Excerpt

In the recent New England Journal of Medicine article on mind-body medicine by Dossett et al. (2020), the authors make some excellent points about the current state of mind-body medicine and its promising future. However, their unsubstantiated claim that mind-body techniques, such as mindfulness, “may not be helpful in the setting of substance use disorder” is inaccurate. In fact, there is a large and rapidly growing body of evidence supporting the efficacy of mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs)—such as mindfulness-based relapse prevention (MBRP; Bowen et al. 2010) and mindfulness-oriented recovery enhancement (MORE; Garland 2013)—for the treatment of substance use disorders (SUDs). For example, a meta-analysis showed that MBIs effectively reduce cravings for—and the use of—psychoactive substances, and decrease stress in SUD patients (Li et al. 2017). Moreover, current research on MBIs for SUDs is moving beyond efficacy studies to focus on elucidating the cognitive, affective, and neural processes underlying the effects of these interventions (Priddy et al. 2018). Research is also underway to identify—consistent with a precision medicine approach—the best predictors of treatment outcomes (Schwebel et al. 2020). Finally, other studies are being carried out to address the implementation of MBIs in real-world settings to facilitate the adoption of this approach in routine clinical practice (Wilson et al. 2017). …
