to developing addiction, by creating greater contrast between our status prior to the point of experience and the lushness of the subsequent high.

    Stress also makes us more likely to keep administering until we’ve crossed the threshold of addiction. And unpredictable stress only compounds the problem further.

    Stress will also inhibit the production of many important neurochemicals, which will lead us to seek replacements from recreational substances and prescription medicines.

    Interestingly, a history of stress, even from foetal or newborn life will make us much more susceptible to developing a dependency later in life. As the biologist Robert Sapolsky points out: “Stress can increase the odds of abusing a drug to the point of addiction in the first place, make withdrawal harder, and make relapse more likely.”

    As such, treating addiction often relies on reducing stress and accommodating for other factors, something rarely offered with other addiction recovery services.

“I discovered meditation in 1980... Within a week I stopped drinking, weeks later I quit smoking...I didn't need the taste, I began to feel extraordinarily well. I remember being so taken with bewildered happiness.”
